Congratulations to the #VOAFL #Miami Hogar I & II team!
Camilo Delgado shared, "Reinforcing the positive increases the positive and we have something very positive going on in Miami, Florida. Out of 78 providers in Dade County, Hogar I rose from #46 to # 5, a huge jump in performance measures. Hogar II rose from #57 to #14, another coup for the Miami Hogar Team." This program provides supportive services to individuals with severe and persistent mental illness to stabilize and prepare them for a life of independence.

The #VOAFL program in Pensacola, Florida proudly welcomed the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association last month for a wonderful BBQ. The motorcycles rolled up at 11:30am providing food and grilled hamburgers, hot dogs & chicken for participants & friends! In addition to lunch, #CVMA donated 3 new picnic tables and 30 outdoor chairs and tables for the resident porches. We would also like to thank American Legion Post 240 for the donation of flags and raising our colors in a flag ceremony.
Everyone had a fantastic time, we are extremely honored to have so much support during our 3rd Annual Bikers BBQ!
We can't wait for next year!
