#ShareWorthy Meet Frank and Ramondia. In 2018, their paths crossed. Ramondia, an #AirForce #Vet, was experiencing homelessness while Frank was in his second year of service as an #AmeriCorpsVISTA serving with Hope with Love - an organization that connects the vulnerable with needed services.

In his role, Frank helped Ramondia with accessing a verified network of 200 available services. As a result, Ramondia was able to access an attorney, laundry, food, a job, and a permanent home -- all within a few short days. Four years later, Ramondia remains stably housed and Frank continues to serve with Hope.
