DVNF has been a strong supporter of The Fenwick Foundation, a DC-Metro based public charity. Funding from DVNF has greatly assisted our efforts to provide therapeutic socialization activities and educational outings to Veterans in VA Medical Centers (VAMC) therapy units -- psychosocial, psychological, military sexual trauma, substance abuse and physical and rehabilitation therapy; to older disabled veterans living in VAMC and long-term care residences (Community Living Centers) and medical foster homes; to families of active duty service members severely wounded and/or physically and/or psycho-socially disabled in the line of duty; We also provide assistance and respite to full-time family Caregivers of disabled veterans.

Our interactions with DVNF staff have underscored the passion and commitment this organization has for our cherished Veteran and military heroes and their families.

We recently received a capacity building grant from DVNF and are extremely grateful for this opportunity to partner with this great foundation.
We work very closely with the physicians and clinicians of the VA Healthcare System, as well as other Veteran service organizations that refer severely disabled Veterans into our healing and wellness programs.
We offer recreational rehabilitation adaptive sports rowing & kayaking programs, now in 6-States with over 500 program Veterans. The ages range from 23-years old to 100 years old!
We are by far the largest 501c3 not-for-profit Veterans Service organization that offers this type of program weekly and year round.
Our organization will continue this explosive growth because Disabled Veterans National Foundation responded to our need for offering a truly unique and innovated program that helps our disabled Veterans who suffer from both physical and mental disabilities.
We work with the following health issues: PTSD, TBI, substance abuse, severe to moderate depression, anxiety and mood disorders, hearing impaired, cancer patients, amputees, blind and vision impaired and many other disabilities.
Our programs are life changing and truly meaningful and all you have to do is visit our Facebook page or website at Veterans' Rowing & Kayaking, Inc to view all the photos and videos that we post weekly. Thank you DVNF for sharing our passion for excellence in supporting all our men and women who have sacrificed so much for our great country.

God bless the DVNF for connecting to our VR&K organization!
Please support the DVNF so that they can continue to help our organization in the years to come.
Kind regards,
