There are currently over 3.7 million disabled veterans* in the U.S. Many of them are struggling to find a sense of normalcy and reconnect with civilian life and their families.

The Links to Freedom Golf Foundation (L2F) was formed to implement Wounded Warrior and Disabled Veteran (WW&DV) rehabilitative golf programs at military and civilian golf facilities nationwide to help aid in that struggle.

Because of its close proximity to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Fort Belvoir Golf ClubÆs Head Professional, Steve Greiner, saw the need for a rehabilitative golf program up close. He watched vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with the physical and mental wounds of war and thought he could help. In 2008, he established the Fort Belvoir Wounded Warrior Golf Program. Using this model, military golf facilities can increase the number of Wounded Warriors, disabled veterans and their families participating in golf activities, and provide benefit from the programÆs rehabilitative effects.

This proven model demonstrates that the golf community, PGA and LPGA of America Golf Professionals, along with corporate America, stand ready to support the WW&DV communities in its mission to care for their own. Additionally, the foundation will bolster and improve DoD golf facilities through partnering agreements with the servicesÆ Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) programs.

The agency has grown over its forty-one year history, responding to community needs.

Today, New Hope Housing operates 6 shelters, 3 transitional housing, 9 permanent supportive housing, outreach, prevention, and employment programs in Fairfax County, Arlington County, Alexandria, and Falls Church. New Hope Housing provides permanent housing and/or case management to 160 adults and 15 families for periods of a year or longer. We provide shelter for approximately 119 adults on any given night and up to 80 more per night in winter.

Since 1969, UCM has worked tirelessly to provide relief for families in our community. For five decades, we focused on providing essential human services to our neighbors in need. During that time, weÆve realized that poverty is a lot like gravity -- a powerful force that pulls down individuals, families, and entire communities.

Too often we see the same individuals year after year, and then we see their children, and sometimes their grandchildren over the span of many years and even decades. THAT is the gravity of poverty.We must alter the conditions that lead to multigenerational poverty. We have witnessed these conditions far too often among community members we serve ù inadequate transportation, education, housing, nutrition, safety, and employment.

Working in collaborations weÆve never seen before, on a scale weÆve never attempted before, our aspiration is
to end multigenerational poverty. United, our community will achieve big dreams. United, our community will empower our neighbors in need to transform their lives.
