Old Hand Young Hand Veteran Services

As a Veteran and having being unemployed for a year before going back to work I realized there is little to no assistance for veterans. There appears to be a ton of groups or organizations out there that state they provide help for veterans financially, finding jobs, and providing housing. However, by the time it takes to finalize all the red tape, those in need of support have found their circumstances to be more dire. Additionally, private organizations who may be able to bypass some of the red tape have so many qualifications in place determining one's veterans status which may disqualify veterans who need help.
My fundraiser is going to focus on veterans in general. Regardless, of time served, wounded or not wounded, award recipient or not, we are all veterans who served our country proudly. Those of us who know veterans or are veterans understand that the pay scale is less than adequate for the responsibilities, obligations, and dangers the men and women of the armed forces face. I want to build a non-profit organization that is operated solely by veterans of all kind who understand what veterans face daily whether it be a veteran from 50 years ago or a veteran from a year ago. I want to be able to assess the situation and needs of veterans asking for assistance immediately and provide help within a week or two period. Verification of a DD-214 showing veteran status is the most important document required to prove a veteran's eligibility. Why it takes an act of congress to receive help is inconceivable. My cause will also include doctors, dentist, restaurants, and grocery stores who will accept vouchers based on "Old Hand Young Hand Veteran Services" pre-qualifications. These pre-qualifications will be approved on a daily basis in order to keep people fed, healthy, and happy.

Finally. this will be the beginning of something I expect to grow at a rapid pace. Hopefully, it will go viral and become a national cause for veterans across the country.

With the assistance of each donation Old Hand Young Hand Veteran Services will be successful!
