Meet Our Veterans
Meet Tim Jacobs- Tim is a U.S. Navy veteran, a father, and a student. He's been around the world and came home to Rochester, where his transition and reintegration wasn't always 'smooth sailing.' Finding himself at VOC's Richards House residential program was a turning point for Tim. So much that he has now found his career direction thanks to the staff of Veterans Outreach Center's influence, and he's leading the veteran community to a brighter future through the power of higher education!
Veterans Outreach Center’s Battle Buddy Program
Sean Smith is our Mentoring Coordinator. He is a U.S. Army combat veteran with 16 years combined service of active duty and National Guard. Upon his return from multiple overseas deployments, Sean struggled with alcohol addiction and nearly lost everything. He sought assistance from Veterans Outreach Center and received the care he needed to get back on track. Sean returned to college and earned his degree in addictions counseling. His desire to give back landed him back at the Veterans Outreach Center assisting veterans and their families finding housing and employment. Sean still serves as an infantry platoon sergeant in the New York Army National Guard and is a 2014 graduate of the Army Ranger School. Through VOC’s Battle Buddy program, Sean seeks to provide the comradery and assistance that were so vital to him in his transition.
