PWC's Ramp It Up For Veterans Campaign

PWC kicked-off the agency’s 8th annual campaign on September 11th, Patriot Day, to assist low-income veterans and/or veterans living with disabilities throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. In the previous four years, PWC has provided services for over 3,000 households of veterans or their surviving spouse.

PWC is committed to this program because the need continues to escalate with the aging demographics of the veterans throughout our local communities as evidenced below:
