Who We Are

Veterans In Need Foundation, (VIN), is a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt, Non-profit organization, founded in 2009. 

We are a dedicated and passionate team of veterans and civilian volunteers with a common goal: providing support and assistance to struggling veterans and their families.

Together, we work each day to collect donations so that we can provide assistance to the heroes of our nation!

WHY HELP VETERANS?

Studies done by the VA have revealed that as many as one in five of our homeless population has served in the United States military. This is unacceptable!

With over 22 million veterans living in the U.S. today, most are soldiers who have risked their lives in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Over the next five years, approximately one million more service members will be reentering civilian life. 

At Veterans In Need Foundation, we feel strongly about helping these brave veterans adjust to their new civilian lives.

This transition can often be difficult, but we strive each day to do our part in helping these heroes lead the lives they deserve.

 

LEADING TO HOMELESSNESS

  • Despite the efforts of the government, and other veterans assistance organizations, a portion of veterans still struggle when returning to civilian life. Unfortunately, many return from service only to face issues with unemployment and homelessness. As of 2016, there are over 453,000 unemployed veterans in the United States, that’s roughly 5% of all the brave men and women who have nobly served the U.S.

FEELING LIKE YOU DON’T FIT

  • Sadly, although not surprisingly, many veterans return from service feeling disconnected from society. This is typically a result of having spent years absent from civilian life in a highly-structured military environment. As a consequence, many veterans end up drifting without direction, and often fall towards drug and alcohol abuse.

NOT KNOWING HOW TO COPE

  • Due to the violent nature of war, veterans often suffer from mental disorders such as PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and depression. These disorders are worsened if coupled with economic hardships or family difficulties. If left unmanaged, families can disintegrate under the pressure.

 

VETERANS IN NEED FOUNDATION has accepted a mandate to intervene, rescuing as many veterans from defeated lives as possible. We consistently extend open hands and hearts to these deserving men and women who have sacrificed so much for our benefit to protect the freedoms we all enjoy. We invite the public to join with us in our crusade to recognize, honor and assist veterans in need everywhere.

 

OUR HISTORY

 

The Veterans in Need Foundation (VINF) was founded in 2009 by individuals with deep compassion towards the men and woman whom put their lives at risk for our freedom.

Historically, our attention has been focused on the needs of disabled veterans by providing emergency assistance. We have also provided a range of services, including food, clothing, transportation, utilities, and temporary housing assistance for our.

In all these ways we are attempting to create a positive impact in the lives of veterans everywhere. However we are constantly reminded that, without public support every step of the way, our best efforts are but a drop in the bucket. To achieve our goals it will take an ongoing collaboration of government agencies combined with public support to rescue our fallen heroes.
