Veterans Program at MHA Houston Receives Congressional Certificate


The Military Veteran Peer Network at Mental Health America of Greater Houston received a Certificate of Congressional Recognition from The Honorable Sheila Jackson Lee on February 12 for its partnership and exemplary volunteer efforts with The Beacon Day Center, a nonprofit that helps Houston’s underserved and homeless population.

Peer mentors with MVPN volunteer alongside justice-involved veterans that are working to satisfy court mandated community service hours.  Veterans volunteering at The Beacon are not only helping themselves, but also helping provide hope to one of the city's most vulnerable populations.
