Veterans At Risk Due To COVID-19’s Devastating Economic Impact Are Finding Free Help To Recover At Goodwill.
New Mexico Veterans and their families can find FREE HELP to recover from housing and economic hardship at Goodwill. Goodwill’s free services are broad but include independent housing, covering past due rent or utilities, and job placement support to secure the veteran a great job. The process is swift. All of this usually takes place within hours to days of the qualified veteran’s approved application for assistance.
This comprehensive level of assistance is not new to Goodwill. It’s part of the many free social service programs available to all New Mexicans since 1941. Marketing Manager, Pamela Russom, says, “we have nine free programs and services. Three of which cater specifically to veterans. Our dedicated teams consist of caseworkers with master-level degrees and backgrounds in the military. We know exactly how to help a veteran get back on their feet, and we have the resources to make it happen fast. Last year we served over 1800 New Mexico veterans.”
If you know a veteran or are a veteran in need, please call Goodwill’s corporate office at (505)881-6401 between the hours of 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday. Veterans can also go online and submit their application for services here.
