The goal of the Eagle's Landing program is to provide services and housing for up to two years to assist in reintegrating veterans into meaningful employment through their participation in employment training and educational enhancements. Medical and dental care will be available, as will be counseling and other services to help the returning vets build self-esteem and confidence.
Donors, such as churches, civic organizations, businesses and individuals, often make contributions to the community. Right now, Dahmer said, the most prevalent and constant needs are laundry detergent, powder or liquid, and paper products such as bathroom tissue and paper towels. Of course, a tray of brownies or chocolate-chip cookies wouldn't be turned away.
For information on other ways to help the residents at Eagle's Landing, to take a tour of the facility or to talk with Dahmer about speaking at an organizational function, contact him at 251-421-1229 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
