At the core, PROJECT: VetRelief is guided by four key principles…

We were founded on the ideals of Americanism, Humanity, Integrity, and Community. As both individuals and as an entire organization, our approach shall not waiver from these founding principles and will be guided by them in all decisions and interactions with our service members, their families, our community, and state. PROJECT: VetRelief vows to uphold:
  • A reverence for freedom, justice, and democracy
  • The honor of our service members
  • Strong moral principles backed by ethics and honesty
  • A spirit of camaraderie to inspire change

And we are rooted in a solid foundation.

  • The American Legion, Department of Florida is the backbone of PROJECT: VetRelief. This established and influential organization provides the funds, manpower, and advocacy needed to guide us towards our vision of a nation where no service member stands alone.
  • PROJECT: VetRelief is the vessel through which we deliver our services, ensuring that our service men and women have the backing they need to live successful and thriving civilian lives.
  • VetRelief Advocates are our boots on the ground providing assistance during times of immediate need, working to secure benefits earned with service, and providing encouragement through mentorship.

SUSTAINABILIY
