Welcome to the 19th Annual Leave No One Behind Gala. This evening is a celebration of the Center’s mission—to serve those who have served, and to ensure that every Veteran receives the support and assistance they may need to achieve success, independence, and dignity. The New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV) serves Veterans on behalf of us all, and helps make good on this nation’s commitment to support its Veterans in their lives after service. Even in the most challenging times, a Veteran’s path to housing begins at the NECHV with a place to live, shelter, support, and transitional housing.
Thank you to all in attendance, whether in person or virtually, tonight. Your altruistic spirit helps provide the resources required to assist some of our community’s most vulnerable Veterans in achieving success and independent living. Simply put, the NECHV would not be the strong, viable organization that it is today without the ongoing philanthropic support that all of you help provide.
Tonight’s event is put together by an incredibly driven, compassionate, and dedicated committee of volunteers. We are so grateful for their tireless commitment to help envision and carry off the Center’s largest and longest running fundraising event. I hope you enjoy tonight’s program, and are informed and inspired by this year’s honorees and keynote speaker.
On behalf of the Center’s Board of Directors, its Staff, and most importantly, the Veterans who seek to improve their trajectory in life—thank you.
