Arvada, Colorado Car Donations: Help Positively Transform Our Veterans’ Lives
Our nonprofit organization, Veteran Car Donations, in Arvada, Colorado is committed to providing funds to support veteran programs. Our organization has partnered with other military and veteran non-profit organization partners to provide assistance to ensure our troops’ welfare.
Veteran Car Donations’ definition of “assistance” is not limited to short-term help for our veterans but also positively transforming their lives. We advocate in providing assistance to veterans and their families. We aim to ease their burden, knowing how hard transitioning to civilian life is.
There are factors that make it difficult for our retired troops to transition to civilian life.
For instance, the rate of veterans having mental disorders has increased to 62 percent since 2001. The worst cases saw a number of veterans taking their own lives in sheer desperation. The veterans’ suicide rate has been placed at a high of 69 percent, which is almost two times higher than non-veteran suicide rate at 37 percent.
Programs for Our Veterans
Your Arvada, Colorado car donations will fund our grief counseling programs for these retired servicemen and women, and their families as well, to help them deal with this mental issue better and how to avoid suicide.
The unemployment rate for veterans who served in Gulf War II was once placed at 9 percent. This rate, however, has decreased by at least 1.8 percent.
