Security Service Charitable Foundation donates $5,000 to Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center to provide support for military, veterans and their families
SAN ANTONIO, TX (January 4, 2018) — Security Service Charitable Foundation has presented the Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center with a $5,000 donation to support their Veterans Integration Program (VIP). VIP helps members of the military and their family transition to civilian life through employment and education resources. Additionally, this program introduces military members to community groups, workshops and networking opportunities.
Established in 2014 by former members of the military, the Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center is home to nearly 30 veteran-focused organizations. Having a consolidated location for these services provides a team environment and helps people in need know exactly where to turn to meet a diverse array of challenges. They provide a wide range of services to assist military, veterans and their families, including behavioral health counseling, employment and transition support, job placement and internships, benefits support, non-clinical case management and resource navigation, housing assistance, financial coaching, legal assistance, education assistance, and more.
“There is no question that we can make a difference in this world,” said Bob McLaughlin, chief operating officer for Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center. “At the Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center, we have the privilege of witnessing people’s lives being positively impacted every day. This donation from Security Service Federal Credit Union is going to help our military members and veterans navigate the many challenges that arise as they transition out of the military. There’s no better way to say thank you for your service than to walk with them when they are in need of our help.”
“At Security Service, we believe it is of critical importance to serve those who have served our country,” said Derrick Aguilar, senior vice president of member service for Security Service Federal Credit Union – Mountain Region. “The Mt. Carmel Veterans Service Center has created a fantastic, service-based platform to unite various veteran-focused organizations under one roof and provide a liaison to help military, veterans and their families navigate available resources. We’re honored to be able to serve them through this donation and are grateful for the impact they are making in the lives of our service members.”
The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union’s market areas.
