Our organization, Veteran Car Donations, looks after the welfare of our retired military personnel who are not receiving government assistance. We aim to help them in their transition back to civilian life. With the help of our military and veteran non-profit organization partners, we are implementing programs that provide services to these veterans and their families.
Our partners in these endeavors are: Eagleâ€™s Watch Foundation, Got Your Back Network, Homes For Our Troops, and Soldiersâ€™ Angels Serving Veterans, Inc.
The Major Problems Our Veterans Face and How Weâ€™re Tackling Them
Unemployment is one of the major problems our veterans face. Records show that the unemployment rate among veterans after 9/11 is at 13 percent, including disabled troops. That rate is 2.7 percent higher than the countryâ€™s civilian unemployment rate.
With your vehicle donations to our Parma, Ohio car donations program, we are able to provide educational assistance as well as job and skills training to our still unemployed veterans. Through this program, we aim to lessen the unemployment problem among veterans and help them find decent jobs to enable them to sustain themselves and their families.
An estimated 11 to 20 percent of our troops deployed in either Iraq or Afghanistan returned home with either post-traumatic stress disorder or clinical depression. These conditions have led some members of our military to commit suicide.
Our nonprofit partners provide grief counseling sessions to both active and retired military troops as well as their families to help get rid of their depression and other mental issues that are preventing them from living normal lives. The counseling sessions also seek to stop veterans from thinking about committing suicide to end their mental distress.
Two other major problems that afflict our retired troops are disability and homelessness. Severely injured veterans with physical disabilities have a hard time getting employed and they often end up living on the streets.
For these veterans, our nonprofit partners have come up with a program to build them specially adapted mortgage-free homes.
