The History of Cherokee Veterans Community
Cherokee Veterans Community started as a flicker of a dream that God placed into the heart of Timothy King (Tim). Tim, a ten year veteran in the U.S. Marine Corps felt the pressures of reintegration into civilian life and sought out help and guidance from both the VA and private civilian sector. With God's love and guidance and with the help and guidance from others, and through much prayer he was being called to start Cherokee Veterans Community that could positively affect many veteran’s lives and the lives of their family.
The Present of Cherokee Veterans Community
Today, Cherokee Veterans Community has grown into a ministry that includes not only helping with reintegration into civilian life but now includes many different missions to serve our entire military community. From Coffee with other Veterans gatherings, to sending our We/Care/Boxes to our deployed military, to offering our veteran students with RAVE scholarships for their reeducation, Cherokee Veterans Community is becoming more rounded, more inclusive and more effective in our mission to serve.
Visit us at any of our 1st Thursday our month meetups and meet other veterans who like you have said "Yes" so serve. Join them as together we can serve others in our community who have a need we might be able to fill.
