31 May

Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) has recently awarded USA Cares with a grant of $25,000 to fund their Combat Injured program.

USA Cares, a national nonprofit organization supporting military families in crisis, is honored to announce that the Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) has recently awarded USA Cares with a grant of $25,000 to fund their Combat Injured program. USA Cares’ Combat Injured program covers basic expenses for veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST) while they receive treatment.

“The generous grant provided by the Disabled Veterans National Foundation will empower our organization to better address the needs of the countless combat injured veterans who seek our help,” said Hank Patton, Executive Director of USA Cares. “Since 2014, DVNF has been an incredible supporter of the work we do at USA Cares, and we cannot thank them enough for continuing to help us change lives in military communities across the nation.”

“Mental health is a major issue for so many veterans who have served our nation, and if left untreated can take a major toll on a veteran and their families,” said DVNF CEO, Joseph VanFonda (USMC SgtMaj Ret.). “The Combat Injured program offered by USA Cares has been, and continues to be, a tremendous asset for veterans seeking treatment, and DVNF is proud to once again support this outstanding initiative.”
