Waiting For Paperwork to Clear

Help For Marine and Caregiver

Recovering From Knee Surgery
$2,588 Still Needed
After successfully rehabilitating his knee from a previous injury, this Army Reservist re-injured it during training, requiring him to have surgery and miss significant amounts of work.

Health Setback For Father & Son
$502 Still Needed
This US Army veteran, who served and was injured in Iraq, has had a long road to recovery, with several setbacks.

Help Keep Home Safe and Warm
$1,238 Still Needed
The roof of this wounded Army soldier's home was leaking and badly in need of repair.

Temporary Relocation From Home
$250 Still Needed
Water and mold damage to their kitchen has forced this active duty Navy family to temporarily relocate until the repairs can be made.

We would like to help them get through this temporary transition by assisting with groceries for the family.
Holiday Transition Made Tougher
$1,169 Still Needed
Transitioning out of the service can be stressful in and of itself. To do so with a traumatic brain injury and PTSD from your service in Afghanistan, and to do so at the holidays can make it tougher to bear.

Please help us give them some peace of mind by assisting with housing and grocery expenses.
Missing Work to Care For Husband

Paperwork Chase Drains Finances
$3,190 Still Needed
After a tour in Afghanistan, this soldier and mother of three was medically retired. Her vocational rehabilitation paperwork was delayed again and again, resulting in a significant period of time elapsing where she was not receiving funding for housing.

Hospital Stay and Lost Income

Mold Forces Sudden Move
$1,810 Still Needed

Soldier Faces Two Challenges
$937 Still Needed

Please consider helping the family through this difficult time by assisting with rent and car payments, so they can focus on bringing their soldier home to heal.
Help For One Who Cared For Many
$593 Still Needed
This soldier served two tours in Iraq, where he ensured that those we lost were treated with dignity and respect before coming home. Despite lingering injuries, he is determined to move forward into the next chapter of his life. A recent delay in benefit payments for his housing while in school has thrown a roadblock up for him and his family. We can help give back to him for his dedication to his brothers and sisters in arms by assisting with rent, groceries and utilities.
Still Waiting for Compensation
$1,295 Still Needed
Medically retired this July, this OIF/OEF veteran soldier has yet to receive his first retirement payment or a decision from the Veterans Administration.

Please help us keep them in their home until the situation stabilizes.
Pay Gap During Transition

Murphy's Law of Deployment
$3,385 Still Needed
Many challenges have faced this Navy family since the sailor deployed this summer. A pay delay combined with an error in their mortgage paperwork meant not only less income, but a significant increase in the cost of their housing. Though all are being corrected, the family has to bear the cost until then, and it has left the family at risk of losing their home. Help us ease the mind of this deployed sailor so he knows that his family at home is safe and well.
