MCCAC's new SSVF Coordinator

 Miles Thornton III has been hired as the new SSVF Veterans Coordinator this month taking over for Bob DeRocher who is our new Weatherization Coordinator for the Weatherization Programs.  

Miles is a former Army Veteran who served in several duties in the Middle East. Miles has worked a lot with data collection and has a great IT background which should help him with all of the forms involved in the SSVF program.

The program is designed to help with housing for Veterans who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless. During the past couple of years the SSVF program has helped over 72 Veterans find or keep their housing. 

Miles will be taking 27 hours of required training for the program as well as working with our Veterans in need of housing assistance.  We look forward to Miles  getting out and meeting many of you as he makes his way through the SSVF program.
