DOL Staff Award - Tom Fischer, Sandy Swartz, and Dana Bourne
The DOL Staff Award is given out to an individual who has exhibited a strong commitment to the employment needs of veterans transitioning off the streets. This year the DOL Staff Awards goes to Tom Fischer and Sandy Swarts from the South Carolina DOL-VETS office, and Dana Bourne, the Regional Administrator for DOL-VETS in Boston. These DOL-VETS staff members do what it takes to make sure their grantees have the support they need to best serve veterans enrolled in HVRP. Employment not only provides a homeless veteran an income, it provides a sense of pride and purpose. These DOL staff members take on a leadership role as advocates for veterans, especially homeless veterans, and NCHV is thankful for their dedication.
