DCHV Spaghetti dinner

On Thursday, July 23, DCHV had the pleasure of hosting a spaghetti dinner for local veterans at its Chestnut Avenue location. The dinner was graciously provided by Dr. Clark Harris and Vernice Strother of the House of Judah Empowerment Outreach Ministry. We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with other organizations who are also dedicated to celebrating US veterans.



DCHV was proud to attend Congressman Carney of Delaware's July "office hours," a series of events designed to foster communication amongst veterans and the organizations and government offices that serve them. It was a great day and a great chance for us to spread awareness about what we do.
