Penn State alumna’s nonprofit harbors homeless veterans

February 07, 2017

MEDIA, Pa. — After earning her bachelor's degree in human development and family studies from the Brandywine campus, Penn State alumna Cara Colantuono went on to start Support Homeless Veterans (SHV) — a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending homelessness among U.S. veterans in the Philadelphia region.

“I believe that our veterans are the heart and soul of this nation,” Colantuono said. “Thanking veterans for their service isn’t enough. We can’t expect men and women who have spent years in military systems to simply adjust to civilian life — it’s really up to our communities to care for them.”
