Veteran's Helping Hand was created by Sandy Walker, a Vietnam Veteran who did not want any of his fellow Veterans to feel isolated or unwelcomed after coming home for war. Sandy's dream was to open a community center that would not only provide emergency shelter, but would also provide immediate help with basics supplies such as food, clothing, and transportation. Some of you may have heard of his work over the years, where he dedicated his life to serving the homeless and needy of York City and York County. Sandy was able to help meet the needs of a countless numbers of Veterans. Unfortunately, his service in Vietnam lead to severe health issues and Sandy lost his final battle on March 14, 2015. Sandy was in the beginning stages of creating the first homeless center for Veterans in York County. After his death, members of the York County community worked hard in Sandy's honor and in October of 2015, Mr. Sandy's Homeless Veterans Center became a reality!
