Moving Veterans Forward was founded by Ron Hernandez from Omaha, Nebraska. He now dedicates a large part of his time helping homeless Veterans in Iowa and Nebraska to get placed in homes.
The Veteran’s Administration out of Omaha notifies him of pending placements and Ron begins to move them in and find the necessities that they need. A large part of our endeavors is collecting furniture, clothing and other household items. The main goal is to give these veterans the boost that they need to turn themselves around to become self-sufficient.
Moving Veterans Forward relies completely on volunteers and everything that is collected is donated from homes locally. Thanks to social media like Facebook with community links, the support from our area has been overwhelming. Every little bit helps, but there is so much more to be done.
The purpose of the Fund is to encourage, solicit, receive and use charitable contributions and the income derived there from (even to the point of exhaustion of principal) in support of the current and future needs of Moving Veterans Forward. The future needs of Moving Veterans Forward may include but not limited to purchasing furniture, food, renting storage units, maintaining vehicle expenses and reimbursement of mileage.
Thank you to everyone who has assisted with this mission.
