Review for National Veterans Homeless Support Inc, Tutusville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have worked with NVHS for over twenty years as an Executive Director of another non-profit partner agency. This organization's mission is to "Eliminate homelessness among veterans in Central Florida". Their efforts include Search and Rescue, Stand Down Events, Referral to Veteran's Services and benefits, Housing, Food, Tents, Clothes and anything that can improve the lives of our brave men and women veterans. This Christmas once again NVHS will provide motel rooms for those living in the woods, meals and gifts for many in need. They are currently purchasing and renovating homes for shared living affordable housing. Donations are always needed to help support their efforts.

Review for The Veterans Support Organization, Stuart, FL, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This organization set up a table at a local grocery store to receive donations. I spent time researching their 990 tax return and spoke with the countywide Dept. of Veterans Affairs Health Care for Homeless Veterans officers. The VA has no contact with the non-profit and they have not provided any service to any veterans or veterans organization that anyone is aware of. Their 990 shows they collected over 1 million dollars but only 90,000 actally went to veterans in need. The rest was for subcontractors, fundraising expenses and board member expenses. That is 9 cents on the dollar and unexceptable behavior for an agency who professes to help veterans.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reviewing their 990 tax return.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

actually help veterans in need with the funds that are donated.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...


The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

acting as if they were veterans but I have my doubts about that. I believe they are paid subcontractors.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

line the pockets of too many unworthy individuals.

Ways to make it better...

they spent donations on veterans.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the board members are just out to put money in their pockets.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization discredits non-profits that actally work to make a difference in the lives of veterans.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Reviewed their 990 and spoke to the VA office. Not a worthy organization.
