The Vets Multi-Service Center Supporting Our Vets Throughout the Tri-State Download

Joe Brooks, Executive Director of the Veterans Multi-Service Center, and Beasley Media Group’s John DeBella, legendary Morning Host at WMGK, discussed their work on behalf of the VMC, a non-profit organization that supports veterans who are suffering from their service.  The VMC offers emergency relief for Vets facing homelessness, mental health and addiction issues, aging vets needing healthcare or burial funds, and vets who have fallen out of the system who need to reconnect with their benefits.  

The VMC helps more than 6,500 Veterans and families annually through offices throughout the tri-state area.   Their services include Veteran Employment programs, Veteran Housing Assistance with temporary and long-term shelter, Women Veterans Programs with housing and woman-to-woman counseling, and Veterans Benefit / Entitlement Assistance to help them navigate the bureaucracy.   They connect vets with medical and mental care and addiction help. 

The Veterans Multi-Service Center was founded in 1980 by local Vietnam Veterans.  Knowing John was a supporter, they approached him a few years later to help raise funds and the annual John DeBella Veteran radiothon was born, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars through his all-day broadcast and online auctions.
