AVB is a Certified 501(c)(3) non-profit veteran service organization that offers the “ONLY” ALL Armed Forces Service Ball in the country. The AVB was created to provide “ALL” veterans of the “Armed Forces” with the opportunity to participate in an annual service ball similar to our active service components. The most common denominator we discovered was that once we’d transitioned out of our respective branches of service, there was an immediate disconnection with these traditional and customary events of shared comradeship, which we’ve always treasured. Yet, despite this disconnection, whether in or out of the uniform, we still live out our instilled values and way of life as active leaders in our communities, workplace, and in every daily good endeavor we perform.
At the heart of AVB lies our MISSION, which is to honor veterans, preserve their legacies, prevent veteran suicide, and provide advocacy for a systemic antidote that plagues veterans post-active service.
Our VISION enables us to achieve this mission by providing vital assistance and outreach programs for underserved homeless veterans, including case management, crisis intervention, gainful employment support, stabilized affordable housing, access to immediate care, education & training, recreational activities, family unification counseling, and mental health services while empowering them to live out a passionate, and purposefully driven life post-active service.
Our GOAL helps us accomplish our vision by CONNECTING our PAST and PRESENT military professionals to the FUTURE LEADERS of America. AVB fulfills our mission, vision, and goals by establishing a pathway to reignite and foster our shared comradeship and patriotism alongside our fellow veterans through this distinctive event that will endure for years. Our comprehensive approach embodies a seamless and complete generational torch-passing initiative that encapsulates the full circle of our commitment to our younger generation.
The AVB platform serves as a beacon of light and inspiration for our PASSION & PURPOSE ambitions, embodying the role of a LIGHTHOUSE committed to serving and protecting our focused populations as our VOCATIONAL CALLING. We cordially invite you to partake in the celebration and commemoration of our enduring legacies. AVB welcomes “ALL” veterans – whether active, reserves, separated, or retired – along with their esteemed guests, the dedicated civilian supporting arms, and the wider public. The proceeds from this event will be channeled towards invaluable veteran initiatives, JROTC programs, assistance for children of fallen service veterans, youth leadership camps, inspiring educational scholarships, and future AVB endeavors. Your support is paramount as we unite to realize our fostering fellowship and extend HONOR and a SALUTE to our esteemed HEROES and SHEROES, forming a collective and meaningful SHARED COMMUNITY & PATRIOTIC INVESTMENT.
