Review for Volunteers for Veterans Foundation, Fontana, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Volunteers for Veterans Foundation offers support to our veterans throughout the year. Even through the Covid crisis, they were there with food and financial help. Supporters have dedicated themselves to keeping the Foundation on stable financial ground. As Foundation Secretary I have been able to obtain a few grants that have helped. While this is the last year for the annual Veterans Car Show, supporters will continue as will the assistance offered to veterans.

Review for Heroes Warehouse, Alta Loma, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is an organization that meets housing needs of our Veterans. These people work tirelessly to gather and distribute furniture and basic essentials that are needed to set up a home. This is a small but mighty group and I'm proud to network with them.

Rating: 5 stars  

It is with pleasure that I am able to share my experience with the Volunteers for Veterans Foundation. This is a Foundation (VFVF) that is committed to assisting any military veteran in need of a helping hand. Many Veterans re-entering civilian life need assistance in setting up a new household for their families and come to the Foundation for help while awaiting the VA benefits to come through. Helping a family in crisis find temporary housing, paying a utility bill before service is interrupted and insuring there is food on the table is only a small part of what this organization does. Funds are made available to carry veterans through times of need. Cash is not provided, but the Foundation will pay for short term rent, emergency housing expenses, and utilities. Gift cards are issued for food markets, clothing and other supply stores such as Home Depot. Gas and car repairs are provided when needed to retain employment. In addition to the personal assistance offered by the Foundation, allocations are made annually to specific needs of the patients who are served by Loma Linda Medical VA Hospital. ThIS Foundation works closely with other veteran support groups to provide out-reach programs for those who may not be aware of available services.

I am very proud to tell you about my support for this valuable organization. Volunteers for Veterans Foundation (VFVF) is an all-volunteer organization that is committed to assisting any military veteran in need. Once a Veteran is qualified through the Social Services Department of the Veteran’s Hospital, they are often sent to VFVF for assistance that is not available through the VA. It is important for all our Veterans to have a place to go when a crisis hits such as disability, loss of a home or loss of a job. Assistance through VFVF is immediate and occurs when access to other support programs is not available. The Foundation helps these people from falling through the cracks of the bureaucracy that is present in most other support programs. As a member of the Board of Directors for this Foundation, I am aware of year round efforts and the number of hours spent by our supporters to raise funds. I look forward to continuing working with this amazing group of people for the benefit of our Veterans.

I am a proud member of this organization and am honored to be affiliated with so many caring, selfless people who make it possible to continue supporting our Veterans. Led by Larry and Betty Volk, this group has worked tirelessly for more than 25 years to raise funds that go directly to Veterans in need. This foundation has provided support by way of funds for food, rent, utilities, car insurance, clothing, etc. Assistance has been provided for, not only hospitalized Veterans by providing support to many events and programs, at the Loma Linda VA Hospital including, Women Veterans, Returning Combat Veterans, Social Work Emergency Fund, Eyeglasses, Hygiene Kits, Vet Centers, Recreational Therapy and the Community Living Center. In conjunction with the Social Work Services at the hospital, funds have gone to support, Homeless Veterans, provided food, bus tickets, gas cards, etc. has been supplied to needy vets. Past support has been for an ambulance van to transport critical care patients, or those needing transport to other medical appointments or facilities, TV’s and cable service, coffee carts and support for the Honor Guard at the National Cemetery in Riverside, CA. I look forward to continuing working with this amazing group of people for the benefit of our Veterans.
