VetDay eBlast2015 Dana CROPDana H. is a veteran of the United States Navy and a member of Step Up.

In a recent interview, Dana said, “If anyone would have told me nine years ago that I would be homeless at the age of 51, I would have responded, ‘No Way! I have a good job, a place to live and nice life.  I am a responsible person!  It will never happen to me!’”

At that time Dana was a Drug and Alcohol Counselor, working for a treatment and recovery center. She passionately believed in helping alcoholics and drug addicts get clean and sober because of her own experience with drug addiction when she was younger.
