"Our work at The Independence Fund focuses on meeting the unmet needs of catastrophically wounded Veterans, Caregivers, and their families through our personalized programming," explains TIF CEO Sarah Verardo. "This new legislation will help fill the gap of many of the most in-need and at-risk members of the families we serve, including our newly resettled Afghan Allies. We are so pleased with the work of Governor Cooper and his team to make North Carolina a leader in Veteran Service Care by passing this legislation."Most notably for the The Independence Fund's work is the appropriation of two million dollars to the No Veteran Left Behind Act, which the House passed earlier this year. These new funds will administer the Veterans Justice Intervention Program that will not solely train officers and departments in CRT but will be veteran-focused. No Veteran Left Behind's goal is to deescalate and decriminalize a Veteran's early experiences with the Criminal Justice System and explore alternative routes to traditional law enforcement responses. TIF has worked tirelessly to destigmatize mental health issues within the Veteran community, and this funding will help do just that.
