I have been privileged to have been an active volunteer with CVC since 2013 and have enjoyed every minute of doing so. This organization is all for the betterment of Combat Vets, and our Director and CEO, David Booth, is dedicated to giving 90% or more of the fundraising intakes to them! The creative fund-raising events have been heavily attended and FUN! It was a pleasure for me to help organize a CVC Volunteers Social Club meeting once a month giving us an opportunity to know and relate to our fellow volunteers--and to meet the guests each one of us try to bring to these meetings as prospective volunteers-- enabling CVC to recruit many new Volunteers from this. The Vets also may attend the meetings--and they do! The Volunteers are all dedicated to helping our Vets fit back into society as they dreamed they would! Those Vets with children have aquired extra sets of Grandparents for them--some of the Volunteers, of course! In my many, many years of being a Volunteer, this organization--by far--has been the most meaningful! Helen Feeney
CVC is an amazing organization that addresses the total needs of the veteran and his/her family. It is a hand up not a hand out. Each vet is held accountable for his or her success as they are guided and assisted. Any and all aspects of needs are covered...whether it be housing, education, financial, medical, jobs, transportation, furniture, resume writing, balancing a check book...if it is needed, CVC will find a way to assist. Approximately 94% of every dollar collected goes in support of the veteran's needs. It is an organization that is headed by a veteran who has made it a personal goal to assist the post 9/11 veteran whenever, wherever possible...David Booth and his fantastic volunteer organization works hard every day to assist with the needs of today's veterans. Unfortunately, there are not enough resources to assist every veteran that has a need...get involved and help in any way...TODAY.
I have met today's Combat Vets and the problems they encounter post military, and there is no doubt that we have to do everything we can to help them find meaningful employment, housing, and proper medical care from the VA. Freedom is NOT free. BTW, Choose Your Role is annoying in that we can be participating in multiple ways. I've donated and I'm a general member (whatever in the world Of the Public means.
I have been involved with CVC since 2013. It was started and operates from the heart not the pocketbook which helps secure it's long term success. They have established excellent local and countrywide recognition and have partnered with other successful organizations. I am honored to be involved with such a organization.
Combat Veterans to Careers is exactly that - they take our wonderful veterans who need a hand up and give them that - not just a hand out. We started as volunteers but work happened and now we are confined to donors. I can not say enough good about David Booth and his staff and his volunteers. They all give from the heart.
I've worked directly with David Booth and Combat Veterans to Careers for more than 2 years, and continue to hear incredible stories of how they are helping our combat veterans and their families return transition to a fulfilling civilian life. Their services are desperately needed, and Combat Veterans to Careers continues to flourish in the community (and beyond) to provide as much support as possible - from education and job training, to housing and health assistance. This is one of the most honest and trustworthy nonprofits I'm aware of, and I so appreciate their service to our combat veterans and their families.
We have been helping Combat Veterans to Careers for many years because they are helping veterans and not themselves like some other organizations. It is alway a pleasure to help with events and hear the results from the veterans directly.
I have been with this organization for 4 years now and I have seen the help this organization gives to our veterans. It has helped hundreds of families. In the last month we have had 2 families purchase their own homes. Before they came to CVC their credit was awful and neither veteran or spouse had jobs. CVC was able to guide them through purchasing a home. We also have had veterans in school for fire fighting and police. 4 of them are now working at their dream job. David Booth the CEO is non-stop helping veterans. His whole life is devoted to them. CVC has a wonderful group of volunteers who are dedicated to this organization
Great volunteers that are dedicated to helping our veterans. 92 cents of every dollar goes directly to our veterans and their Families.
My first born son is a combat veteran and this organization is helping him. It is an answer to my prayers.
