Our Lake Jackson, Texas car donations program provides funding to dedicated nonprofit organizations that render services to our active and retired troops, particularly those veterans who have not received assistance from the national government. Our nonprofit organization,Â Veteran Car Donations, aim to lessen the burdens of our returning troops while they transition back to civilian life.
We have studied the struggles our veterans are facing during their transition. With the help of ourÂ military and veteran non-profit organization partners, we have been able to provide services that address their problems.
Poverty leading to homelessness is one of the major problems facing many of our veterans. Recent studies show that 13% of Americaâ€™s homeless population is comprised of veterans.
Poverty persists because many of our veterans are unable to find decent jobs. The unemployment rate for veterans is at 13%, higher than the countryâ€™s general homeless population rate of 7.3%. During the term of President Barack Obama, the nationwide store Walmart was the biggest employer of retired troops. But despite this, many of our veterans remain unemployed.
To address this problem, we provide funds coming from our Lake Jackson,Â TexasÂ car donations for veterans to our nonprofit partners that offer job and skills training to our veterans to enable them to find employment.
We Help Retired Troops Suffering from PTSD
Many of our veterans who served in Iraq were found to be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. This was apparently the result of life-threatening events they experienced in the field. PTSD rates among veterans, according to studies, were placed at 20%.
Veteran Car Donations in theÂ cityÂ addresses this concern by providing funds for grief counseling programs for active and retired troops and their families.
We also provide funds for the construction of mortgage-free houses that have special facilities for handicapped residents. These houses are for troops who suffered severe injuries in battles fought overseas after 9/11.
