Meet our staff
Fletcher Johnson is the Program Director here at Liberation Veteran Services. He has been with LVS for six years. Fletcher is a graduate of Randolph Macon College with a degree in Sociology. Helping people has always been his passion. Fletcher also taught school for 26 years helping young people reach their educational goals which made an easy transition to help Veterans who had fallen on hard times restore their lives. His personal mission of helping people drives him in his efforts to help Veterans. Watching them come into LVS with substantial problems, working with them, and watching them leave with permanent housing gives Fletcher complete satisfaction.
“The support we give our clients while in our facility and after they move to permanent housing is amazing. I LOVE coming to work every day knowing I am making a difference in the lives of other individuals. I am part of a great and caring organization!! I will always be grateful for this opportunity!!”
