We are currently facing an urgent need for funding to not only sustain our program but also provide essential assistance to awaiting veterans. Every donation, no matter the amount, is greatly appreciated.
What are some sobering realities about US veterans?
An alarming statistic reveals that 22 veterans commit suicide daily, approximately one every 80 minutes. This number is even higher for Special Forces. Around 30% of veterans are living with disabilities due to their service. Additionally, 13-20% receive a diagnosis of Post Traumatic Stress; according to the VA, about 30% of combat veterans are grappling with PTS.
At FFV, we understand that even though we meticulously evaluate the veterans seeking our program's support, we can't possibly assist everyone. Nevertheless, we make every effort to ensure that each individual departs with more than just hope. Our service provides immediate aid, and we collaborate with veterans to explore long-term solutions beyond our program's scope.
