The Project

The Center for Veterans Advancement (CVA) is driven by its core principle to “uphold our nation’s promise to veterans and their families.” CVA meets its mission by providing veterans with legal services, which helps stabilize the living situation of veterans and their families. As a national leader in veteran’s advocacy, the CVA represents veterans and their families before state and federal courts, including the VA. The CVA also administers one of the largest pro bono advocacy programs in the nation. The CVA also works to effect systemic change in order to help veterans overcome or escape homelessness, poverty, and loss of quality of life.
