Hey everyone, my wife who can find anything on the Internet, said she found no such charity organization on the net however, (in our opinion) she found multiple scam organizations with the same address. The short story is that the give only an extremely small amount to the needy and keep almost all of your donated money for "Expenses." I will NOT be giving what little money have for charity to these guys!

Yes, they are real, and it looks like 75% of their moneys go to the charity.

Unfortunatly I too have looked everywhere and did not find an organization in Greenwood, IN. I did find one in Falls Church VA. However, they are not the same group. The IN group is using the VA groups tax ID and If you look up the non-profit number on the brochure (54-1847890) and then click on the website, the real organization is at vetsvision.org. The toll free numbers do not match nor do the logos. I would have to say that the IN group is a scam. But if you want to give money go to the vetsvision.org website. they give out 89% of their income to programs.

This is a legitimate veterans organization - their headquarters are in Falls Church, VA - the Greenwood Indiana address is a processing center for donations.  About 75% of their donations go directly to helping the veterans.  That's a good percentage.  12/28/09 - EMM

Yes they are legit.  An earlier poster gave a wrong link to the WA sec.of state listing.  Here's the right one.  http://www.sos.wa.gov/CHARITIES/search_detail.aspx?charity_id=8750

I called the Center of Homeless Veterans in Arlington Va. The Greenwood office in Indiana is a valid organization for taking donations. I think they do a lot of work helping organizations tailor services to homeless veterans. It would be nice if they could publish somewhere on the web on what organizations they support or what accomplishments they have made over the past ten years. This would help in people being skeptical of their work.
