A primary goal of the Fox Valley Veterans Council, Inc. (FVVC) is to sustain a Veterans Emergency fund which serves Veterans who are in need of emergency financial assistance. The Veterans Emergency fund provides funding for: housing, utility payments, clothing, food, transportation, and other high priority needs. Assistance is paid directly to creditors.
We partner with other local non-profits, to include: LEAVEN, COTS, Tri-County Dental and others to make the most of the community resources available.
We also have an interest free tool program available for Veteran graduates of FVTC who require basic tools as a condition of employment.
The Veterans Emergency Fund serves veterans and their immediate family (spouse, un-remarried surviving spouse, child, or stepchild) who are in need of emergency financial assistance in Outagamie County, Northern Winnebago County, and Northern Calumet County in Wisconsin. The Veterans Emergency Fund Committee works with the County Veterans Service Offices to determine eligibility of applicants for financial assistance.
Proper documentation must be provided upon request, including:
A copy of a DD214 showing honorable service
Copies of bills for consideration
For housing options additional requirements may be needed dependent on housing partner.
