JACKSONVILLE, Fla., September 26, 2013 –FIVE S.T.A.R. Veterans Center has received the signed Letter of Consent and has entered into a Settlement Agreement with Florida’s Office of the Attorney General and the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
FIVE S.T.A.R. Veterans Center is recognized as a legitimate charitable organization that assists veterans through housing, retraining and reintegration services and access to medical, psychological, educational and other services available to veterans and authorized by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Formally known as Allied Veterans Center, Five S.T.A.R. reorganized in June, 2013 following the arrests of several members of their major donor, Allied Veterans of the World, Inc.
Five S.T.A.R. has been struggling to keep their doors open since the investigation into Allied Veterans of the World began. Potential donors, fearing any money given to the center would be confiscated as part of the on-going investigation against Allied Veterans of the World, Inc., withheld their contributions.
Staff members have been working 40 plus hours a week without pay. Other staff had to be released. The 20 plus veterans currently living at the center worried each day would be their last at the center and they would be living on the streets again. Five S.T.A.R. also had to stop taking in new residents.
The Settlement Agreement between the State of Florida, the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and Five S.T.A.R. Veterans Center guarantees the center and all its properties will remain free and clear of any action by the State of Florida or the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and will not be subject to future lien, seizure, or forfeiture.
