Health & Comfort Program

What is Our Mission?

 

DVNF H&C LogoThe DVNF Health & Comfort Program expands DVNF’s reach into veteran communities throughout the United States, bringing tangible aid to veterans who are disabled, low-income, or homeless, in ways we otherwise could not.

By leveraging the in-kind support of individuals and corporate supporters, DVNF provides food, water, clothing, and health and hygiene items to veterans of all walks of life. Whether it’s a year-round homeless shelter or veteran Stand Down, or an outreach event like the Marine Corps Trials and Warrior Games, DVNF is there to make a positive impact on the lives of the men
and women who stood in defense of our nation.
