How Local Support is helping the National Issue of Veterans Care

Elliott Broidy is part of a growing movement to change how veterans support services are delivered. The Los Angeles philanthropist is showing how local chapters offer a more sustainable model for charitable giving at a national level.
    LOS ANGLES, CA, July 30, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Mr. Elliott Broidy's support for veteran's service organizations in his native Los Angeles is showing how this model is effective for all social causes.

The troubling news of delays in medical care at VA hospitals is sparking broader concerns about how we treat injured veterans. More soldiers continue to return from war in Iraq. Afghanistan and other fronts. This influx complicates veterans care on several levels.

VA hospitals are already facing criticism for inadequate resources and this issue will become worse as more soldiers return home. Veterans care must now also consider a slew of newly diagnosed conditions, such as PTSD, which affect a soldier's ability to assimilate into society.

Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) will now play a bigger role in filling the gaps left by VA hospitals. Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) now offers respite care, benefits counseling and career training as part of an expanding service list. The national organization delivers these services through local chapters or regional training centers.

He recently helped start local efforts that match service dogs with wounded veterans across Southern California. Service dog placement is among many veterans care services that are mostly done at the national level. Actor Gary Sinise and Film Financier Elliott Broidy are part of the Hollywood crowd who advocate improved veterans care, starting at the local level.

The benefits of localized veterans support is more efficient care at lower costs. Policymakers have taken notice as well. A recent bill allows veterans to now seek care at Medicare approved doctors and non-VA programs, as reported by Fox News in a June 5th article. More changes that maximize resources to better care for injured veterans are also imminent.

This makes it more convenient for wounded soldiers and their families to access care. WWP Supporter Elliott Broidy is putting this concept into action in Los Angeles. Find out more at http://www.elliottbroidy.com
