Veterans First is very organized and keeps you updated on all information needed to volunteer for their events and other health, support, career assistance and family services they offer to Veterans.
I was very proud to be of service to those Veterans who have served our country and look forward to any assistance I can provide to those dedicated to our Veterans.
The appreciation from our Veterans that attended was an unforgetable experience and worth every minute being apart of this opportunity that I would have not been able to be a part of without the continued efforts Veterans First.
This non-profit is one of the only ones I've come across that deals specifically with Veterans and their families. I was impressed with how much they do: anywhere from housing to showers and food, employment, benefits, etc! Being here was exciting, busy, and rewarding! I loved it!
Veterans First is an effective, viable and extremely dedicated grass-roots organization that has developed from a dream to an effective reality impacting the lives of challenged and vulnerable men and women who has served our county. As a volunteer at the 2011 and 2012 Orange County Stand Down events, I have witnessed outreach in the areas of medical and dental treatment, job placement assistance, legal aid referrals, social services, housing opportunities and most importantly, the establishing of on-going relationships between Veterans First and the veterans themselves in a manner that is dignified, respectful, helpful and filled with gratitude for each individual. As the word about this organization continues to get out among the vets, the benefits to many, including our communities, will grow by leaps and bounds.
Veterans first is an organization that helps veterans. As a Vet in business i had been looking for an organization that helps Vets so that I could give back to my brother and sister vets who need a helping hand.
For the past two years i have assisted in the OC Stand Down. What a worthwhile challenge.
Well organized and the feeling I got after the three days, was while i was tired, i felt we did something Great for our Vets who need a hand.
Veterans first I salute you.
Veterans First sponsored the 2012 Orange County Stand Down in Costa Mesa in August. As a volunteer at this event it was reassuring to know that someone is working to help our veterans in need. 173 homeless veterans and 30 family members received services over the 3-day event that they would not otherwise have had access to. Many of our veterans are in need of help and through organizations like Veterans First our heroes have hope of turning their lives around and once again being self-sufficient. Get our veterans off the street and back on their feet.
Review from Guidestar
Veterans First in Orange County, CA is a wonderful organization helping homeless veterans with services and housing. My family helped serve Thanksgiving Day again this as we have for the past 3 years. Every time we volunteer we are very pleased that the staff and clients are so appreciative for our help.
