Mission and Work


Iava's mission is to connect, unite and empower post-9/11 veterans.

Program 1

$1.7m annual program spend • Iava provided membership engagement and services by delivering in-person and online programs to build community, transition assistance and leadership development for veterans and their families. We have had remarkable success with our rapid response referral programs (rrrp). Rrrp is iava's signature case management and referral services program, helping veterans and family members access resources and navigate transition issues related to financial need, legal aid, housing and homelessness, education, employment, mental health, disability claims, and more. 2017 was a milestone year for this program: we provided increased specialized transition assistance to veterans and out total number of veterans served surpassed 8,000 lifetime. Rrrp clients represent all branches of service and live across the united states and internationally. Iava's vettogether program consists of member-led community events that build camaraderie-the loss of which new veterans often tell us is the single most difficult part of their service-and help to bridge the civilian/military divide. Vettogether are one of the most effective ways for iava to build an engaged national membership with limited resources and staff.

Advocacy Programs

$966k annual program spend • Iava conducts non-partisan issue advocacy to ensure that iraq and afghanistan veterans and their families are supported, protected and never forgotten. In 2017, iava fought for all of America's veterans, defending their hard-earned education benefits and their employment opportunities, demanding accountability from the veterans administration, standing up for women veterans and more. During the year, iava's staff and members delivered congressional testimonies on issues affecting our community. Additionally, iava conducted its annual comprehensive member survey, the largest non-governmental survey, of over 4,000 members, to ascertain the most urgent policy issues facing the post-9/11 generation of veterans.

Awareness Programs

$878k annual program spend • Iava works to put new veterans at the center of the national media conversation, as the dominant voice for veterans in American media. Our goal is to connect the 99% of the population who have not serviced in iraq or afghanistan with the 1% who have. In 2017, iava staff and members were mentioned in 3,381 original television and print articles, reaching an audience of 88,935,657. These astounding efforts were supported by our extensive social media audience; in 2017, our total social media followers increased by 10% to over 710,000 total and our annual #gosilent hashtag campaign for memorial day engaged over 2 million veterans and civilian supporters, in 2017 over 7 million veterans participated in iava's first ever virtual veterans day march.
