About Vetcoin Foundation

Vetcoin's goal is threefold, 1) HONOR veteran's sacrifices of the past 20 years (between us, to make up for in a small way the ignominious end to Afghanistan last year), 2) RECOGNIZE the most impactful and innovative non-profits, corporations, and individuals working to help Veterans with the Burrell award, and 3) RAISE AWARENESS (and funding) to help veterans experiencing homelessness through supporting transition housing at the point of need (where they are provided temporary housing, peer counseling, and services until they can get a more permanent situation.
