During fiscal year 2022 the Florida Veterans Foundation helped qualified Veterans and their families with $373,000 in assistance. Categories of support were for those who were experiencing emergency crisis situations. These included mental health, suicide prevention, and opioid prevention. To prevent homelessness, we served Veterans with housing, utilities and rental assistance, and food. A huge need in helping we provided aging wartime Veterans with special benefits.
The Florida Veterans Foundation recovered over $17 million dollars in long-term care assistance for Aging Wartime Veterans/Survivors, served over 67,000 Veterans and their families, printed, and distributed over 150,000 Florida Veterans Benefits Guides and provided Emergency Crisis Hotlines to help our Veterans find immediate assistance. In Leon and surrounding counties, FVF Served 7,619 Veterans, survivors, and their families.
The Foundation provides Veterans and their families with direct services, and partners with state and local governments, veteran service organizations, and educational institutions to improve their physical, financial, mental, emotional, and social well-being.
