Speaker:  Naomi King gave us an update on what is happening at the US VETS of Prescott.  Naomi’s history of US Vets began with Stephen Peck, president and CEO of U.S.VETS, the nation’s largest non-profit provider of comprehensive services for at-risk and homeless veterans and families. A veteran himself, Peck fought with in the Marines in the Vietnam War. He has been working on veteran homelessness issues since 1991. 
The U.S. VETS opened in 2003 in Prescott.  They work closely with the VA Hospital in our community.
The Mission of U.S. Vets is the successful transition of military veterans and their families through the provision of housing, counseling, career development and comprehensive support.  Veterans in Progress, Prescott’s transitional living facility, currently has a capacity of 72 beds.  This program is targeted to serve homeless veterans with goals of attaining stable housing and employment, working toward meeting their individual steps to self-sufficiency. 
Through the program’s individualized case management and utilization of many community resources, we identify and address the barriers that participants have upon entry and strive to eliminate these barriers before discharge.  Barriers can be obtaining/retaining employment, maintaining sobriety, stabilizing mental health, legal issues, lack of transportation, physical disabilities or financial debt.
U.S. Vets of Prescott serves the entire Northern Arizona with over 500 vulnerable and homeless veterans each year, providing meals, case management, employment assistance and workforce development.  In January they will move into a new facility off of Whipple St. in Prescott.
Naomi urged our members to utilize their Arizona Charitable Tax Credit up to $800 for a joint return and up to $400 for an individual return, then subtract those amounts from your Arizona State Tax bill.

Good Morning Sunupians,


I was reading the Rotarian magazine the other day ( no I was really reading it) and came across quite a few ideas for fund raising that I think might very beneficial to our club. I plan on bringing some of these up at our next board meeting, the board would love to hear any thoughts our fellow Rotarian's might have on new and fun ways to raise more funds. I look forward to seeing everyone at Wednesdays meeting.
