Yale University’s “The Politic” Magazine features story on TAVF

Fishing for Solutions: Take a Vet Fishing Offers New Options for Veterans

“Just getting back out on the water and doing some fishing with great friends made it one of the best days of my life. Camaraderie is awesome, and these are all brothers and sisters of mine who would’ve had my back during war.”   – U.S. Navy Diver, Ret. & blind veteran Karl Yachulke of Bethel, CT

By EMILY JI   March 9, 2018
Emily Ji, writing for “The Politic” explores non-profit community partnership outreach for blind veterans with Take A Vet Fishing (TAVF); founded in CT in 2007 at the First Congregational Church of Branford. “TAVF is a perfect example of a partnership that helps vets; not in the traditional way of healthcare or assistance with home loans, but just providing that moral support and helping them integrate into the community,” according to Commissioner of the CT Department of Veteran Affairs, Thomas J. Saadi.
