From assisting in employment opportunities, to providing stable housing, VOA continues their search for veterans who are homeless or soon-to-be homeless and is need of support in Sacramento, Yolo, El Dorado, and Placer counties.

A large number of men and women who have served our country are currently living on the streets. In most cases, these homeless veterans are unaware that organizations such as VOA provide services specifically designed for those in their current situation.

Parents - Beware! From One Teen To You!

Parents - Beware!  From One Teen To You!

Parents – Beware….

Depression!  You’ve seen it…heard about it…felt it…yet!  As a parent, you might not understand it through the eyes of your child. 

Depression is becoming less visible to those who can help, because of social media allowing the privacy of such thoughts, only shared to other teens. 

On social media, whom are the teens reaching out to? 

Through trending on social media networks, self-harm is becoming more and more transparent to other teens that are not in a position to help depressed students.     

For example, as a young teen, myself, when I go on Instagram, it is shocking how many teens are posting photos which are upsetting and depressing.  Teens are showing in their photos that life is horrible and not worth living.
