"I contacted Veterans Forward because I had issues with my furnace and knew the repair cost would be challenging. The temperatures were below zero, and I had been without heat for almost two days. They gave us a gift card to purchase a space heater to keep us warm until someone could come out and repair the furnace. I called several repair technicians, and nobody committed to fixing the issue. Michael and his team reached out to their connections, and within a few hours, someone made the repairs. I genuinely don’t know what would’ve happened without their assistance. They are very professional and committed to serving the veteran community. I am incredibly grateful for the help of the Veterans Forward program."
