After being assisted by St. Patrick Center’s Supportive Services for Veteran Families program, James is enjoying retirement at his new apartment in Spanish Lake, Missouri. He is also very involved with his church.
Now James has a new found sense of excitement and freedom after receiving a donated vehicle. “This is giving me a sense of independence, and this vehicle will greatly help me to make my appointments at the VA.”
