A hand up not a hand out

Carolina Veterans Support Group

Quite often a Senior Veteran is a Forgotten Veteran.   So much attention(?) is paid to our younger Veterans serving after 9-11, who rightfully deserve all our support.  

Yet, there are millions of Veterans who served in World War II, Korea and Viet  Nam.   Yes, they are departing us daily, but those of us who are still here need a little help!   The two groups have needs in common, but the Senior Veteran has specific needs such as disability resolution, home repairs, transportation, appliance replacement and/or repairs, Aid & Attendance etc  


We must remember that Veterans represent only 1-3% of the population. As long as our fellow citizens are no longer expected to serve, less and less attention will be paid to the Senior Veterans.   Being realistic, Veterans can usually only count on other Veterans and their relatives for help.


Within the Carolina's, there are approximately 1,115,955 Veterans.  Using the National Center for Veterans Analysis and Statistics, there are 497,828 Senior Veterans over the age of 65 living in our two  states.  Federal, state and local agencies struggle to provide home  based services in order toensure that disabled and senior adults can maximize their independence for as long as possible while remaining in their homes. CVSG is committed to assisting in this major need. 

Sadly, there are some Veterans living below the Poverty Level in the two Carolina.   Assuming a percentile of 17.5, there are 29,462 Veterans and their families living below the poverty level.
