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.

I am proud that they are a part of my community. Since they have opened in our community, I have seen awareness for financial needs for veterans spread like wildfire.

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!

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.
