Darryl Vincent sees it every day in the faces of the homeless veterans who come through the doors of the shelters run by the U.S. Veterans Initiative. They need both professional help and moral support, and the ones best equipped to give them the latter are other veterans.
Vincent, 44, is a single dad who has to dart around Ewa to be a part of his two sons' schooling, athletics and other activities, but it's clear that heading the Hawaii office of the initiative, better known as U.S. VETS, is a consuming occupation. He has been with the agency for a decade, but last year was named chief operating officer of the three Oahu shelters. His years with the Marine Corps did not include combat duty, but the military experience gives him an affinity for some of what the clients are going through, if not the post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The newest addition in the U.S. VETS operation is the women's shelter that opened in conjunction with the Fernhurst YWCA. The organization works with the Veterans Administration on treatment, delivers other counseling, referral and job-training services to veterans, and partners with agencies that manage the housing.
For example, three former Navy barracks in Kalaeloa, where Vincent has his office, were converted to apartments and are run by the realty firm Cloudbreak Hawaii. At Waianae Community Center is a shelter accommodating families - most of them civilian - but that facility also provides employment to Vincent's vets.
Vincent is pleased to see other steps being taken to support war veterans. Some of his clients are also benefiting from the state's creation of a new veterans treatment court for those convicted of lesser crimes. The court pairs the vet with that moral support they need, he said.
"They're getting not a social worker, not somebody at the VA, or myself," he said.

In the News: Chief Operating Officer, Darryl Vincent, and His Fight to End Homelessness Amongst Veterans
ABC News recently featured U.S.VETS Chief Operating Officer Darryl Vincent and his work with homeless veterans in Hawaii on their Second Tour segment. Darryl provided personal context to his work furthering the mission of U.S.VETS mission and services it offers by sharing his experiences as a Marine himself, and the challenges he faced when he first moved to Hawai'i. "We were always taught to give back to the community, so I never grew up thinking I'd be a social worker but it ended up being that way once I saw the gratification that came from it and also seeing it provided me a sense of fulfillment."
Darryl has always had one mission in mind - to get homeless veterans off the street. In his 10 years at U.S.VETS, he has opened amazing doors to new partnerships, secured more funding, and opened new sites. U.S.VETS is thankful for his exceptional, visionary leadership, for the lives he has changed, and for the future leaders he mentors.
