New York – HELP USA, a national homeless services non-profit with a large focus on serving survivors of domestic violence, honored Vice President Joe Biden and four other civic leaders at the organization’s annual Scholarship Awards Luncheon on Thursday. This year, HELP USA awarded 30 scholarships in honor of the organization’s 30th anniversary. Governor Andrew Cuomo presented Vice President Biden with the HELP HERO Humanitarian Award. The award recognizes Vice President Biden’s outstanding service to veterans and their families, and his long record of support for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, including the landmark Violence Against Women’s Act of 1994 and creating the first ever White House Advisor on Violence Against Women. “The American people will forever be indebted to Vice President Joe Biden for his decades of leadership and countless contributions to our nation,” Governor Cuomo said.
