Abstract

Founded in 1978, the National Veterans Services Fund, Inc. (formerly Vietnam Veterans Agent Orange Victims, Inc.) is a not-for-profit organization that provides case-managed social services and limited medical assistance to veterans and their families, with a focus on families with disabled children. NVSF, Inc. provides an integrated program of services managed by veterans that include the following: a national hotline for veterans and their families that responds to hundreds of inquiries each month from throughout the country; an extensive repository of free information on topics ranging from the history of the Agent Orange lawsuit to the most recent veterans' legislation; a special fund that offers limited emergency economic assistance and relief for families in crisis; business partnerships that make it possible to secure services and equipment at reduced rates or at no cost for families in need; peer counselors work with veterans who are isolated from traditional social services support and enable family members to work together to determine their own course of action to resolve their problems.
