TESTIMONIALS

“Veterans Rebuilding Life is one of the most impressive organizations that I have ever seen. Staffed almost entirely by volunteers, they rely on evidence-based techniques to accomplish their mission.”
.
Deputy Director
Division of Veteran Services
“Veterans Rebuilding Life is one of the smallest, most effective nonprofits I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Their mission is driven by a sense of duty that only a soldier can understand.”

“100% of every donation made to Veterans Rebuilding Life directly supports the humanitarian mission. No other nonprofit in the United States can make this claim. I’ve done the research. It’s my business to know.”

“I’ve been represented by 4 other veterans groups. In each case there was little help, and I still had to figure everything out on my own. This is not the case with VRL, they’re proactive, and gave me outstanding support.
.
Here’s the kicker: I came to volunteer because I’ve had such a hard time with the VA and wanted to help others. VRL refused my offer because they didn’t believe that my benefits were in order. They started working on my case and told me that I can volunteer once my case is done. That’s integrity.”

Iraq War Veteran
“When I was in dire need of a safe place to sleep for the night, Veterans Rebuilding Life welcomed me and worked hard to get me placed somewhere safe. They went as far as making a run to the store for over-the-counter medicine and had breakfast for me upon waking. Another volunteer drove me to the VA that morning, and later that day I was accepted into veteran housing.
.
I am humbled by, and grateful for, this organization that made asking for help easy, while also empowering me to do the best thing for myself. Thank you for reminding me I’m not alone, and for keeping me safe and off the streets.”

Air Force Veteran
“I had just left Florida after 3 years of being stuck there on family matters that left me homeless and losing my belongings, only to come back to my original home in NYC.
.
I’m overwhelmingly grateful that Veterans Rebuilding Life was there to help. My dog Rocky and I both thank you from the bottom of both our hearts, we are very grateful. We will never forget how fast you got to us out the extreme elements and into safe place for my best friend and I.”

“Veterans Rebuilding Life helped me get into school, paid for my training, and helped me find a great job. No other organization has ever done so much for me. Recommended to any veteran that’s going through hard times.”
.
Navy Veteran
“Literally a life-changing organization, not just for veterans but the entire community. Not only did they deliver free PPE to my local community center/food bank, they provided food, diapers, baby formula, and even purchased a freezer to keep fresh produce for those with limited access in our neighborhood.
.
This is what every donation goes towards, and I cannot say that about too many other organizations. Thank you so much for the work you do VRL!”
