THE VETERANS SUPPORT ORGANIZATION
July 5, 2010

I saw the group first in FL then they showed up in NY in my area. I started doing research. I cntacted the VA Vol Service Division in Miami, then in NYC. They both gave them A Plus. Then I started loking at the web. Very mixed reviews. I have worked with non-profit groups for years in substance abuse and am seeing more and more vets. We need lots of help in serving that population. I ultimately contacted the group for a grant for a vet needing financial assistance in housing post treatment. They came through in 3 days with a check for this vet. No other group I called gave one penny and most did not even call back.

The Great!

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

Helping out a client graduating our drug rehab.

Ways to make it better...

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

Have them hire someone to do PR with other groups to stop all the mud slinging.

More feedback

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

Them giving back money to vets graduating our Drug Program.

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

Helpfull

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

Change our ability to house Vets after treatment.

Ways to make it better...

I could get a central contct for the group nationally.

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

Other groups slinging mud.

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

I hope they reduce cost so they can give more back to programs.
