PROGRAMS

Veterans R&R provides a number of programs. The heartbeat of "what we do" is to educate and "creating awareness" is our #1 program. There are over 43,000 non profits and government agencies that service veterans in some capacity. Did you know that 50% of veterans never seek any service, the veteran rate of homelessness is double the civilian population and 22 veterans including 1 active duty commit suicide a day. We need your help.
