- Providing direct services to disabled veterans and their families where needed.
- Collaborating with like-minded organizations to provide those services whenever it is in the best interests of veterans and their families.
- Paying particular attention to the needs of underserved groups of veterans, including women who served our country, homeless veterans, and those who suffer such
invisible wounds as brain injuries and PTSD.
- Working on our own and with other organizations to advance the interests of all disabled veterans and their families.
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation works to advance a number of current issues that impact the lives of disabled veterans and their families. Some of these issues are illustrated by the news stories listed below;
- As an extraordinary number of disabled veterans wait for the government to handle their claims, VA Secretary Eric Shinseki promises to change the way the VA does business.
- There are no “front lines” in Afghanistan and Iraq, where women fight side-by side with men. Like DVNF, Congressman Bob Filner demands real recognition and benefits for women who serve.
- Eliminating homelessness among America’s military heroes is one of DVNF’s highest priorities. A bill introduced by Senator Patty Murray would achieve a great deal for homeless vets.
