Helping our Neighbors

Over the next several years the US Government estimates that over one million veterans will leave active duty service.

When they do, many are going to need health care or disability compensation. All of them will go through the process of learning to be civilians again, often a challenging and difficult process.

Douglas County currently has over 20,000 veterans, and our foundation is dedicated to continuously honor and support both our current and future veterans. Learn more about how we stay active in the community and answer that call.

Douglas County currently has over 20,000 Veterans, The Douglas County Veterans Monument Foundation is dedicated to continuously honor and support our current and future veterans. The best way we can do that is to provide assistance in three key areas.

  1. Transportation needs; because it can prove to be challenging for our veterans to get to their medical, VA or VA traffic court appointments, since there isn’t any public transportation.
  2. Special Needs Grants; so that we can provide individualized and direct support to our veterans and their families to help bridge any gaps between government agencies.
  3. Hosting Educational & Networking events; so that we can raise awareness of the benefits and resources available to our Veterans.

While we need your continued financial support, we also need your help in raising awareness about the programs we are offering.  If you know a veteran that could use some assistance in the above mentioned areas please contact us.
