The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) was founded in the fall of 2007 by six women veterans and State Women Veterans Coordinators to expand their scope of work within the veteran’s community. Having spent over twenty years focusing on women veteran’s issues, the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan brought forth the rising need to help returning wounded and disabled veterans. This exacerbated and already over worked and strained VA hospitals and care network that was struggling to keep up with the many surviving veterans of past conflicts and service.
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation works every day to help ensure that the men and women who served our country are getting the services promised them by a grateful nation. DVNF helps veterans find the necessary resources to navigate a complex and bureaucratic VA system in order to receive benefits, counseling, and direct care.
DVNF Executive Board Members are dedicated veteran advocates that are nationally recognized for their more than 35 years of dedicated service to others including both military and civil service. The Board Members are all volunteers, and take no salary or benefits of any type. Our commitment to serve those who served for us and our freedoms are what motivates us to fulfill what we believe is a patriotic obligation.
