More than 20,000 veterans in Palm Beach County live below the poverty level. Faith*Hope*Love*Charity serves more than 600 cases a year of veterans who need help. The grant, which came as a surprise to this tiny charity, will have a major impact on establishing temporary housing and providing resources to get veterans back to work. Struggling veterans will be at the event to talk with reporters and share their personal experiences of trying to integrate back into Palm Beach County after serving their country.
