I was involved with them in FLA running a homeless sober shelter fof them. I have seen what they do. They save veterans lives.I have never seen another group do as much for the veterans lives they help. I do not understand all the 990 stuff, but I saw how they cared and saved over a dozens vets lives ready to kill themselves. What is the value of that?

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

They really change lives not just have dinners or open bar night at the clubhouse.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Honest, realistic and committed to the cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the number of homeless and unemployed vets in our cities.

Ways to make it better...

Other groups supportive of Veterans worked together instead of creating turf wars.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Other veterans groups nervous about how much this group gives back.

One thing I'd also say is that...

They did what they say they do, change veterans lives.

This organization set up a table at a local grocery store to receive donations. I spent time researching their 990 tax return and spoke with the countywide Dept. of Veterans Affairs Health Care for Homeless Veterans officers. The VA has no contact with the non-profit and they have not provided any service to any veterans or veterans organization that anyone is aware of. Their 990 shows they collected over 1 million dollars but only 90,000 actally went to veterans in need. The rest was for subcontractors, fundraising expenses and board member expenses. That is 9 cents on the dollar and unexceptable behavior for an agency who professes to help veterans.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reviewing their 990 tax return.

Ways to make it better...

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

actually help veterans in need with the funds that are donated.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

nothing.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

acting as if they were veterans but I have my doubts about that. I believe they are paid subcontractors.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

line the pockets of too many unworthy individuals.

Ways to make it better...

they spent donations on veterans.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the board members are just out to put money in their pockets.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization discredits non-profits that actally work to make a difference in the lives of veterans.
