How much of my contribution will go directly to veterans? 

The legal services provided by VLI are not “in-kind.”  We don’t buy blankets or provide food.  Our dedicated staff and pro-bono attorneys, usually provide thousands, even tens of thousands, of dollars in legal services to the “bottom of the barrel,” often combat veterans.  The work we do may get them a roof over their head.  Sometimes a returning warrior finds themselves in legal trouble due to poor choices.  Many are young, alone and inexperienced in life outside the military.  By representing them, we get them the second and, yes even third chance, they need to re-engage as productive community members.  Without VLI, these needs would go un-answered creating joblessness and homelessness that is below the dignity due these brave men and women.
