2013 Profiles of Courage Honoree and “Mayor of the Tenderloin
This year, we shift from our tradition of honoring a veteran client with the Profiles of Courage Award. Instead, we celebrate our own frontline staff who stayed focused on our mission of healing the wounds of war for the most vulnerable veterans among us. Staff remain flexible and fluid during this unprecedented pandemic. As you know, our motto is vets helping vets, and many of our frontline staff workers are veterans themselves. We hope these stories about our staff and the stories they share about the veterans they serve will inspire you and give you hope during this difficult time. Please send a hearty round of applause to these dedicated frontline workers.
