About Us

MISSION STATEMENT

Our Mission is to establish and maintain a comprehensive community service agency with a diversified funding source that will serve the needs of veterans, their families, and other needy individuals of the community.

Commitment

For 47 years, the American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) has been united by its unbreakable commitment to provide veterans, their families, and other needy populations with the services to achieve sustainable housing and meaningful careers. From the beginning, NVOP has accomplished its mission by advocating for improved care and services for veterans of the Vietnam era, and it has evolved over the past four decades to be at the forefront of services for post-9/11 veterans and other service members who are transitioning to civilian life.

Goals

Our goal is to provide services to no less than 1,000 individuals each year through a variety of innovative operations, including housing services for homeless veterans and their families, job assistance for veterans with barriers to employment, and a program for both veterans and non-veterans who need assistance with moving off of public benefits and reintegrating into the workforce.

Objectives

Our objective is to make it as easy as possible for veterans, their families, and other vulnerable individuals to navigate and access housing services and job resources in our community. We tackle some of the most complex inequities amongst both the veteran and non-veteran population, and our team works tirelessly to restore dignity in those who seek comfort, support, and assistance.

NVOP is leading the way for our warriors coming home.

HISTORY

Founded in 1972 by veterans for veterans, the American GI Forum National Veterans Outreach Program (NVOP) has been recognized as a premier community-based veteran service organization for the past 47 years. Over the past four decades, NVOP has assisted more than 450,000 veterans, including those who are experiencing chronic homelessness, disabled veterans re-entering the workforce, veterans with criminal backgrounds, and veterans recently discharged from military duty.

The organization’s unique service activities include housing assistance, job placement, mental health counseling, street outreach, and economic development projects. These services have earned NVOP numerous awards from the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for its current SSVF program.
