DLH INCREASES ITS SUPPORT TO HELP END VETERAN HOMELESSNESS
Atlanta, Georgia – February 19, 2013 – DLH Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: DLHC), a leading healthcare and logistics services provider to the Federal Government, including the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs, announced today that it is furthering its community outreach initiatives through the addition of the Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO) – an Atlanta, Georgia-based non-profit – to its DLH Cares Program. The company’s first initiative with the VEO is sponsoring a homeless veteran for rehabilitation and reintegration as part of their Adopt-a-Vet Program.
DLH Executive Vice President, Col. John Armstrong (US Army, RET) commented: “The VEO has an exceptional mission that is close to our heart; their pledge to rehabilitate and reintegrate homeless veterans back into society is a key component of our own community outreach initiatives and is a critical issue facing veterans today. Our commitment to Adopt-a-Vet is the first step in our partnership with the VEO, and we look forward to many years of support together.”
Zachary Parker, President & CEO added: “It is important to bridge the gap between our homeless veterans and the Department of Veterans Affairs. These men and women are living on the streets and they have no way of accessing the benefits to which they are entitled for their service to our country. We must help to not only meet their basic needs but also provide the support these individuals need to become productive members of society once again. The relationship with VEO will become an important component of our DLH community outreach program – DLH Cares.”
Along with the VEO, DLH proudly supports other veteran outreach organizations such as Hero Health Hire, Hope for the Warriors®, and Operation Homefront. Additionally, DLH actively participates in volunteer activities at its locations throughout the U.S. and is committed to making a positive impact in their local communities.
