Veterans Housing “Solutions” Charity Fraud

Some nonprofits are little more than fronts for fund-raising companies, which bankroll their startup costs, lock them into exclusive contracts at exorbitant rates and even drive the charities into debt. Florida-based Project Cure has raised more than $65 million since 1998, but every year has wound up owing its fundraiser more than what was raised. According to its latest financial filing, the nonprofit is $3 million in debt.

Nearly half of the 39 veterans charities rated by the American Institute of Philanthropy in its April/May 2011 report received F grades.

These nonprofits failed mostly because of their exorbitant fundraising expenses and the fact that they spend a small ratio of their expenses on charitable services or none at all. Don’t be fooled by organizations pretending to resolve the problems of homelessness as a rule of thumb they’re lying! Just a rip-off.

These are the Organizations we recommend:

The Fisher House
The Fisher House provides free housing to wounded troops on the grounds of major military hospitals. “It’s a terrific program because otherwise, to have my family with me it would have been a hotel or some other strange place,” said Bobby Henline, who was badly burned in an IED explosion in 2007 and moved into The Fisher House with his family.

Hero Miles
Through its Hero Miles program, the Fisher House Foundation also provides free air transportation for the families of wounded warriors who must travel between home and hospital. The program uses donated frequent flyer miles from the public.

Semper Fi Fund
The Semper Fi Fund brings specially adapted clothing to amputees.

Adaptive Adventures
Adaptive Adventures takes disabled veterans on ski trips. organize adaptive sports, enabling disabled warriors to go fishing, ride horses, mountain climb, even paraglide. Still others provide job counseling and training and help wounded veterans find jobs.

The Mission Continues, Project Healing Waters, the VA’s community-based sports programs, and Disabled Sports USA. These organizations organize adaptive sports, enabling disabled warriors to go fishing, ride horses, mountain climb, even paraglide. Still others provide job counseling and training and help wounded veterans find jobs. They also help finance handicapped-adapted cars and trucks, organize volunteers to run errands, buy groceries and mow the lawns of families struggling with a severely wounded and hospitalized loved one.

Wounded Warrior Wives
This nonprofit takes the wives of the severely wounded away from their 24/7 bedside caregiver role and flies them away for a weekend of fun and companionship.

Wounded Warrior Project

The Wounded Warrior Project aims to honor and empower warriors, who were injured on or after Sept. 11, 2001, through its athletic, employment and rehabilitative programs. Their Soldier Ride program is dedicated to getting the wounded up out of their wheelchairs or rehab clinics and out onto bicycles. Both organizations are looking for riders, volunteers and fundraisers across the United States.

United Service Organizations
United Service Organizations aims to boost our troops’ morale through its entertainment and educational programming. From its language programs for those stationed in Afghanistan to its touring musical groups in the Persian Gulf, the USO works to provide “a home away from home” for military servicemen and servicewomen stationed in 27 states and 14 countries.
