About Veteran Health Services:

Veteran Health Services was founded by Stephen Goldberg, MD, to address the unmet psychiatric, psychological and behavioral health needs of America’s returning service men and women. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to providing veterans and their families with unparalleled behavioral healthcare, trauma, and substance abuse-related services regardless of their meeting traditional criteria for “medical necessity” or their ability to pay. Veteran Health Services believes that to truly honor their service, veterans must be treated as heroes, and endeavors to do so by providing them unconditional access to exemplary clinicians that are specifically trained in militaryculture and veteran-related issues.

About the Give 5 Drive:

With $5, you can rent that explosive new action film. Or you could help to make a real hero healthy again.

An unprecedented charity requires an unprecedented fundraiser.

The Give 5 Drive (#Give5Drive) is currently seeking 5 million supporters who are willing to donate $5 to the cause. Funds will go towards purchasing and renovating the building Veteran Health Services will call home, the operations of Veteran Health Services’ first location and future Veteran Health Services’ sites. When you donate, you will also get to vote on where the next Veteran Health Services will be located from the following cities chosen because of their high concentration of veterans in need.

The choices are:

  • Charlotte, NC
  • Jacksonville, FL
  • Norfolk, VA
  • San Diego, CA
  • Seattle, WA

In addition to providing an environment that is spacious, well-appointed, and accessible for all of Veteran Health Services’ needs, residual office space will be leased to outside businesses and agencies as a means of generating income for expenses not covered by fee for service or grant funding, and will subsequently sustain VHS’ efforts long into the future.
