Northern Virginia Consortium for Community Development, Inc. (NVCCD), will seek funding for forty (40) proposed veterans resource centers (VRCs), located in cities around the country where there are significant populations of veterans, an active veteran’s organization, and access to a Veteran’s Administration office. The first centers will open soon in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and Jacksonville, N.C.

Washington International Sports Complex

Battle Proven Foundation, LLC (BPF) has proposed a unique way to create jobs for veterans nationwide: the building of the Washington International Sports Complex (WISC) in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. It will include a multi-use basketball facility, able to accommodate 24 simultaneous games on NCAA and FIBA regulation courts, an Olympic velodrome (cycling), the region’s only Olympic venue swimming and diving facility, at least one indoor soccer field, and a NCAA and internationally certified track and field facility.

Olympic Structures Recycling Project

Few can dispute the benefits of hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics. The boost to the local economies through the creation of jobs, utilizing local businesses for labor, supplies and services, significant image enhancement, and the creation of a “must be there” travel destination cannot be matched by any other local event.

In 2024, two cities under consideration to host the Summer Olympics are the Washington, D.C. metro area and New York City. Many years of planning and construction will be involved once a host city is selected. Little consideration appears to be given to what happens when the Olympics is over.

Mobile Veterans Service Officer Units

Veterans are entitled to a multitude of benefits and services intended to ease their transition back into civilian life.

Unfortunately, a significant number of veterans are either unaware of, or fail to apply for, those benefits. But benefits and services ranging from compensation, life insurance, pensions, financial counseling, and funding for senior care to education and training, employment services, vocational rehabilitation, medical care and mental health counseling, independent living programs for the disabled, and mortgage services, including assistance with mortgage delinquencies and foreclosures, can be the key to survival.

Command and Control Houses

According to the National Coalition for the Homeless, on any given night in America, between 130,000 and 200,000 veterans are homeless. It is now more important than ever to create and maintain programs to address those needs.

NVCCD, in cooperation with Battle Proven Foundation, LLC (BPF), will operate programs that provide basic dignities to veterans, including adequate shelter, food, the ability to launder clothing on a regular basis, and attend to personal hygiene.

Cyber-Security

computers

"Cyberspace" was once a term reserved for science fiction. No longer. Americans, American businesses, and the government are now irretrievably intertwined with the Internet. Advances in technology may have made our lives easier, but they have also created a massive target for cyber criminals, rogue nations, and those who merely wish to create chaos.

A 2013 study by the nonprofit Center for Strategic and International Studies and the computer-security firm, McAfee, set the annual cost of cyber crime and cyber espionage aimed at American business at $100 billion.
American media reported that in 2013, cyber criminals managed to:

Disaster Response

disaster response

Military veterans are specifically trained in disaster response, with skills in communications, medical services, and logistics.

Battle Proven Foundation, LLC (BPF) has proposed the creation of Global Disaster Rapid Response Teams (GDRRT) to provide the world’s first non-government coordinated effort for disaster response and relief. Whether responding to natural or man-made disasters, the initiative will rely on civilians with military experience to provide much needed aid. Veterans will work in cooperation with the United Nations, The World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Rest and Relaxation

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the members of the military have a higher divorce rate than civilians. It is essential that returning members of the U.S. Armed Forces receive the support they need to rebuild familial and marital relationships, and keep family ties strong.

Northern Virginia Consortium for Community Development, Inc. (NVCCD) and Battle Proven Foundation, LLC (BPF), are working with multiple organizations to provide recreational opportunities that will help military families alleviate the stress caused by deployment, and encourage the reestablishment of relationships among couples and family members.
