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!
