In a Miraculous Reversal of Fortune, Veterans Moving Help’s Founder Gregory Sledge goes from Being a Homeless Veteran to Owning Business that is Now Hiring Veterans Veterans Moving Help consists of US Military Veterans who provide loading and unloading services for customers with rental trucks or containers. The Movers provide nationwide moving labor services. “Without the support of the Veterans Administration, none of this would be possible. They were genuinely concerned and provided timely assistance and programs that have been instrumental in my success” says Mr. Sledge. He expresses gratitude to the Veterans Administration’s transitional housing program that gave him a place to live after the downsizing of his company forced him into homelessness. Homeless Veterans are provided a clean safe place to live while they rebuild their lives. Each Veteran is assigned a case Manager whom individually plots a course to help the Veteran regain his place in society. The department of Veterans Affairs also provided Mr. Sledge with business management training through its VRAP (Veterans Retraining Assistance Program). He was able to parlay the formal business training with his connections and experience in the moving labor industry to found Veterans Moving Help. The public has embraced Veterans Moving Help and they are now hiring! They are seeking U.S. military Veterans that are experienced Movers. These jobs consist of loading/unloading, packing/unpacking of rental trucks to include Budget, Penske and UHaul and moving trailers and containers such as ABF and PODS. Furniture moving experience is a must. Veterans Moving Help sincerely thanks President Barack Obama and First lady Michelle Obama for their tireless support of Veterans.

Help! Help! Help! I screamed! The roar of the trucks diesel engine drowned out my cries. I had fallen asleep in a Dumpster and awakened just as it was being emptied into the back of a garbage truck. Totally disoriented, I landed face first in the filthy muck. I spit something vile out my mouth. Before I could gather my wits, I was being propelled forward towards the deadly whining of the trucks compactor. I was about to be crushed to death in back of a stinking garbage truck! Earlier that day, I had donated blood plasma. The donation was my...

From Homeless Vet to hiring Vets!

Posted by on in Jobs For Veterans
A single day's work can be transformative for any Veteran, especially one fighting his way back from homelessness and addiction. I know this because I am a Veteran and was once in need of not only a well-paying job but a safe place to live. I got both with help from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and formed my company, Veterans Moving Help, to provide the dignity of work to other Veterans. My journey wasn't easy. I'd been in the U.S. Army and benefited from its strong support system. When I returned home in 1987, I lost that...

Veterans Moving Help was honored this week to be called upon to move former Tuskegee Airman Stephen Lawrence and his wife Virginia to The Atrium in Gainesville Florida. The Lawrences were downsizing and selling their home and chose the Atrium( a holiday retirement community) because of its wonderful staff, beautiful building and amenities. Even at age 90, Mr. Lawrence proved to be a capable Mover, lifting items despite our insistence that he relax. A little background:   The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American Air Force pilots to serve in World War II. At 90,  Sgt. Stephen Lawrence recalls with great...

The homeless camp called Tent City has been vacated after the city of Gainesville, Florida evicted its occupants. However the residents left a lot behind, including tents, clothes, bottles and miscellaneous trash that make the once beautiful wooded area look like a dump site.

 The Weekend Hunger Backpack Program was designed to supplement meals for children, who depend on their school for breakfast and lunch, during the school week. The program identifies chronically hungry children who are in need of nutritional assistance over the weekend. Volunteers fill the backpacks during the week to be taken home on Friday with enough food for the child and their siblings for the weekend. In Alachua County, one in four children don’t have enough food to eat each day. Lack of access to a nutritious and adequate food supply has implications not only for the development of physical...
