Recently, Cypress Door & Glass LLC was approached to estimate a new automatic door for a housing building in Philadelphia. Nothing new there; this kind of call happens all the time. But when we got there, we discovered something. Something we feel is truly amazing.
The customer was Impact Services, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping disabled and homeless veterans get off the streets, and get back on their feet. Impact provides supportive transitional and permanent housing for homeless Veterans. All of these programs serve special needs homeless veterans with dual diagnoses (mental health and drug/alcohol addiction.)
Impact was awarded the first USDOL Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program in Philadelphia in 1993. DOL considers HVRP to be their most successful model for moving homeless veterans back into jobs.
We encourage you to learn more about Impact, and how they better our community, and especially the lives of our veterans. To see how you may be able to support this organization, please go to their website at www.impactservices.org/veterans-services/ or contact them at (215) 739-1600.
Cypress Door & Glass LLC was honored to have donated a new Handicap Automatic Door to assist the rehabilitating Veterans. As veterans, we understand the importance of their service, and deeply appreciate Impact Services’ commitment to the men and women who have served our country.
