In observance of  Sept. 11, 2001, the Senior Companion program spent the afternoon at the Missouri Veteran’s Home, to honor the nation’s heroes. 

The Missouri Veteran’s Home provided a tour of the facility allowing senior companions opportunities to engage with veterans.

The legacy of service these military people provided for our nation takes on a deep meaning of accomplishment and dedication. By interacting with these heroes, hearing their stories and getting to know these veterans on a personal level, it allows opportunity for empowerment and conviction in the Senior Companion’s own journey as community leaders.
