Our Story

First Veterans Resource & Transitional Center, (FVRTC) A Division of Our Parent Organization 1st Veterans Kids Care Inc., a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization, was born out of a child’s act of kindness that touched a father’s heart.

When Anton Cardinal was fifteen years old, Unknowing to his parents he took his saved allowances and donated those funds to an organization that helps children who are fighting the effects of cancer and who were also in need of food and clothing. His selfless act led his father, Anthony Cardinal, to pursue helping those in need by creating this organization FVRTC.

Many people talk about the things they wish they could do for those less fortunate, but the Cardinal family has actually put actions behind Anton’s intentions and brought to life an organization that is viable and desirable, an organization that shows what a significant impact an individual with a HEART TO HELP can make in their communities and in our great country.
