Student Veterans of AmericaFounded in 2008, SVA is a national coalition of student veterans organizations, known as SVA chapters, on more than 1,000 college and university campuses in all 50 states and 3 countries overseas. These chapters are the "boots on the ground” that provide a peer-to-peer support network to help veterans reintegrate into campus life and succeed academically. Chapters are also catalysts for positive change – often advocating for veteran-friendly policies and bridging the civilian-military divide.
The Home Depot Foundation’s support has enabled SVA chapters to build or refurbish on-campus Veteran Resource Centers that serve a school’s entire veteran population. These centers are recognized as a best practice for improving student veteran success. Typically, they serve as SVA chapter meeting locations, study halls, group counseling centers, offices for centralizing on-campus veteran resources, and “safe spaces” that foster greater interactions between student veterans.
