The New England Center for Homeless Veterans is a nationally recognized leader in the initiative to end homelessness among Veterans and one of the most effective private Veteran transition programs in the country. Leave No One Behind is an annual fundraising event that is held to support the Center’s education and training center, capital needs and clinical support services. The event is a celebration of the successful transition of many Veterans and a means of ensuring the future of the Center’s services to those who follow. Unfortunately, that need is growing every day, driven by a new generation of Veterans returning from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Tickets are $275 each. For more information, call 617-371-1704 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
