The Problem

As thousands of men and women return home from service, Emergency financial assistance has emerged as one of the top 3 types of requests. With thousands of nonprofits providing financial assistance, there needed to be a centralized history of it all. Veteran's financial assistance fraud is an abuse of charities' generosity and support. Service members and veterans with financial hardship often struggle with large amounts of debt that quickly grows out of control. Not knowing how to pay all their debts, some veterans may seek assistance from the many veterans' service organizations that exist to provide emergency financial assistance.

Non-profits who provide valuable emergency aid had no way to verify that the Hero had not already received the assistance elsewhere. Furthermore, non profits could not validate multiple requests being fulfilled for the same reasons.

The Solution

By joining the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network created by VeteransPlus, Partner organizations can access a central database of Veterans who applied for and received financial assistance from charities across the country. Partners can check all applicants against records in the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network to determine if another charity previously helped them. All members of the network keep notes on veterans' application to better open the lines of communication across veteran service organizations to stop abuse and ensure donations are going to the most deserving.
