Project Report | Jun 12, 2018
Four years and more to come!

By Miguel Garibay | Vice President

TEXAS VETERANS
TEXAS VETERANS

Dear Friends,

We launched this project in June 2014, and since then we have received tremendous support from all of you, your donations have played a major factor in our ability to assist and help many our veterans, especially to support and fund those areas of need that traditional government grants usually don’t fund.

The needs of our program participants are many and critical for example last quarter our internal reports indicated that the clients we serve present the following issues;

  • 98% HAVE FINANCIAL PROBLEMS
  • 72% HAVE FAMILY ISSUES
  • 74% ARE UNEMPLOYED
  • 85% ARE HOMELESS OR AT-RISK OF BECOMING HOMELESS, and
  • 48% HAVE PROBLEMS OBTAINING VA BENEFITS


With your support to our program for the last four years, we have been able to provide immediate assistance and help stabilized our heroes until we connect them to services or help them in reconnecting with their community.

Your Donations through GlobalGiving have funded many of our supportive services which include transportation assistance, such as the gas cards and bus passes that the veterans utilize for job interviews, job search, and/or other appointments geared towards employment or housing. In the last 4 years, over 500 veterans have received assistance thanks to you.

Because your donations and the grants from our funders, and other corporate sponsors in the last four years we have been able to distribute;

  • 480 Walmart Gift cards (each one of 20.00 Dollar value)
  • 540HEB Gift Cards (each one of 20.00 Dollar value)
  • 405 of 7 Day Local Bus passes.
  • 360 Valero Gas Cards (each one of 20.00 Dollar value)


We are proud to have you as our partner in this effort and we hope you continue to support us in changing lives and connecting communities.
