Who We Are

Our Organization

1.  The El Paso County Colorado Progressive Veterans is an IRS vetted and approved 501(c)4 Social Welfare Veterans nonprofit organization.  We focus on the many ways that we can help our Veterans, Active Duty Military and their families. Our website has over 100 Veteran support groups listed, with hot links to the appropriate websites. These include everything from homeless solutions, FREE trained support dogs, FREE scuba diving lessons and even how to get FREE Colorado license plates. We have also included excellent information on how to apply for VA Healthcare and Disability Benefits.  Click the RESOURCE Button for more information.


2. We give a voice to El Paso County Colorado Veterans, Active Duty Military and their families. To do this effectively, we need to have our voice in Washington DC.  For us to be heard, we need numbers ... in other words, a large number of members. There are NO dues or meetings.  Mem-bership is strictly confidential and our membership numbers are used only for communicating with Congress, their leadership and the VA.  Click the About Us button above to learn more about membership and the benefits that membership offers.


3. We don't stop there. We are raising money to increase our membership by running communication ads in various media.  Veterans won't find us just by word of mouth.  Additionally, we do have some operational expenses, such as this website.  We have no paid staff or rent and Board members are not compensated.  Please donate.  Our Donate button has a hot link to make this easy.  A 501(c)4 can NOT donate to candidates or political parties, but we do endorse candidates and political parties.  Our current endorsements are located under the About Us button.

the Platinum Seal, the highest award they give.

The Platinum Seal is the highest award GuideStar gives to any nonprofit.

99 VA Disability Presumptives (automatically awarded if you qualify)

Are you currently receiving VA Disability Benefits?  Or, do you think you may have a claim for Disability benefits?  Have you received a new diagnosis that you think might be related to your military service?  Click the RESOURCES Button to view 99 VA Disability Presumptives (in other words, automatically given).  These disability benefits need to be tied to your service in some way - that is what your VSO is for.  Some are obvious, some not so much.  And always keep in mind that the VA Health Care providers are NOT allowed to suggest that you apply for benefits if you are diagnosed with a Presumptive.  This is YOUR responsibility.


And always keep in mind that these are EARNED benefits.  These are benefits that will help your spouse and your children.  If you don't want to apply for yourself, think of them.
