THE BERNARD COFFEY
Welcome To Our Website
The Bernard Coffey Veterans Foundation is a 501(c) (3) that is dedicated to offering ongoing support and resources for our Veterans, Military, their families and the Community.
We want to make sure our veterans are taken care of by providing resources for them. These men and women serve their country sacrificially and return home to deal with the challenges created during their time of service, challenges created from being away, or often both. Many of these transitioning Veterans have returned with post-traumatic stress disorders, traumatic brain injuries and or substance abuse issues. TBCVF was organized to provide an array of support services, residential services to homeless veterans and military, as well as offer supportive service intervention. We are committed to helping them overcome these challenges.
It is our goal to connect the veterans to jobs (whether they are traditional jobs or jobs tailored to their abilities) and living arrangements. We place a strong emphasis on the men and women that have been displaced from their homes. We also help provide veterans with resources and training to start their own business, helping them to become independent.
It's our way of giving back to those who have given so much.

Last year more than 17,383 participants nationwide and also Japan and Canada, participated in the walk in their prospective areas. Thus, making us a global movement for suicide awareness & prevention. The suicide rates have dropped from 22 to roughly 17 veterans a day. This is due to not only our organization, but others as well, spreading awareness of suicide & prevention. As we continue to empower our veterans, military and the community at large, we are making a difference. We will continue our efforts to do so on April 26, 2019!
