“I Am OIC” Chris’s Story

The “I am OIC” program started a few years ago and continues to be a powerful way for our clients, staff, donors and volunteers to express why they are a part of the OIC family. The following is a story submitted by Chris as he recounts his experience volunteering with OIC and networking with others:

“I came to the OIC in mid-January seeking to volunteer. I just went through a very close and competitive campaign for District Judge and one of my campaign issues was to have our court system better support our veterans. I made a promise that no matter what the outcome of the election, I was going to dedicate some time towards veterans to help eradicate the many barriers they face in the civilian world.

Since that time I have been fortunate enough to meet numerous veterans and hear their stories. My partner (Karen Newman) and I have traveled extensively and enrolled dozens of veterans into our HVRP program. More importantly, we have actually made a positive impact in their lives by providing them with employment, training and various services. As a veteran, I feel fortunate to help those fellow veterans who I know would do the same for me had our circumstances been different. I feel grateful to have this opportunity to make a real difference for our vets and our community. It’s a wonderful feeling to not only commemorate our veterans but to actually commit to them and their needs. The OIC made this amazing experience a reality. I am successful because… I am OIC!”
