The New England Center and Home for Veterans recently received a grant of $10,000 from Operation Hat Trick (OHT) for the purpose of supporting programs that address substance use disorder among Veterans, as well as programs that support Veterans with other physical and mental health challenges. In a letter to the Center, OHT President and Founder Dot Sheehan wrote the foundation admired the way NECHV treats “the most vulnerable Veterans we have with dignity, respect, and great care.”

The NECHV looks forward to working with OHT in their mission of generating awareness, support, and funding for the recovery of America’s wounded military members. Through their sales of branded merchandise, OHT works to reach their goal of supporting both active service members and Veterans. Thank you, OHT, for your generous grant to support Veterans at NECHV!
