Fast Facts: IVMF By The Numbers
To date, more than 170,000+ transitioning service members, veterans and military family members, were served by IVMF programs. In 2007, when we launched our very first program – before the IVMF was even founded – that number was 17.
Those numbers matter because they speak to our mission, and the commitment of our people, our funders, our partners, and our world-class advisory board to take action to advance and positively impact the post-service lives of this nation’s veterans and their families.
