Founded in 2007, the Disabled Veterans National Foundation exists to provide critically-needed support to disabled and at-risk veterans who leave the military wounded-physically or psychologically-after defending our safety and our freedom. We achieve this mission by offering direct financial support to veteran organizations that address the unique needs of veterans and whose missions align with that of DVNF. We provide supplemental assistance to homeless and low-income veterans through the Health & Comfort Programs. We also provide Capacity Building Grants to veterans nonprofits who are serving vets in their communities. Our most recent addition is Tailored for Troops, a program where we partnered with Joseph A Bank to provide new business attire to veterans.
