Giving Back

Nelson’s dedication to helping fellow veterans led him to create Heroes 2 Work, a program which provides employment to veterans of the United States Armed Forces.  The program began within a transportation Fortune 100 company.  There was a need to provide top security in a strategic Category X airport.  By utilizing fellow veterans, NSI introduced Heroes 2 Work, securing top talent to enforce security.

His compassion and Puerto Rican-American heritage motivated him to organize an operations team dedicated to the Puerto Rico relief effort.  Assembling a group of current and former military personnel, concerned citizens, and members of his own family, they took generators, food, and other necessities that were desperately needed at the time. They also helped with rescue efforts and provided some security to assure that the relief went to the people in need.

Nelson has also dedicated time, services, and support to Caring of Our Children Foundation, Shelter from the Storm Foundation, and other organizations.
