Welcome to three new members who have been elected to the board of directors of the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative.  Tim Kenney, Janet Hern and Dan Luke have diverse backgrounds but a shared commitment to help veterans.

Master Sergeant Timothy P. Kenney, supervisor of the KC-135 Communication Navigation Systems Shop at the 128th Air Refueling Wing Maintenance Squadron, at Milwaukee’s Mitchell Field. A Milwaukee native, he joined the Wisconsin Air National Guard in 1998 and has deployed to Egypt, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Guam and Qatar in support of operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, New Dawn, and Pacific Tanker Task Force.

Janet Hern, who has 10 years of case management experience and is currently leads the Operation Turning Point Program at the Center for Veterans Issues. The program provides housing and case management for veterans and their families who are disabled and were once homeless. Ms. Hern conducts home visits and assists veterans in becoming more self-sufficient. She previously worked for the Department of Family Care and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Daniel Luke, who has more than 20 years’ experience as a professional cleaner and property manager, and has operated his own small business. A West Allis native, he is a volunteer for Interfaith Senior Programs as well as the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative


Veterans Day events help homeless vets

Veterans Day weekend is jam-packed with opportunities to help the Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Initiative and the homeless and at-risk veterans we serve. It starts on Saturday, Nov. 9, with a Comedy Show. On Sunday, Nov. 10, we will sponsor a Turkey Dinner, open to the public, with veterans in need as our guests. And on Monday, Nov. 11, Beyond Glory, a stirring tribute to Medal of Honor recipients at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts will share the proceeds with MHVI. See the details on our Event Page and join us for one or all of them if you can.
