The Project

Jeremiah King will serve more than 125 veterans, submit at least 63 cases, obtain as many positive outcomes as possible, secure/preserve $125,000 in economic benefits, and leverage at least 10 volunteers. To provide low income veterans with access to justice by providing legal services in multiple areas including healthcare, housing, and family.

Jeremiah chose this opportunity because of his grandfather. His grandfather is a World War II Veteran, and has received a variety of services to help him financially and medically. Jeremiah have taken him to appointments at the VA, and helped him locate other resources. Because of the high level of respect Jeremiah has for Veterans, he felt an obligation to give back to the Veteran community.
