LINDENWOLD, NJ Camden County Commissioner Melinda Kane joined officials from Lindenwold Borough and the Spectra Care Foundation for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Carlton R. Rouh Veterans Center in Lindenwold. The Center was created by the Spectra Care Foundation to be a safe place where veterans can go for mentoring and support, get help to get the services they need, and spend time in a warm and vibrant area.
“The Commissioners are extremely grateful for the Foundation’s efforts and the support of Camden County veterans,” Kane, a gold star mother and liaison to the Office of Veterans Affairs, said. “We know that veterans face incredible challenges when they return home and that making services accessible and available is critical. For veterans in Camden County and the Lindenwold area, this center will be an invaluable resource.”

LINDENWOLD, NJ (December 30, 2020)--In 2015 Michael and Kathleen Van Stine founded the SpectraCare® Foundation using Michael's $130,000 retirement fund to launch the project. The Foundation will help veterans (Veterans Assist), senior citizens (Seniors Advantage), and animals in need (Paws Plus).
"That retirement fund was every cent in our savings; today we both live on what we receive from Social Security," she said.
