The DAV Charitable Service Trust supports physical and psychological rehabilitation programs, meets the special needs of veterans.
In 1986, leaders of the Disabled American Veterans National Organization set up the DAV Charitable Service Trust to advance initiatives that might not fit easily into the scheme of what is traditionally offered through the VA, state veterans' programs, or the veterans' service organizations.
In addition, while the Trust cannot replace every dollar Congress and the Administration shift away from veterans' programs, we feel a duty to step in to the fullest extent possible when funding cuts threaten to seriously harm rehabilitation and therapy programs that are essential to disabled veterans.
Programs supported by the Trust target several groups of physically and psychologically disabled veterans.
Key programs include:
- Helping to maintain a volunteer-operated transportation network providing rides to sick and disabled veterans needing transportation to and from VA medical centers for treatment;
- Providing food and shelter and connecting homeless and needy veterans to essential medical care, VA benefits counseling and job training;
- Meeting the special needs of veterans faced with specific disabilities such as blindness and amputation;
- Supporting significant therapeutic initiatives;
- Supporting physical and psychological rehabilitation projects aimed at some of America’s most profoundly disabled veterans; and
- Bringing hope to the forgotten and suffering families of disabled veterans.
