Kristy Kaufmann // Executive Director / Co-Founder // Code of Support Foundation
On this week’s episode of Through the Noise, host Ernesto Gluecksmann is flying solo as he talks to returning guest Kristy Kaufmann, Executive Director and co-founder of the Code of Support Foundation. One year after her first appearance, Kristy has a lot of great new stuff to share about all things non-profit.
Join Ernesto and Kristy as they talk about the US military veteran services provided by the nonprofit Code of Support Foundation. Kristy talks extensively about the Foundation’s coordinating of veteran support services, as well as what it means to help military families in times of need. She also discusses the growth and sustainability of a large-scale nonprofit, public perception and transparency, as well as treating a nonprofit like a business with employees, investors and product.
Kristy has served as an advocate for military and veteran families for over 12 years and is a subject matter expert regarding the mental health impacts of war on military families. Her publications and media appearances include the Washington Post, New York Times, NPR, CNN, NBC and ABC. Kristy has been a speaker and panelist at numerous conferences across the country, and has addressed congress about the gaps in military mental health challenges facing military and veteran family members.
The Code of Support Foundation (COSF) provides essential and critical one-on-one assistance to those struggling service members, veterans and their families (SMVF) who have the most complex needs. We are dedicated to leveraging the nation’s full spectrum of resources to ensure all members of our military, veterans and their families receive the support services they need and, through their collective sacrifice, have earned.
