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 volunteers with a common goal: providing support and assistance to struggling veterans and their families throughout Florida, Georgia and Alabama. Together, we work each day to collect donations so that we can provide assistance to veterans and their families.

It isn’t necessary to BE a veteran to HELP one. All it takes is a kind heart and a willingness to help make their lives better. 

“Together, we can make a difference in the lives of our brave veterans and their families. Help us help them.”

Why Help Veterans

separater

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.

Unemployment

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.

Misplacement

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 victim to drug and alcohol abuse.

PTSD

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.
