Los Angeles (PRWEB) September 19, 2005
The National Veterans Foundation (NVF), in conjunction with Verio, a subsidiary of NTT Communications and a leading hosting provider, and Full Mix Marketing, are proud to announce the launch of http://www.nvf.org, a new on-line informational resource for veterans and their families.
This highly interactive website includes a comprehensive and up-to-date set of links to veterans benefit information, VA Counseling Centers, and other service providers across the country. It also includes downloadable videos, and news and information of interest to veterans and their families.
"For the past few years, we have seen a new generation of web savvy vets looking for solutions to the challenge of 'Coming Home,'" said Shad Meshad, President and Founder of the NVF. "From experience, we know the best way to prevent Veterans from falling through the cracks is to ensure that confidential help is always easily accessible. We believe this new website, combined with our existing toll-free helpline service, does just that."
The NVF chose Verio and Full Mix Marketing to facilitate the design and development of the new site. "We felt that Verio and Full Mix Marketing had the depth of experience to help us achieve our goals." We needed a dynamic site that would allow Veterans to easily access information," continued Mr. Meshad.
"We were honored to be chosen by The NVF and Full Mix Marketing to architect and develop the NVF site" says Doug McMaster, vice president of sales for Verio. "We believe that the work they do is critical to the success of returning Veterans. The development of the site required significant assessment of both NVF's business goals and technical requirements. After close consultation with all stakeholders, the team delivered a product that will meet the current needs of the NVF constituency as well as have the ability to grow with the NVF over time."
The NVF's national toll-free helpline (1-888-777-4443) has served the crisis management, information, and referral needs of Veterans and families for nearly 20 years, and has helped more than 275,000 in need access earned benefits, acquire the basic necessities of life, connect with counseling and rehabilitation services, and address the lasting emotional scars of war.
"As the first waves of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have begun returning home, the Foundation's call volume has already increased by 30 percent or more than 15,000 calls in the past year," Meshad noted. "This is only the tip of the iceberg."
The National Veterans Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit health and human service organization. In addition to its helpline, the NVF also conducts Public Education Programs, Training for other Veterans Service Providers, and Community Outreach Programs that provide veterans and families in need with food, clothing, transportation, employment, and other essential resources.
