Lenora James has always loved working with people and helping others in her daily and professional life. When the opportunity came for Lenora to consider the Project VetRelief program through the American Legion, it felt like a natural fit.  As a Navy wife and Coast Guard mother, Lenora recognizes the importance of support programs for military servicemembers as they make lifestyle transitions throughout their life.  Her family has had to experience many transitions and had to move several times.

Lenora received her Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology from the College of Charleston and her Master of Science in Communication and Information Management from BayPath University. She spent more than 25 years in the insurance industry but has made the decision to return to social services where her heart is desired.

Lenora’s years of business experience along with her willingness to research and support veterans will be an asset for our organization. Her role as a Veterans Case Worker will be to process emergency support requests for financial assistance for Florida’s veterans and their families.
