It's been awful. The executive director has never served in military and they attack veterans and charities that they don't agree with on social media and in community. The posts on FB attacking other charities are rude and unprofessional and driven by the Executive Director Kim Cone. From WWP to housing for veterans they use social media to share distain for other programs in community and country...Why attack others helping veterans if you never served as the executive director ? They also copy others missions and programs in community with $$ being top focus. Its a local kinda thinking and they are not about vets but about how they look good and donations.
AVET Project helped my dad, a Korean and Vietnam War veteran, with his VA Agent Orange claim and paperwork and they have been instrumental in helping my little brother, a Desert Shield/Storm veteran, navigate his way through the VA process and his personal PTSD journey over the past 2 1/2 years. The men and women at AVET are incredible, diligent, professional, caring and compassionate and a God-send to military veterans trying to navigate the myriad programs and agencies to get the help they earned and deserve!
I am a disabled vet that has been ignored and pushed around by the VA. AVET has helped me by getting the right veteran lawyers and veterans advocates that has helped me tremendously and have gotten me the help ive long needed. Now i own my own businesses and it has grown tremendously thanks to the help of the AVET project. Today i volunteer with them as a thanks for helping me. We just volunteered and help feed 120 soldiers at the Melbourne National Guard . And they do all this for free.
My name is Charlie and i am a disabled vet of OEF. While in the National Guard the AVET project would not only donate time, but they made the best breakfast....lol. The organization was there for the soldiers and always gave a tentative ear. I personally had a few issues with the VA and my claims. The AVET project was there at a minutes notice to listen and help. They put me in touch with the right people who could help me. And best of all........for free. AVET project would always find the correct resources, and never quit if they couldn't. For some odd reason i could not get help from any other nonprofit organization who supposedly are there for the troops. AVET project have always been there for me at no cost. Thank you AVET project.
Avet is an amazing organization that goes above and beyond the call of duty. They are on 24/7 helping all in need. They work together with people in all areas of military but also help those not in as well. They truly appreciate their volunteers and work with business and people who support them. Thank you AVET
Our Daughter of the American Revolution Chapter, here in Melbourne Beach Florida, is always on the look out to help our Active Duty and Local Veterans. AVET Project is our GO To organization. They have the knowledge of where to direct our VETS to services that are available to them. They are the BEST for planning local events to honor our Active Duty, no matter what their branch of service is. We look forward to jumping in the help in anyway we can. A truly SPECIAL organization. We here in Brevard County Florida are so fortunate to have a LOCAL group to be a part of. Thanks Kim and Garren Cone for your tireless efforts to make a difference in our community-
Garren and Kim Cone of AVET organization work tirelessly to support our veterans and active duty personnel in Brevard county. I have known them for several years and the amount of energy they expend in support of the Military and all veterans continually amazes me.
This organization and I have had a professional relationship for over a year now. I am a lead Key Spouse mentor for Patrick AFB. I support active duty and their family members. This organization had been amazing. They have never said no to anyone that had asked their assistance. This is truly a rare quality now days.
AVET Project is like no other. They truly give everything they have in an effort to support the military, veterans, and their family members. On several occasions they have given to me and my family (recognition at hockey games, tickets to basketball games, donated athletic gear for my kids) as a show of support to military members serving in uniform. They believe in what they do. They live it. And they will give you the shirt off their back in order to make sure a military member is taken care of.
I seriously have not ever experienced a non-profit as committed and passionate about what they do.
Wonderful supporter for our Veterans and their families.
They also support local schools in their community !
AVET Project, Inc. is a steadfast supporter of military men and women and veterans in our area. The services they provide are as varied as the people they help. From care packages to overseas, to "lobbying" our representatives to pass the bill so they can send care packages overseas, to benefits consolations, to get aways for needed veterans, to, to to, the list is endless.
AVET serves as the hub to many service providers in the community willing to assist veterans and current military personnel.
I support and will continue to support AVET in the work they do.
