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.

In addition, many individuals volunteer to assist at VA facilities across the country.

Geographic areas served: Nationwide

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:
The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Charitable Service Trust is dedicated to one, single purpose: building better lives for our nation’s disabled veterans and their families. 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.

I agree 100% with rose jones. I donated monies so I could get address labels. But the offers for more donations kept pouring in before I had a chance to use my address labels, so I could order more.

I have never seen a DAV advertisement. Ever. I think the lady is confused with another charity. Our DAV privides rides to various clinics/hospitals, and without it, a lot of people would be in a world of hurt. Also our service officers are outstanding. There are a lot of rip off organizations ... more »
