Prevent a crisis
Military families consistently list financial issues as their top stressor. The Emergency Financial Assistance program addresses the unique financial stressors faced by service-disabled post-9/11 combat veterans and their caregivers. Here’s how:
Emergency Financial Assistance. We provide temporary emergency financial assistance for rent, mortgage, utilities or car payments to prevent a near term challenge from becoming a lifechanging crisis.
Caregiver Support. We support caregivers with childcare assistance and short-term educational expenses.
Financial Education. Financial literacy counseling with each beneficiary builds future financial stability.
Emergency Response. We also provide emergency financial assistance in response to events such as the 2017 hurricanes in Puerto Rico and the 2019 government shutdown. In 2020, we were the first national veterans service organization to launch a COVID-19 emergency financial relief program. We help those still in uniform to focus on their duty free of financial worry and our veterans to realize the financial stability and opportunity that they deserve after serving our Nation.
