About RTW Veteran Center
We began this journey in February of 2011 when we discovered there were people living at our door steps who were physically hungry and struggled with the basic needs of humanity. That we were living in one of the most violent neighborhoods in the greatest country on earth, and that all around us was not the American Dream that we had fought for but an American nightmare that has become the reality in many of our urban cities.
