Navy Veteran Housed on Valentine's Day!

Navy Veteran Robin was housed last week on Valentine's Day! Here he is pictured at the BRC, ready to leave with his keys and move-in kit. Robin served in the Navy from 1957 to 1966.

According to Callie Gregg, HomeFirst VESP SC Outreach/Case manager, Robin made people smile and laugh. "He made sure any new veteran that came to HomeFirst would be welcomed warmly," shared Callie, who helped house Robin in three months with the help of Jose Toledo, HomeFirst VESP Housing Specialist.
