Buddy to Buddy is a volunteer program that does outreach and support for Michigan veterans. The event brings together services at a single location to provide resources for homeless veterans and those at risk of becoming homeless. More than 50 area agencies were in attendance to provide health screenings, shots, benefits enrollment, employment help, housing help and clothing. The event is put on by Volunteers of America Michigan in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.
