DLH Holdings Corp. : DLH LAUNCHES NATIONAL WINDOW OF SERVICE FROM "9/11" to "Veterans Day" Company will focus on Veterans' homelessness and other Veterans' challenges across the nation as part of its DLH Cares initiative Atlanta, Georgia - September 9, 2013-DLH Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: DLHC), a technical services provider to Federal government agencies specializing in healthcare, logistics, and contingency response announced today that it plans to launch its first annual "National Window of Service" commencing September 11, 2013 (Patriot Day) and ending on November 11, 2013 (Veteran's Day) as part of its "DLH Cares" initiative. According to a recent U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development there are more than 62,000 homeless veterans on any given night. Factors such as the lingering effects of post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, and access to health care all contribute to the homeless veteran challenge. DLH's personnel throughout the country will participate in the National Window of Service in support of veteran causes across the country. Assistance will be provided at non-profit veteran homeless facilities, VA Medical Centers, company locations, and other sites. Activities range from participating in the Department of Veterans Affairs "Stand Down" events to organizing food and clothing drives as well as volunteering with local veteran organizations. The company will post information on these events on its website at www.dlhcorp.com/dlh-cares. DLH President and CEO, Zach Parker, commented: "We are committed to being a positive force for our nation's heroes in our communities. Our approach to corporate citizenship combines the talent and creativity of our people, and the resources of our business to make a significant impact on the veterans in our communities.

Kevin Wilson, president of DLH Solutions, added: "Our service members have made incalculable contributions and sacrifices for our country and supporting them in their efforts to successfully integrate back into civilian life is one of DLH's highest priorities.
