Each year members and supporters of Decorate A Vet raise funds and receive donations of time, goods and services to help our local veterans who have helped us live freer lives. With the help of volunteers consisting of neighbors, friends, family members and local business owners, Decorate A Vet assemble annually to refresh and restore local veterans’ homes for the holidays by cleaning, repairing and decorating to beautify those homes as well as their community -- facebook.com/Decorate.A.Vet or www.DecorateAVet.org.
Britepaths expresses the customized mentoring approach we take in conducting our self-sufficiency programs. For each client, we believe that there is no single, ‘right’ path.

We are so grateful to everyone who has been supporting our work, and we hope you will join us in embracing our new name and be inspired to take part as we continue helping those among us who are struggling move from a place of need to one of true self-sufficiency.” Learn more about Britepaths at: http://britepaths.org.
