District Attorney Hoovler Promotes Efforts to Fight Homelessness for Veterans
District Attorney’s Office Teaming up With Yerik Israel Toney Foundation to Fight Veteran Homelessness
Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler said that Orange County District Attorney’s Office has teamed up with the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation to fight homelessness for veterans. Together, The District Attorney’s Office and the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation has donated 100 sleeping bags to be used by veterans facing housing instability. Additionally, the Office will provide support to assist veterans with food and other necessary services. This collaboration will give aid to those who have selflessly served the nation and will assist in preventing the unnecessary criminal justice cycle that often befalls veterans in need.
Founded in 2016, the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation is a non for profit full 501(c)3 foundation based in Monticello, New York which helps families with premature newborns, military service veterans and their families. The Foundation helps provide housing, healthcare and other necessary assistance to veterans who need the help.
“I am glad to participate in any way to render assistance to our country’s veterans,” said District Attorney David M. Hoovler. “Those who have given so much for us all deserve our attention and support. I am thrilled to work with Sharon Toney-Finch and the Yerik Israel Toney Foundation to help wherever possible.”
