I chose to do a case analysis on the nonprofit organization, Wounded Warrior Project. My wife and I once were big donation supporters of the Wounded Warrior Project since I am a combat veteran and many of my peers who were severally injured rely on nonprofit organizations like Wounded Warriors. Unfortunately, in March of 2016 reports came out that the Wounded Warrior Project had been misrepresenting how the nonprofit’s funds and the donations were being spent. Even though the Wounded Warrior Project has made bold adjustments to the nonprofit organization, many supporters felt heartbroken from the deception and misuse of our donations. In light of the internal issues of the nonprofit, the Wounded Warrior Project as a whole still

In this paper I will give facts on how terrible this problem really is, whether it is our homeless Veterans, Veterans who die waiting for help from the VA because they cannot afford other healthcare, or the horrid waiting times in order to get any help.
The issue of veteran benefits in the United States is not taken as seriously as it should be in our country, even though it is a growing problem that needs to be addressed. The lack of available funding for veterans is especially obvious when compared to that available for lower income citizens, or even illegal immigrants. Also, what does exist appears to fall short in taking care of veteran’s needs. Considering that these veterans are people who have risked their lives fighting for this country, the fact that they are not receiving immediate benefits or even what they have earned is unfair. The VA needs to change the way it deals with Veterans and their bout with homelessness, consistent and worthwhile employment, and mental
This nation has struggled with getting a handle of this problem and putting adequate supports in place to resolve the problem. Veterans need to have the right supports in place to prevent this. The veterans’ services need to be comprehensive supports, and in place as soon as a soldier transitions to civilian life. Discharged veterans need more specific and efficient non-criteria based services including transitional services, higher education and homelessness prevention.

One of the main contributors to homelessness is unemployment, where veterans often lack the skills that many nonmilitary people have

The organization I work for, Starbucks is highly diversified. In my opinion, Starbucks successfully employs each of the seven diversity components: “authentic leadership commitment, clear organizational communication, inclusive recruitment practices, long-term retention strategies, incorporating diversity into main work of the organization, diversity management metrics, and expansive external relationships” (CanÌas, Sondak 2014). With that being said, Starbucks could improve by incorporating diversity into main work of the organization.
Before we implemented our opioid addiction and rehabilitation service, it was important for us to examine what obstacles we might face and need to overcome as well as what we might be able use in our favor to help with our service.

As a student one of my strengths is organization. I can say I can keep my school materials and notebooks organized in a way that I and others can comprehend.
