Review for Minnesota Assistance Council For Veterans, St. Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Despite a challenging financial environment, MACV continues assisting vets facing crises. If the vets is homeless, they provide both transitional and permanent housing; if the vet has a home but is at risk of losing it, they provide financial support and planning assistance to stabilize the situation; if the vet needs a job, they provide a program to ensure one is found; if counseling, legal advice, or medical help is needed, they direct the vet to those who can help. Hundreds of vets are helped this way each year in Minnesota resulting in them becoming independent and productive members of the community.

Review for Minnesota Assistance Council For Veterans, St. Paul, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served on the MACV board for 13 years. Thousands of veterans in Minnesota have been helped deals with homelessness or other crises. Whether it was covering the rent for a few months, providing housing and food as needed, job training, or other forms of aid, MACV was always there. If a service could better be provided elsewhere, MACV helps make the necessary connections. They have received awards as the best nonprofit helping vets in the country and from the governor for most effective use of grant dollars.
