Welcome Message from the Acting Director

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has no more important mission than to serve those who sacrificed so much for our country and for all of us – protecting our freedom and way of life.  As an integral staff office of the VA Office of the Secretary, Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships (CFBNP) mission is to engage, inform and educate faith-based, nonprofit and community/neighborhood organizations in VA programs to better serve the needs of Veterans, their families, Survivors, caregivers and other beneficiaries.

There is no better way our mission can be achieved without CFBNP developing and cultivating partnerships with organizations already providing services to Veterans that walk through their doors on a daily basis.  Currently, 12.8 million of 24.4 million Veterans and eligible family members are receiving some type of VA care and services.  VA CFBNP needs your organization assistance to increase that number to 100%, by doing so, will ensure all Veterans have the benefits they have earned and deserve.

We know when an organization is armed with knowledge; it’s staff can and will speak confidently on that subject.  VA CFBNP welcomes the opportunity to conduct workshops at your organizations, setup a booth at conferences/events, VA resources, etc., in order to equip your organizations and clients with information about VA benefits and programs.  Our end game is to reach every Veteran across this nation and we have no doubt VA CFBNP can do it with your help!

VA CFBNP wants to hear about all the good work and stories your organization is doing in the community to support Veterans to be featured on our webpage.  Also, we would like your suggestions of ways VA CFBNP can better service and connect with our rural Veterans.
