Target demographics: In an era tested by the challenges of war, the DAV Charitable Service Trust looks in new directions as it builds on a proud record of compassion for America’s disabled heroes. 



The Trust’s directors know demand for assistance will only grow, driven by two factors.  First, more young veterans will return from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq injured and sick, and we must be prepared to help them in whatever ways are necessary.  Second, we cannot lose sight of the needs of the veterans of past generations who also defended our freedom and needs us today.



Our challenges are enormous.  We’re confident in the Trust’s ability to meet the changing, growing needs all of our disabled veterans will face.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Thousands

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Through DAV’s Voluntary Service Program dedicated volunteers drive sick and disabled veterans to and from VA medical facilities for treatment.

Programs: Programs supported by the Trust focus on several groups of physically and psychologically disabled veterans. Key programs include:
*Helping to maintain a volunteer-operated
transportation network providing rides to sick and
disabled veterans who need transportation to and
from VA medical centers for treatment;
*Providing food and shelter to homeless and needy
veterans, connecting to essential medical care, VA
benefits counseling, and job training;
*Meeting the special needs of veterans faced with
such specific disabilities as blindness, traumatic
brain injuries, post-traumatic stress, and amputation;
*Supporting significant therapeutic initiatives;
*Supporting physical and psychological rehabilitation
projects aimed at some of America’s most profoundly
disabled veterans;
*Bringing hope to the forgotten and suffering families
of disabled veterans.

Mission:

To carry out this responsibility, the Charitable Service Trust supports physical and psychological rehabilitation programs, meets the special needs of profoundly disabled veterans with such specific disabilities such as amputation and blindness, and aids and shelters homeless veterans.
