Give an Hour joins Mission United in Hampton Roads
11/11/2016 by Administrator Account

NORFOLK, Va. – Give an Hour announces a partnership with the United Way of South Hampton Roads and its newest initiative, Mission United. Active duty military members, their families and veterans in need can get services and support through the new website launching on Veterans Day 2016, in addition to calling 757-858-7777.

Powered by veteran-owned software company, UniteUS, Mission United unites vetted human services organizations such as Give an Hour into one collaborative and streamlined on-line portal. A Mission United case manager is assigned to help each client obtain any additional services they may need, and to manage client progress to a successful outcome. This “one-stop-shop” approach provides the efficiency appropriate for client needs that are often immediate.
