Founded by a UW dentistry professor Theresa Cheng, the nonprofit is meant to "improve veteran's lives by connecting them with services and good in their communities" according to the UW Magazine.
Concerned about depression, PTSD and homeless veteran's, Cheng offered a free day in her dentistry practice for low-income veteran's and their families, located in Issaquah which she had for almost 25 years.
In her interview with UW Magazine she "realized these are very tough, very able people, but they have major challenges."
She began asking her patients what would make their lives better. With this information she founded the nonprofit and is able to call dentists around the country to help veterans. Her nonprofit contacts other businesses and resources to help connect veterans with food, clothing and other resources.
Her website helps vet's find their transportation options along the western portion of Washington state, mental health support through building body strength, crisis hotline support, information to support veteran's finding civilian jobs and other supporting resources.
Professionals are invited to offer their expertise to the support of veteran's and their families and to sign up on their "Professional services" page.
