Help Support The SVF
WHAT YOUR DONATIONS PROVIDE
Your donation to Spokane Veterans Forum will invest in veterans, creating a ripple effect in communities across the northwest. The Forum provides veterans the means for seeking a healthy lifestyle, and develop life skills. Your donation will secure treatment the veterans have earned and assist them to secure employment, prevent living on the streets and prevent the possible tragedy of suicide. When you give to Spokane Veterans Forum you help:
- Aggressively provide a veteran defendant to have the opportunity for treatment and restoration in partnership with a Veterans Treatment Court and trained mentors and, to avoid incarceration.
- Implement a Veterans Mentoring Program to reach every veteran defendant in need.
- Raise Awareness about the challenges veterans face coming home from military service and the possible incarceration for misdemeanor offenses due to the symptoms of PTSD, TBI and MST.
Provide financial resources to:
- Maintain the monthly Forum that gives the opportunity to veteran defendants and mentors to engage in supportive interaction, share a meal and participate in therapeutic, educational and life skills classes – all free of charge to the veterans. Donations help defray the expenses to provide meals and supplies
- Provide tuition and travel expenses for Mentors and Operational Staff to attend conferences, seminars or classes.
- Provide honorariums and travel expenses for educational guest speakers.
We gratefully appreciate your tax-deductible contribution and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Pat Humphries, SVF President at 509-953-3023.
