H.E.L.O.: Heroes Entering Life’s Opportunities
As the number of returning U.S. military service members continues to grow, the H.E.L.O. Foundation aims to work with employers and educators to make sure these veterans are equipped with the resources needed to help them transition into successful and meaningful careers. H.E.L.O.’s efforts have helped develop resources for veterans at educational institutions, provide networking opportunities with businesses and spread awareness through local community events.
H.E.L.O. has started to partner with colleges and universities across the nation to help develop Veteran Resource Centers that provide career services, scholarships and other resources for veterans. H.E.L.O. builds awareness on these campuses by holding Freedom Fest events that build awareness and raise funds that help support the organization’s mission. Activities at Freedom Fests include an obstacle course, exotic car show, and a military show-n-tell.
Recently, ScribeAmerica and H.E.L.O. participated in the ACG South Florida Inaugural Charity Golf Event in support of returning veterans. The event raised $50,000 to support South Florida veterans.
