Norman McFarlane, Esq, President

I joined the VCHC Board of Directors as it is only fitting that our homeless neighbors shall have a safe home to lay their heads. My service is an expression of my walk of faith; to love thy neighbor as thy self and to do unto others as they would do unto me.  Homelessness is unacceptable, so I urge you to join with us today by volunteering your time or by making a financial gift and most importantly pray for the success of VCHC.  Your gift and prayers will make a difference and will be honored beyond measure.

Why I am on the VCHC board...

Tom Ratsep, Treasurer

Vice President at Glens Falls National Bank & Trust Company

I have served VCHC since 2006 as Director and Treasurer.  Initially, I joined the Board to help support homeless veterans in the Capital Region.  Over the years VCHC has grown to provide numerous housing and support services to veterans as well as low-to-moderate income households in the area.  VCHC continues to grow and expand its helping hand, which I'm very proud to be part of.  None of this could be done without the dedicated VCHC staff and financial support from organizations, businesses and individuals in communities served. 

Nicole Sheeler, Secretary

RetinaLink LLC Founder & Retina Strategist

I’m on the VCHC Board because I feel strongly about our veterans. They served our country to ensure our freedom each and every day. 

Phillip Oswald

Attorney, Rupp Baase Pfalzgraf & Cunningham LLC

I am a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps who served as an infantryman in Iraq and Afghanistan.  After leaving the service, I worked as a litigation attorney representing individual and institutional clients before state and federal courts.  I joined the Board because I want to assist in ensuring that our local veterans and their families have adequate housing.

As an ex-wife of a Viet Nam Veteran, I watched a good man die inside.  His children and I suffered dearly, but not as much as their father suffered. Being on the Board appears to help the healing process not only for myself and my children, but for those men and woman who paid a dear price for our freedom, only to be treated unfairly.
