DLH NATIONAL WINDOW OF SERVICE
Few have given more to our Nation than the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces in peace and in war. DLH strives to fulfill its promise to serve veterans by living a set of core values which defines who we are as an organization: Integrity, Commitment, Respect, and Excellence. Veterans trust that we will live these values, every day, in our work at medical facilities, CMOPs, and military installations.
Each year DLH hosts a two-month long “National Window of Service (NWS)” where employees across the nation are encouraged to give, volunteer, and serve in a variety of ways toward solving the plight of our homeless veterans in the communities in which we work. So each year, from 9/11-11/11 (Patriot Day to Veterans Day), we offer this “Call To Duty” to all of our work sites and remote employees to get involved in a local initiative to help heal, house, or hire our veterans.

Atlanta VEO Event
On Saturday November 1, 2014 the Atlanta office as a part of the NWS initiative, organized a Heroes Hot Dog Festival for the residents of Atlanta's Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO). The Heroes Hot Dog Festival was an afternoon of food, carnival games, music, and raffle prizes. It was a huge success and will be an annual event to support our Nation's Veterans.
The VEO provides housing, treatment and recovery for addiction, healthy meals, and basic necessities, for homeless veterans as well as medical care, mental health counseling and life-skills training.
