MOAACC Luncheon Guest Speaker, George Taylor, Jr, President & Board Chair - NVHS Organizational Overview


Tuesday 15, 2022 - IRCC Colony Hall, 1130

George Taylor Jr is the President & Board Chair of National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS). George Taylor Jr is our March Speaker and he discussed issues facing at-risk and homeless veterans and how NVHS addresses these issues.

George Taylor Jr is the President & Board Chair of National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS), a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to Eliminate Homelessness Among Veterans in Central Florida, located in Cocoa.  In this role he is responsible for ensuring that the organization achieves their mission by getting homeless veterans off the streets and preventing at-risk veteran families from losing their homes. 

Since he first joined the organization as their CFO in 2008, NVHS has been instrumental in a 90% reduction in the homeless veteran population in Brevard County.  Additionally, he also currently serves in the US Air Force as the Helicopter Maintenance Unit Superintendent in a Combat Rescue squadron located at Patrick Space Force Base, Florida, where he holds the rank of Chief Master Sergeant.  During his 20 years in the Air Force he has deployed several times in support of the Global War on Terrorism and Operation Enduring Freedom.  George holds an MBA from Florida International University, and a Bachelors in Operations Management from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.

MOAACC partnered with NVHS to ensure the MOAA Grant funds went to deserving local veterans and their families. The MOAACC, Good Deeds Foundation also supports NVHS. This is a great opportunity to learn more about one of the organizations we support and how it impacts our community. Our new relationship with NVHS began in 2021 when growing numbers of Brevard veterans struggled to keep up with bills and avoid homelessness. Between the MOAA grant of $3,750 and the GDF $1,600, NVHS assisted nine veteran families with more than 12 children. It will likely be an important connection for MOAACC and GDF for years to come as we try to assist more veterans and their families in distress.
