July Volunteer of the Month


For more than seven years, he has worked to help service members, veterans, Gold Star families and more get back on their feet.

Steven Kaplan is a volunteer from New York City, and devotes a lot of his time toward supporting veterans and assisting Hope For The Warriors in our mission. For the month of July, we are pleased to award him as our volunteer of the month.

Kaplan works full-time as a Director of Vendor Relationships for GreatAmerica Financial Services, but in his free time, he uses his business experience to help transitioning veterans map their career goals. He voluntarily mentors individuals by providing veterans with resources to find jobs, interview preparation, resume building and finance management.

Kaplan’s clear and calm demeanor helps him act as a mentor to those who may need one during their transition toward a sustainable lifestyle. Always willing to lend a helping hand, Kaplan devotes ample time to each veteran he works with and always makes himself available when needed. This not only helps our staff do their job more effectively, but it helps us maintain our mission.

Thank you, Steven, for all your hard work and continuous support of the military community. Hope For The Warriors is grateful for all the time you’ve spent volunteering with us, and your devotion isn’t going unrecognized. Your passion and drive for helping others is amazing, thank you for helping us restore HOPE.
