Core Values, & Vision

  • Veteran advocacy is not a "For-Profit Venture", it is a spiritual calling.  
  • Within the veteran service entitlement model the variable of time is often overlooked, while Veterans suffer in their trek from months to years, in an attempt to adjust back to civilian life. As they wait for help that feels like help veterans encounter substance abuse, homelessness, and arrest often replacing employment, liberty, and freedom.
    • The alternative to resiliency and an effective civilian reintegration model for veterans is an alarming one. State agencies often fail to have multi-systemic reintegration models, non-profit agencies are often rooted in a single service delivery model, and this creates a vacuum of need federal agencies can not fill.
    • We believe that multi-systemic, statistically proven models of soldier to civilian reintegration should be the norm, and not the exception. Collaboration with all service providers is the key to success.      
    • Nationwide, millions of donated dollars have gone to alleged veteran organizations that do nothing more than capitalize on the good will of Americans. We find this dishonor sickening and seek to right this social imbalance. 
    • Social responsibility, Fiscal Transparency, and Social Justice is the foundation of community trust we are built upon.                                                                            
    • VetFuel is a LEAN organization. We constantly strive for a value creation process that has zero waste and limited overhead.
    • Our belief is that veterans are not victims of inability, lack of skill, or lack of personal will. We believe that structured reintegration, not long-term entitlement dependency, is the key to civilian self-actualization after military service.
    • VetFuel's vision seeks to fulfill President Lincoln's promise which we interpret as the following: To care for those whom shall have borne the battle, by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s Veterans regardless of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, genetic information, or disability.  
    • We interpret this promise as service to veterans  that have been victims of crimes such as Military Sexual Trauma, whom need assistance, but want to maintain anonymity by using private providers.  
          • We help everyone without apology & means tested advocacy is the hallmark of our work. By committing to this course of action we have framed ourselves squarely in line with a moral obligation to charity--Tzedakah.
