Civilians for Veterans Fund
The Civilians for Veterans Fund (CVF) is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit partnership that helps veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, and their families, to receive free and confidential mental health and substance use treatment in a location near their home. The impact of war and serving abroad on soldiers and their families is great and CVF is committed to getting them the support and tools necessary to readjust to life after combat.
Services supported by the Fund are currently available through six Colorado community mental health centers. CVF aims to expand to other rural and urban parts of Colorado, so that all veterans and their families will have a confidential resource to meet their mental health needs.
