. . . GRASP has been so helpful.  Thanks for keeping me housed while I've been going to therapy and waiting for PTSD compensation from VA. 
          The most beneficial thing is the security of having a roof over my head during all of this.  My VA education benefits ran out just before completing my degree.  GRASP’s subsidy, helping with the rent, was enough to let by budget afford the last two classes I need this fall.  I will graduate and be on my feet, thanks to GRASP.     Thank so much

From a property manager
- Thank you so much for all  GRASP’s  efforts on behalf of the veterans! :)

 We’ll call him Arnie
          Arnie is a young Veteran who acquired PTSD while serving in Afghanistan.  VA definitely recognizes the challenges that PTSD places on returning soldiers, but their compensation is very slow in coming. Employment  is heavily affected, and these courageous soldiers most commonly need to train for isolated or self-employment.
          Arnie is smart and motivated and wanted to be empowered by creating his own future.  He immediately took steps to acquire formal education in an industry that he felt he could handle emotionally.  He was neat and clean, easy to visit with,  and was excited at the prospect of getting assistance while he completed his degree.   He was grateful for our help that permitted him to move forward toward professional independence.  In his own words
(in red, to the right):  

And this is why we do what we do! 

It makes every donation worthwhile

“. . . how truly grateful and appreciative I am for the assistance that you and grasp have given me — I am on my feet again!, but not only the (monthly subsidies) but also the budget exercises and training . .  .  And your constant source of encouragement and  the reminders of the importance of a positive and strong attitude!   I have so much confidence moving forward . . .”

Awesome and thank you!  You have NO idea!  Thank you!


 

I just so amazed at how much you care for us with barely even knowing us but again thanks . . .

Hi, Thank you so much for working with me. Thank you GRASP very much! Without this program I would be lost or stuck in life, I have worked my whole life to get this far, but in hard unseen times like the ones I have been going though, I would have lost everything. THANK YOU ALL!!!
