The Veterans Assistance Foundation (VAF) Building 407 of the Veterans Administration in Tomah is horrible. The VAF has no intention of helping veterans. The harass and discriminate against veterans with special needs. As long as you pay their fees, they have a bed open for you.
The VAF does not help veterans, they merely house you. The Executive Director, The Program Director and the Step up Step out Director have no knowledge of how to do their jobs. The VAF simply makes things up as they go. The VAF is run like a private club. There is no way I would recommend this organization to any other agency, or individual for any kind of assistance.
I worked for VAF for 12.5 years and know first hand the capabilities the management and staff have working with homeless veterans. The housing and supportive services provided makes VAF one of the best programs in the country.
