On Tuesday, July 11, 2017, HELP USA Chairman Maria Cuomo Cole was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award by City & State NY for her years of dedicated service to our nation’s veterans.

“I’ve had many privileged opportunities to spend time with veterans, but this is the first time I’m actually being recognized among them,” she said during the awards ceremony. “So I’m truly humbled and very, very appreciative – and really accepting this honor on behalf of HELP USA and the talented, dedicated team that I’m privileged to work with.”

Under her leadership, HELP USA has provided thousands of veterans with safe, dignified homes through our permanent housing and homeless prevention programs. Click here to read her earlier interview with City & State.
