To those who are kind enough to take the time to read this I thank you,
My name is George Wylam; I am an honorably discharged and disabled veteran of the United States Army. For the last three years I have worked as a volunteer with the Veteran's Housing Facility of Silicon Valley in San Jose, California. I have been working with and assisting other veterans suffering from PTSD, physical disabilities, mental health issues, drug and alcohol addictions, and homelessness. While working with the veterans housing I have started an outreach program to homeless veterans, been involved in peer support counseling, assisted with screening and admissions of new clients, and other aspects of the program. I personally found this a very fulfilling vocation and have developed a passion for working with other veterans. In April of 2018, I am moving to Anchorage, Alaska, I state where I lived in my youth and came to love. My goal is to continue the work I have been involved in with veterans once I arrive. This will involve my returning to school first to get accredited as a drug and alcohol counselor and then moving into becoming a licensed clinical therapist. As I stated earlier, I am myself a disabled veteran, currently on social security disability and as such my funds are limited The monies raised will be going towards acquiring housing upon arriving, finding moderate and reliable transportation, and tuition and other school expenses. Whether I receive donations or not, I will be moving approximately 10 April, 2018. Any donations that I am blessed to receive would make the move and transition towards reaching my goals more manageable.
All the information I have provided about me, my work of the last three years with other veterans, and my goals of continuing to serve other veterans is easily verifiable. I invite you to visit my Facebook or to g
Email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.
If you decide that my cause and goals are worthwhile and choose to support me financially in any amount, I thank you in advance. If you are unable to financially assist me, but would still like to support my goals, you could assist by forwarding this email to your friends. You will find my Go Fund Me and Facebook Fundraiser links below.
Again I thank you for taking the time to read this and consider my request.
