College scholarships and working with Congress and the White House
1. Several groups provide scholarships or grants for children of veterans who need financial aid. Others provide assistance for veterans.
Veterans1 is working with organizations that have surplus funds, trying to get them to provide assistance for children or veterans that other groups with limited funding have identified as worthy.
2. Veterans in need of medical care – for injuries or traumatic stress – sometimes fall between the cracks. Our task is to eliminate the bureaucratic cracks and alert the right people to problems faced by current veterans and their families.
Recently, we were able to help a wounded veteran by alerting his Member of Congress to the problem. After months of frustration, with the Congressman’s intervention, the problem was solved in less than 48 hours.
