Here are some frequently asked questions of our organization, along with relevant answers. If you have a question not listed here, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm a veteran. Can my family members participate in your programs?
Yes, our programs are open to veterans, their spouses, and their children. However, family members must be accompanied by the veteran to attend the program.
How much do your programs cost?
All of our programs are free to veteran attendees. Our goal is to keep it this way throughout our organization's existence. For veteran family members, if there are fees, they will be explicitly listed alongside the program information.
How are you different from all of the other veteran support organizations?
All of our services are free of charge to veterans. We focus on what it takes to find a career, advance a career, or have a successful business.
Networking and mentorship, which we believe is lacking for transitioning veterans, are both cornerstones of our programs. We want to give veterans an opportunity to bridge the gap between their existing world and the world they want to be in.
What are the opportunities available to get involved?
There are a number of ways you can be involved. You can volunteer, you can be a corporate sponsor, you can be an individual sponsor, you can be a mentor or you can be a counselor.
There are a number of ways you can offer your services and assist the veterans. We just ask that you join as a Community Member because there is always help needed to assist a veteran.
Can only NC veterans be a part of your community?
We plan to be a national organization serving veterans across the United States. In our initial year, however, programs will be available in North Carolina only.
How long have you been in business?
We started the organization in 2017. Our articles of incorporation were finalized with the NC Secretary of State on October 30, 2017 and our tax exempt status from the IRS was approved on March 15, 2018.
How long can veterans participate in your programs?
We love the motto Soldier For Life from the US Army's Transition Assistance Program (TAP). Once you are a Community Warrior at Hope For Brave, you are a member with us for life.
Is your community only for active duty military?
We want to help all veterans and their families. We understand that the needs of a veteran that has already transitioned are slightly different than that one that’s in the process of transitioning as it relates to the timeline.
While we may have a focus on those in the process of transitioning out of the military, all veterans are eligible to attend any of our programs.
