Our History

Helping transitioning service members for over a decade

BRAVE for Veterans, Inc., incorporated in 2010, is a 501 (c) 3, non-profit organization under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Veterans programs differ: our primary focus in the Veterans space is the financial well-being of Veterans and their family. Our system of support is referral-based not provision. BRAVE is in good standing with the Secretary of State of the Commonwealth.

BRAVE is achieving its mission with the unselfish assistance of volunteers whom we gratefully call Friends of the BRAVE. They are professional volunteers, student interns and colleagues in the veterans’ community in Massachusetts, and our nation’s capital. In our twelve year existence we have received self-funding support in donations from co-founders of time as in-kind contributions with a value totaling in excess of 1 million dollars to date.

BRAVE collaborates with the Massachusetts State Legislature and other affiliate organizations in the Veterans Ecosystem in Massachusetts, and the nation providing thought leadership on the issues and problems confronting veterans and their families, today and beyond.

BRAVE has a special reputation of “knowing what veterans need before Veterans know they need it.”
