Rebuilding After Disaster: A Veteran's Journey to Stability After Home Flood



In times of crisis, reaching out for help can be a lifeline for those in need. Recently, a Permian veteran faced unexpected hardship when her apartment was flooded due to a fire in her building. Despite being displaced and experiencing damage to her belongings, including crucial items for her and her daughters, she knew she couldn't face this challenge alone. Turning to Permian Warrior Partnership (PWP) for support, this veteran took the first step in seeking assistance during a difficult time.


Beth O’Hanlon* is a Navy Veteran of nine years (' 13-'22) who recently transitioned out of the service. For Beth, the journey to recovery began with contacting PWP for support. While the devastation of the fire and subsequent flooding threatened to overwhelm her, she refused to let despair take hold.


With the support of PWP Case Coordinator Breanna Durner, the veteran found hope in the form of donated furniture acquired for her by PWP from the local community. The PWP Team had furniture that was previously donated and coordinated a pick-up for Beth once she moved into her new apartment. This small gesture of kindness offered practical assistance and a sense of community and solidarity in her time of need. We will continue to keep a line of communication with Beth to ensure her needs are met.
