"There's a lot of veterans who don't know what they're entitled to when it comes to their benefits, when it comes to the services that the VA offers," said Sandie Walker, President of Veterans Helping Hands. "We're actually a bridge between the VA and veterans who don't know what's out there."

Walker also said support from the community and Representative Schreiber allows Veterans Helping Hands to keep offering its services to those in need.
