The veterans who served our country in the past are over looked and not assisted in many ways. The Wounded Veterans Foundation takes pride in assisting ALL wounded veterans on a daily basis with the departments provided.
Mission: Provide service dogs to veterans with combat related PTSD and other mental health issues.
Breakdown: The service dog department partners with other service dog organizations across the United States to provide service dogs to veterans in need. The Wounded Veterans Foundation covers the leftover cost of the dog that the organizations do not cover or the total cost if needed. If accepted through our application, the veteran will then begin the process through the organization that we are working with in order to receive the dog.
It has been shown that service dogs can help prevent suicide, get veterans off of many medications, and provide a special companionship to the owner.
Mission: Help wounded veterans meet the required needs after becoming disabled or help wounded/disabled veterans by rehabilitating their home.
Breakdown: The housing department is a great way to make veterans’ lives much easier. For example, if a Vietnam veteran becomes disabled from agent orange or any other military service related incident, we can send in a contractor to quote the price on the needed home improvements. We will build a handicap accessible porch, install railings, replace the old bathtub with a handicap tub, open doorways, install a lift for second level homes, lower sinks, and much more on a needed basis. We can leave that veteran with zero daily frustrations in adjusting to his or her new situation.
