It is true that this is an organization built to help our veterans but the truth is, they could do a better job. I have witnessed firsthand the things they do and the clients they serve and it hurts my heart. To throw someone back onto the streets with nowhere to go and no help is not helping them get better. To put them out the minute they make a mistake is not helping them. These are people who have served and fought for our country and then they come home with all kinds of problems and can't even get a decent meal. Some need rehab.. But I have never seen a case manager or anyone make sure they get meds or get to the doctor. I witnessed a man get put out because he was off his meds and started doing irrational things. He had nowhere to go but that was of no concern to them. HELPING veterans and families my ass...its all about the money. Non for profit because the profit they get goes right back to them and not the people they are suppose to be helping. My father fought in vietnam..luckily for him he doesn't need this sad excuse of an organization to help.its good to know if he did that they would be here not to help.

Volunteering at HVAF is one of the great joys of my life. As a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, I saw firsthand how war can negatively impact veterans, sometimes leading to a lifetime of struggles with drugs and alcohol. To be able to provide a hand up to those veterans that are suffering from invisible wounds is an honor. No person that ever fought for our nation should be left to sleep on the street. HVAF does everything possible to keep that tragic possibility from becoming a reality.
