Fox teams with US veteran-owned company that helps homeless heroes get back on their feet
Help for veterans ‘available no matter where you are’: U.S. VETS CEO
U.S. VETS CEO Steve Peck says the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed the non-profit to offer telehealth services to American veterans anywhere in the world.
In honor of Veterans Day, the nonprofit U.S. VETS teamed up with Fox Corp., the parent of Fox News and the Fox broadcast network, to launch the "Make Camo Your Cause" campaign, furthering its mission to end veteran homelessness and help heroes return to civilian life.
CEO Steve Peck joined "Mornings with Maria" Thursday encouraging people to wear camouflage print and show veterans "broad community support."
Even in the midst of a pandemic, Peck said the organization has been able to reach more veterans through telehealth, providing them assistance anywhere in the world.
"COVID has introduced telehealth to a broad population now, so we are reaching veterans beyond our sites," Peck told FOX Business’ Cheryl Casone. "There is very likely that help available no matter where you are."

Founded 28 years ago, U.S. VETS was created on the central mission of addressing veteran homelessness, while also combating employment and mental health issues.
"We have psychologists and social workers really addressing the issues that got them homeless in the first place so that when they go back out into the community, they're stable, they're independent and they're contributing again," Peck explained.
