We are still the same non-profit organization doing all of the same things we have done since the organization was founded in 1941. Our volunteers work for veterans in the care of VA Medical Center professionals across the country. We simply changed the word "Voluntary" to "Veterans" as we feel it better communicates our mission. We are still a volunteer organization serving our heroes, run by volunteers, with no paid staff. We are still "UVS".
United Veterans Services (UVS) is a non-profit charitable organization with a goal of service to our United States Military Veterans. It was started in 1941 to help assist with civil defense efforts and has since been transformed into a service organization which attends to the needs of hospitalized veterans. Its motto "Build a Bridge of Service" is to bridge the gap between the community and our Veterans in VA Medical Centers. Funds for UVS are raised through antique shows, golf tournaments, donations and community activities.
Our Mission Statement:
United Veterans Services is a national service organization committed to recruiting volunteers and raising funds to help meet the needs of hospitalized veterans in Veterans Affairs Medical Centers throughout the nation, thereby strengthening the human spirit and quality of life for these veterans. We are a non-profit corporation, whose mission is "never having to say NO" to any worthwhile request for a veteran from a VA Medical Center anywhere in the USA.
