The CAN platform has totally changed the way we provide assistance to our assistance seekers. The abundance of functionality and features truly makes this a one-stop-shop for our organizational and software needs. To name a few, we are able to utilize the systems ADA/HIPAA/WCAG compliance features for protected document sharing & emails, we are directly connected to candidates based on the compatibility of our services offered compared to the needs of the candidate, and we are also able to pull reports for any and all work done through the CAN for grant, funding, internal and all other purposes. Utilizing the senior admin feature we can add additional users that have as much or as little access and visibility to certain features, as well as documents, as we see fit based on their role in the organization. This not only serves as a safety/protection feature, but also keeps individuals on track based on the focus of their role and scope of their work. The CAN team is friendly, responsive and quick to act when help is needed in the system. Lastly, the CAN team welcomes insight on how the system is working for us and actively listens to our recommendations for the system which is something we didn't receive with previous softwares that we have used. There have even been times where our recommendations have been implemented into the system as they knew it was something we needed that would also benefit other non-profit organizations too. This software far exceeds our expectations and we would recommend it to any other organization that needs more than what their current software offers at a budget friendly price. With that said, do yourself and your organization a favor, and schedule a demo!

As a veteran centered non profit technology and a network to meet our needs have always been a top priority of our organization. Wading through all of the costly options that only partially gave us what we wanted the Coordinated Assistance Network was exactly what we needed. The network is fast and very compatible with our systems. Like all non profits funds are not readily available to spend on network systems. The Coordinated Assistance Network with its affordable price plan is a rising star in the field of non profits and meet those needs head on with it competitive pricing plan.

The way this platform continually evolves and listens to its users in order to provide new functionality as well as enhancements to existing functionality is unbelievable. Not many intake/file management providers are as nimble and oftentimes users of them are forced to find workarounds in order to achieve their needs. Being a non-profit as well, the Coordinated Assistance Network team really understands the importance of reporting needs and limited technology budgets of fellow non-profits resulting in a great tool (especially for those providing service to particular segments of the Veteran population.

I found the network to search for financial guidance because our family has nearly lost everything due to Covid. Not only was I able to work with a financial coach, I was able to speak with a housing counselor. I am thankful for the connections.

I work in Washington, DC with many non-profits and have been impressed with the work of Veterans Plus - both in hands-on assistance to individual veterans in need, and in outreach to legislators and policymakers. Few charities have the vision to do both well, especially with the limited resources that regrettably afflict the entire non-profit community.

As a volunteer for VeteransPlus I have enjoyed the opportunity to work with the men and women who have given so much to our nation. The financial education VeteransPlus provides is so important to helping theses returning warriors navigate back into civilian life. While there are many organizations providing assistance to service members, Veterans and their families, I believe the financial education that VeteransPlus provides helps to reduce the need for assistance.

The counselors at VeteransPlus were able to help me understand how to save, establish a budget and get me headed in the right direction with my financial future. I only wish I would have contacted them earlier. Because the counselors are Veterans themselves, they understand the issues and challenges Veterans face when it comes to managing finances. I was a pleasure talking to someone that didn't make me feel stupid about some of the mistakes I have made regarding my finances. I know other Veterans who have paid for counseling and didn't get the help I got for free.

I help people learn how to improve their financial understanding and literacy and Veterans Plus does an outstanding job improving the quality of life of the military members that it serves by boosting their financial literacy. Veterans Plus does a great job at individual counseling and also puts on various events where military families can learn how to manage their money better. They also bring in other reputable non-profit partners to help people in the military understand their financial options. What Veterans Plus does is extremely valuable and indispensable!

VeteransPlus is simply the best at what they do. We partnered with them because they have the most experience in providing financial education and counseling to the military community. Veterans often deal with very specific issues, and the counselors for VeteransPlus understand these issues and know how best to deal with them. Our foundation creates a stronger impact through our partnership with VeteransPlus, and we're confident the veterans we serve are better off in the long term.

My company has partnered with Veterans Plus for nearly 6 months. We chose to align with this organization because of their commitment to provide meaningful, tangible expertise ("financial acumen") to those in need who have served our country. The education and insight that Veterans Plus provides to their clients is extraordinary, and this counseling enables families to make significantly better financial decisions not only today, but also longer term.

This organization helps every veteran - does not matter if they are wounded warriors, "weekend" warriors or whatever status. They do their research when addressing military-specific needs and they really care about the welfare of our troops. Even when developing the online system, they were always keeping ease of use at the top of the list for our vets to make their lives easier. Kudos to entire VeteransPlus team!

The concept of Veterans Plus is tremendous. Giving back to veterans is what its all about. As we all should agree, they deserve all the help/guidance/education that they can obtain. I have had the privlidge of assisting a few referred clients from Veterans Plus and wasd all too honored to help. I personally back VPI and everything they stand for in relation to helping Veterans lead a better life.
