I honestly don’t think many people realize the challenges women veteran face. Everyone focuses on the probems but very few focus on solutions to support women veterans. Support for women veteranas and for women veterans organizations is extremely hard to come by an this is whay we are thrilled to have the support of DVNF. Women Veterans Interactive is grateful for the $11,000 grant received from the DVNF for our Women Warrior Health and Wellness Program. As the President of Women Veterans Interactive, I commend DVNF for leading the way in supporting the women who have served an sacrificed for our country. Thanks DVNF

The excellence of the team at the Disabled Veterans National Foundation speaks to the caliber of the work that this organization does on behalf of our veterans. They maintain a resource database to help the veteran navigate available services and resources which can be quite complex. They also partner with the non-profit community of veteran service providers to support a network of services and programs designed to provide assistance and enable healing. Our organization, Healing Warriors Program, is one of those Veteran-services nonprofits, and was recently awarded a grant from the Disabled Veterans National Foundation. This grant will enable us to provide much-needed non-narcotic care for our service members with pain and Post Traumatic Stress. This has been life-changing for many of our service members. Thank you for walking the talk.

We are honored to be part of the Disabled Veterans National Foundation mission to support those veterans who might otherwise go without critical services. Since 2012, Veterans Healing Veterans from the Inside Out has brought tools and opportunities for healing to veterans incarcerated in the California state prison system. Now, generous support from DVNF allows us to expand this work to serve those who are returning from prison, or at risk for involvement with the criminal justice system. We deeply appreciate DVNF's efforts to leave no service member behind.

This outstanding organization is passionately committed to serving disabled veterans by supporting the program efforts of non-profit organizations around the country. They are truly collaborative, and we at English River Outfitters are proud to be their partner.

We were recently honored with a $10,000 grant to support our healing retreats for disabled veterans. This funding will directly impact the number of veterans we are able to serve in our special events and skill-building programs. By partnering with organizations like ours, the DVNF proves their extraordinary commitment to improving the lives of our nation's heroes in need, and we are truly grateful.

"Brain Injury Services of Southwest Virginia is deeply appreciative of DVNF's dedication and service to our nation's veterans. By providing an $8,000 grant to our online Community Living Connection (CLiC) for Veterans program, DVNF is providing Virginia veteran survivors of brain injury the opportunity to relearn critical cognitive and life skills, as well as the opportunity to bridge the gap between their needs and available veteran resources. Most importantly, by supporting CLiC for Veterans, DVNF is enabling Virginia veterans to visualize and access a brighter future.

We have found our interactions with DVNF to be very professional and courteous; the grant process has been very well planned and organized. As we progressed through different levels of consideration for this grant, it was clear that DVNF is carefully discerning which organizations it is supporting. We are proud that we were chosen for inclusion in the DVNF family, and look forward to helping Virginia veteran survivors of brain injury with DVNF's support this year!"

As the executive director of a small nonprofit that helps veterans heal with holistic therapies, I can honestly say that we wouldn't be able to support our local veterans without organizations like DVNF. We were recently awarded a $10,000 grant to support our work of providing veterans in the Asheville, NC area with high quality, affordable holistic therapies like acupuncture, massage, counseling, Reiki, chiropractic and more. The staff at DVNF have been great to work with. They respond quickly to emails and phone calls, and I feel they went out of their way to help us at every step of the grant process. And, the grant application process was extensive. They work hard to ensure that the organizations they support with grant funds are deserving of their support and that the organizations are helping improve the quality of life of our veterans.

I have read the reviews here, and I understand that people are frustrated by poor marketing choices, like fundraising items that are made in China. While I understand this frustration, it doesn't negate the fact that this organization is truly working hard to improve veterans' lives.

Thank you, DVNF, from the bottom of my heart. Helios Warriors is thrilled to receive a grant of $10,000 to help our local veterans heal from the physical, emotional and spiritual traumas of their military service.

I have read the comments and am not sure how my experience is so different! I found them to be a great organization that is committed to serving Veterans. Each time I called, Deborah O, took my call and was so very helpful! Any questions I had about the granting process was answered with patience and sincerity. I felt they truly wanted to help me get funding for my program and I did. I am honored and elated to be a recipient of DVNF funding. The packet they sent was no different from packets from other funders. I found it a breath of fresh air actually; given, it was not over the top in comparison to others. Thank you DVNF for all the work you do! Keep serving and I look forward to a long lasting partnership!

This charity run by a family of scammers is total bullshit. They do nothing but collect millions and hand out M&Ms to our brave soldiers.

They should be run out of town. Or jailed.

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

Toss them out, put them in prison.
