Mission: The National Veterans Foundation (NVF) was founded in 1985 to help veterans streamline the process of accessing help for the myriad of needs they face, and to help broaden public understanding of these needs--including crisis/PTSD counseling, medical treatment, legal aid, VA benefits assistance, food, shelter, education, employment training, homelessness services, and substance abuse treatment. The NVF operates the Nation's only live, toll-free crisis management, information, and referral helpline (1-888-777-4443; vetsupport@nvf.org) for all veterans and their families; coordinates Public Awareness Programs designed to increase awareness and understanding about the effects of war and human needs of Americas veterans; and conducts ongoing outreach programs that provide veterans and families in need with food, clothing, transportation, employment, and other essential resources.

CNN's story was about another non-profit that handled business the wrong way. Unfortunately the NVF was affiliated with them without knowing about the unethical ways. Since then the NVF has cut ties with this organization and successfully continues to help and support veterans needs.

Well clearly 1 or 2 comments does not make or break a foundation!
My research came by donating two weeks of my time, 4 hours per day 10;00 to 2:00, March 13th to March 31. This organization is one of the best there is, they have a huge data base that they use as a reference system, and are knowledgeable on where and how veterans can go to access services and benefits. They also have an out reach team that goes into the local Los Angeles community seeking out veterans that are clueless or homeless as to where they can go to get assistance. In my opinion they were the link that many veterans are missing, which enables them to a plethora of services and benefits that are available after ones active duty has been fulfilled. It is so unfortunate when a big news agency is allowed to report convoluted information nationwide, and then is allowed to retract the info locally or not at all.
So much for fair and un bias reporting. CNN = Fail

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would make the federal gov. copy and follow their mission.
