Give veterans a fighting chance.
Since 9/11, the growth in support for veterans has more than quadrupled. More than 50,000 organizations across the country are trying to meet the needs of our veterans. Despite a large number of operating organizations that support veterans, their demands have not been met.
Currently, there are more than 20 million veterans in the United States. As of January 2020, a Department of Labor report shows a veteran unemployment rate of 3.1%, which is a staggering 620,000 veterans.
While the Veterans Administration provides many educational benefits for veterans, the system is very complicated for many veterans who are looking to receive their benefits.
To solve this problem we engaged the Veterans Administration along with local vocational schools and colleges who offer certification programs. By doing this we have uniquely positioned our foundation to fill the needs of veterans who fall through the cracks and the VA cannot assist.
