VHV Foundation - Your Support
Helping veterans and soldiers help themselves is what we do. The number of veterans and soldiers in need of support has increased dramatically in the last decade. Estimates, generally viewed as being on the low side, indicate that there are 12,000 homeless veterans and soldiers and another 14,000 suffering from PTSD. Veterans Affairs Canada has estimated that 1 in 10 military personnel that served in Afghanistan suffer from PTSD.
As we look forward to expanding and increasing the support we provide to the veterans we will require increasing levels of support. We have found that individuals, communities and community leaders have helped us in many ways. We now have to work at all levels to expand this support.
Your support will make a difference.

Fund Raising Events
Our annual golf tournament has been a very successful fund-raiser. Individuals and organizations that support this annual event have made it a success.
Local initiatives, like the Superstore barbeque, provide valuable support and awareness of our mission and the needs of veterans and soldiers that have served.
Community leaders have supported our events and provided their personal perspectives on the importance of our work. Their active presence is a testament to the value they see in what we do for veterans and soldiers.

Service organizations provide help when help is needed. We rely on these organizations to support the work we do with services they provide. We will be actively seeking other organizations that offer needed services for our veterans and soldiers.
