Mission Statement

Our mission is to assist and serve Veterans.  This includes support in regards to Veteran issues.  VFA is dedicated and committed to its promise to reach out and assist Veterans.  We are Veterans who have served our great country and will continue to serve America as proud and productive citizens.  We will leave no Veteran behind in this endeavor.  Veterans For America is on a mission to end the homeless Veteran problem in America.  Most important Veterans For America is on a mission to end the tragedy of Veteran suicide.  We are a peaceful yet powerful voice in the chambers of our government fighting for the 'Benefits' and the ‘Rights’ of all Veterans.

Our Story

Veterans For America was conceived due to the financial government cut-backs during the early 1990’s.  VA medical personnel and staff were being laid-off leaving thousands of Veterans waiting longer periods of time for medical care.  A small group of Veterans began helping each other.  Those who had the financial means would help those Veterans in greater need.  This small group of compassionate Veterans became a important source of help and inspiration.  Many Veterans who received a helping hand from their fellow Veterans during those tough years have been ‘Paying it Forward’ ever since.

The Vision

Veterans For America is working along with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other Veteran Service Organizations assisting and serving Veterans.  

To benefit U.S. Military Veterans, the VFA is working along with the VA, Veterans and outstanding Veteran Service Organizations to build a "united" Veterans organization working together as a TEAM!  The United States Military Homeless men, women and Veteran's children will be able to find a place that they can call "Home".  We are grateful to our American citizens for their assistance and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs for helping Veterans receive the excellent care and treatment they deserve.  The VFA's vision is for all Veterans to gain access to housing and the best VA medical care available.  Veterans will be working in good paying high-skilled positions all across America!  The United States Military Veterans will be protecting America's principled values of freedom outlined in our U.S. Constitution long after we have been Honorably Discharged from our Military Service in the United States Armed Forces.  

Let's help Vets!
