CVMA 27-2 Presents Virginia Veterans and Family Support with Donation of Twenty Thousand Dollars
By: Combat Veterans Motorcycle Assoc., Chapter 27-2
CVMA Chapter 27-2 is a nonprofit charitable organization, based out of Garrisonville, Virginia, committed to helping local veterans in Northern Virginia. Chapter members are veterans themselves that have served in combat operations, from Vietnam through the current Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, some of whom are even continuing to serve our Country. CVMA members are veterans who ride motorcycles as a hobby and have a passion for helping our Country's brave men and women who have served and who continue to serve to protect our freedoms. The motto of the CVMA is Vets helping Vets. In the past eight years CVMA Chapter 27-2 has been able to raise and donate over $167,000 to help support issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Virginia Veterans Services Foundation directly supports the Virginia Veteran and Family Support, which is a department of the Virginia Department of Veteran Services. VVFS proudly serves Virginia's veterans and their family members with access to behavioral health, rehabilitative, and supportive services. VVFS places special emphasis on assisting service members, veterans, and families on their road to recovery from the effects of stress-related injuries (such as combat stress, post-traumatic stress or military sexual trauma) or traumatic brain injuries. VVFS provides assessment of individual and family needs and direct provision of needed medical, behavioral health, or rehabilitative services available through public and private treatment programs. VVFS served 2,100 veterans and their family in 2018, including providing 945 behavioral health services. Through the Veteran Homeless Fund, VVFS assisted 260 homeless Veterans to move into permanent housing. VVSF relies solely on public funding to support their efforts of our Virginia veterans.
