I work at the VA Hospital in Atlanta. I have referred countless Veterans to the HonorBound Foundation (formerly National Veterans Services Fund). Where most organizations have very restrictive requirements that prevent my Vets from qualifying for help, HonorBound Foundation is much more flexible and willing to look at each individual situation before making a decision whether they will help or not. The staff are extremely easy to work with and the turn around receiving financial assistance for my Vets is extremely fast! This is essential when you are working with someone who is having a true financial emergency and needs help quick. To be honest, this is really the only national organization that I can depend on to help the Veterans I work with on a consistent basis. I don't have time to jump through the endless hoops that many other organizations require, only for my Veteran to still be denied in the end. I greatly appreciate the efforts of HonorBound Foundation and wish that they had more money to help even further!

I am a social worker and the HonorBound Foundation, Inc. has been an INVALUABLE resource for the veterans that I work with. I can not express the gratitude that I have for the prompt, professional, and courteous manner in which they provide assistance. I know that when I make an appropriate referral, the veteran WILL receive the help that they need . Thanks HonorBound for providing such compassionate service to those who have provided such sacrifice and service for all of us.

To all of those out there who care about veterans:
If you are looking for a highly honorable and helpful foundation to donate to:
Please consider HonorBound Foundation:
In the five years that I have been a Veterans Service Officer for Porter County, IN I have reached out to them for the veterans in need that I deal with on numerous occasions: each time they have come through for them.
One of the best things is that they are able to act so swiftly:
My latest example:
I filled out an application for a veteran who desperately needed some new clothes for interviews while he is out looking for employment.
This morning I find in my work email inbox an email that $300 in Walmart gift cards will be mailed out to him today.
This is Real Help; Real Fast!
HonorBound is truly honorable!!
Sincerely,
Paulina B. Huffman
Asst . Veterans Service Officer
Porter County, IN

As a Social Worker (VA Hospital), I face limitless obstacles when financial distress hit our Veteran. Loss of income, illness, hospitalization, exploitation are some of the many issues that our heroes experience that could trigger a financial crisis.

The HonorBound Foundation have said present and have been ready to "jump in" when I reach out seeking assistance for our Veteran. The application process is straight forward and their response is always prompt.

For that, Thanks you HonorBound Foundation, Inc.

Excellent program. I am a SSVF case worker with the Salvation Army and this company is extremely helpful for covering some of the gaps in helping veterans. Always quick to respond and very friendly.

I work for an SSVF program for Rapid Rehousing of Veterans and prevention to help them keep from loosing their homes. I have found HonorBound to be very helpful with deposits, utilities and encouragement, even if they can't help. Ms. Tosto and her board are treasures and always work quickly and efficiently to help our Veterans with often less then a twenty-four turn-around for approval. When a Veteran is looking at getting into a home or trying to save the home they are already in, this can mean a huge help. Thank you HonorBound!!

I am a resource specialist working with veterans and their families. Honorbound was able to help a veteran family obtain needed transportation to get to work and to much needed VA appointments. This assistance was provided by honorbound when other organizations were unable to assist.

I am so thankful to HonorBound Foundation for helping an Army Veteran who needed help with his car payment. He'd been working, but business was slow, less hours and finally was laidoff. He was juggling his funds to try and pay everyone that he could, but then just ran out. HBF paid his car payment (two months). Wow, what a relief for him!!! Thank You HBF, thank you all and especially to the donors of HonorBound Foundation!!! Randi

The service provided by HonorBound is outstanding! The referral process is easy and the turn-around time for responses is timely, which is extremely important to a person in need. As a service provider, I can truly say that this organization has made a difference in the lives of many of my clients, especially when they were up against the wall with nowhere else to turn. I have nothing but great things to say about this nonprofit. Keep up the great work!

As executive director of a 501c3 nonprofit, Veterans Residential Services of Wilson, it is wonderful to work with such a fantastic agency as HonorBound Foundation. They always are willing to help a deserving Veteran. I recently referred a Veteran who was trying to get her family back together after being apart for six months due to a relocation. They were so generous to help with the deposit for the utilities. Last Friday a female Veterans was together with her family for the first time in six months due to HonorBound helping with the final piece of the puzzlw. Thanks for helping us make this possible!

I work for a non-profit SSVF program in Gainesville, Florida. We work with HonorBound on a regular basis and they have really saved some of our veterans that are in emergency circumstances. They've helped prevent utilities from being shut off and they've also prevented veterans from becoming homeless as well as getting homeless veterans into housing. The turn around time from when a initial referral is sent out to when the situation is resolved is amazing. I have not had a single bad interaction with this organization and I'd highly recommend them to anyone that is assisting veterans.

I work for Endeavors, Inc. Our program is a rapid rehousing program for homeless veterans. The HonorBound Foundation has been instrumental in helping us achieve our mission. The partnership is invaluable. HonorBound is a blessing to all veterans in need of a hand up.

HonorBound Foundation always comes through for me when I am trying to get assistance for our veterans. Great communication and always a quick response. There are non-profits that are out there that say they assist veterans but rarely come through. HonorBound is not one of those, they say they help and they do. They are truly in the business of Helping those who have served.

HonorBound assisted a struggling, unemployed and recently homeless veteran restore his driver's license. This veteran has had a lot of trouble finding employment and has had minimal ability to get to job interviews because he did not have a current driver's license. After receiving assistance from the HonorBound foundation this veteran now has the opportunity to obtain employment near his home and also will have more doors open to him going forward. This will, in turn, assist this veteran with maintaining his current housing and deter the possibility of him becoming homeless again. HonorBound was extremely prompt with providing assistance once they received a referral for this veteran and ensured that the process for restoring his license was successful.

I am a social worker for the a VA Homeless Program in Kansas. This agency has been such a help to many Veterans, especially living in rural areas without access to any other assistance. There are many Veterans I work with who would be homeless right now if not for the assistance of HonorBound. Homelessness is scary enough but made worse by the fact that many I serve are of an advanced age and could not realistically manage in a shelter. Thank you to this amazing agency and all those who donate to such a great cause. Truthfully, I just would not be able to do my job without the help of this resource.

HonorBound is a phenomenal organization, dedicated to assisting veterans. I recently worked with them to assist two clients with utility bills. We were all amazed and very grateful that this organization was ready, willing and able to resolve issues they were facing. Words are not sufficient to express how much I appreciate Honor Bound for all they do.

I am a Social Worker at a local Veteran non profit in my area. I have had to request assistance from NVSF several times when we could not find local resources to help our Vets. When the Vets were eligible and the amounts were under the $500 requirement, NVSF always approved them to receive the assistance. We are very appreciative of this agency and the service that it offers to the Vets here. The program services director is quick to respond and good about communicating if something is missing that they need.
