How to Help

America will welcome home over one million returning veterans to civilian life in the next two years. Join Work Vessels for Vets and help these heroes restart their lives after military duty.

Work Vessels for Vets matches a veteran's needs with corporate and individual donors. As a 501 (c)(3) public charitable organization, WVFV maximizes gifts to qualified returning veterans by providing start-up funding, farm land, and agricultural opportunities, tools, equipment, vehicles, electronics, and products. Veteran recipients agree to "Pay it Forward" by hiring fellow vets in their growing businesses, and assisting their neighborhoods and communities.

Work Vessels for Vets partners with other national veteran organizations and assists veteran rehabilitation networks by sending boats, cars, vans, and sports equipment as they fulfill their missions for our injured returning combat veterans.

An Example Of Your Help

Veteran Todd Rohr accepts a second boat from WVFV as he expands his wounded warrior fishing rehab program to Florida. Work Vessels for Vets gave Todd his first boat a few years ago in Portsmouth, NH to start his fishing recreational rehab program for injured veterans in New England. "Fair winds and following seas, Todd!"
