DLH Holdings Corp. : DLH LAUNCHES NATIONAL WINDOW OF SERVICE FROM "9/11" to
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
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. DLH's first annual "National Window of Service" is an
important step in this commitment."
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. From our commitment to hiring warfighters to
assisting with the Department of Veteran Affairs "Stand-Down" events, DLH is
always focused on how we can give back."
