Veteran receives free car from SVdPSP Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program.

Danile came to our Pasco SSVF office for help after becoming homeless.  He worked with his case manager and staff to end his homelessness.  A car was donated to our program, with the stipulation that it go to a Veteran in need.  Through a lottery system, Danile was awarded the 2004 GMC Denali. 

Danile's Army career included 13R Field Infantry, Radar operator out of Ft Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division 2nd field artillery Detachment. Danile served from 2002-2005, and was in the first wave of deployments to Iraq in February 2003 until February 2004.

Like most soldiers, he was dealing with mental health issues and had developed a dependency to alcohol. He was dealing with chronic homelessness since getting out of the Army and came to SSVF for help. He is stably housed and has a full time job, where he works over 50hrs a week, sometimes more.

We thank Danile for his service and wish him the best of luck with his vehicle!
