Sandman Glass

Sandman Glass has worked with Vets 4 Vets in a truly collaborative manner by providing much needed support in transportation to our veteran community. With the award of our VW Tiguan through the Keys to Progress Grant, we needed to find a partner to help with on-going costs. Sandman Glass stepped up and we are now able to provide this great resource more easily and focus on other great ways to help our veterans. Thank You!

Mark S. - “Sandman Glass is honored to be community partners with Vets 4 Vets and Dean Kaufman. Veterans come first. Airborne!”

Human Race

The “Human Race” is a walk-a-thon event that includes entertainment, food and a parade of walkers and runners on beautiful West Cliff Drive in Santa Cruz. We are thrilled to join this event each year in May and support our fellow Non-profits locally while bringing awareness and raising funds to support our veterans.

Thanks so much to the Volunteer Center for all their efforts in putting on this great event!

Cabrillo College: Veterans Information Center (VIC)

The Veterans Information Center, commonly referred to as the “VIC”, is one of our great partnerships in the County! The staff, volunteers, and student veterans are truly a wonderful collaborative partner. They strive to help in any way possible, and work diligently to make our County as good as it can be. We look forward to continuing our efforts in the years to come!



Journey for Change

Vision: Reducing the number of veteran suicides through community action and awareness.

Mission Statement: We will reduce the number of suicides among veterans by coming together as a community to create more awareness about PTSD and the unfortunate outcome of veterans losing hope and taking their own lives.

Blue Star Moms of Santa Cruz

The Blue Star Moms of Santa Cruz do many things to support local veterans and military service members stationed abroad. One way they do this is through Operation Warm Embrace where they raise funds, purchase blankets, then coordinate distribution efforts with us annually in December.

Thank you for all you do Blue Star Moms!
