Write a letter of hope to those struggling

Many of the seniors, veterans and homeless families that we serve are isolated as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. A few kind words of encouragement would mean a great deal to them. VOA has designed printable cards which you can use write a short message to one of our residents to bring them hope that brighter days are coming. Send a letter here at
