Accomplishments

We are very excited to share that VFVF recently started a new program called The Welcome Home Project.

The Welcome Home Project provides

Homeless Veterans who are currently participating in the VA Supportive Housing Program, and become housed with a Welcome Home box filled with various items. The box include, but is not limited to personal hygiene items like toilet paper, bar soap, washcloth; also included are kitchen items like a frying pan, cooking utensils and a dishcloth. Additionally, every box comes with a Stater Bros gift card and Walmart. This gift box is truly life changing, and means so much to our Veterans and their family.

We wish to thank all of our supporters

Because without your help we would not have been able to help individual veterans, active military personnel and their families in 2017 with over $50,000. Also to be able to donate to The Heroes Warehouse, Dog Tags For Kids, Hight Desert Marines, Riverside Honor Detail, Guitars for Vets, Military Baby Showers Loma Linda VA Veterans Centers. To create our welcome home program and support the gift card program at the VA at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

 

One of our major events 2016 was Operation Guardian Angel; it was a great success. We had an awesome turnout of volunteers all with the same goal in mind, to help our Veterans and to end Veteran Homelessness. On this mission, we helped to teach volunteers how to interact with our homeless communities and how to identify the Veterans. By working San Bernardino County agencies and Loma Linda VA we were able to help educate the homeless communities and Veterans about the latest and greatest of resources and benefits available to them. We were also able to provide clothing, food, blankets and personal hygiene items.

We were able to help this veteran, pay his Utilities so they would not get turned off he is very excited he starts a job at the VA on Thursday.

 

He has no means of transportation so will have to take the bus to work we were able to assist him today, VFVF purchased a bike, so he can get to the bus stop, as it is a distance from his home. Our Thanks to Don's Bike shop in Rialto for assisting us in making this happen.

 


We received this from his social worker:


The Veteran loved his bike! He was very excited.
He called and left me a message; yesterday he made it to his first day of work on time. His voice was so joyful. He said his bicycle rides like a Cadillac! He was humble and expressed his gratitude. I heard a big difference in his disposition and confidence
