Retired Due to Multiple Injuries
$1,893 Still Needed
Fractures to his skull, back arm and leg are all factors that led to this soldier and single father of two being medically retired last month. Yet to receive his retirement pay of VA benefits, he has been unable to meet his expenses and worries how he will keep a roof over the head of his children and food on the table during the holidays. With your support, we can ease his mind by assisting with rent, utilities, and groceries.
Combat Veteran Facing Crisis

Help us give back this holiday by assisting with rent and groceries for the family.
Tough Time for Air Force Family
$200 Still Needed

More Surgery and Missed Work
$423 Still Needed
This medically retired veteran had to have additional surgery for his service connected injuries, and he was denied short term disability due to the condition being pre-existing. Out of work for a month, right before the holidays, has created a great deal of stress. With your help, we can eliminate some of this family's concerns by assisting with their car payment.
PCS Loss Hits Active Duty Mom Hard
$300 Still Needed
After permanently changing duty stations, this active duty Mom of three girls discovered some of her household goods were lost or missing. This required her to replace critical items such as winter coats and other items. She also cares for her mother, who has been ill. The financial strain has been tough on the family and they are worried about having enough food in the home until they are reimbursed. Please helps us bring them some comfort this holiday season by assisting with groceries.
Soldier And Spouse Injured
$1,482 Still Needed
Just recently medically retired, this soldier was already trying to cope with transition and long list of injuries when his wife was injured on the job. The difficulty of transition and the lack of income have placed a severe strain on the family. They are receiving help from a partner organization for housing, but need help with utility and payments on their only vehicle. Let's work together to get the family on the right track heading into the New Year.
Loss At The Holidays
$250 Still Needed
Losing your mother is hard to cope with and even harder at the holidays. This soldier also had to assist with the cost of her services, and this has placed a significant burden on the family of 5 at a very emotional time for them. Help us provide some comfort by assisting with groceries so they can have a holiday meal and more while they get back on their feet.
Frightening Year For Army Family
$3,822 Still Needed
It has been a frightening year for this Army family. After being medically evacuated, then spending months at Walter Reed, this soldier is home and recuperating, but still needs significant help in day-to-day functions. His wife is his caregiver, and she and his son need critical dental work. Please help us ensure they aren't burdened with more than they already are by assisting with dental costs and mortgage payment.
VA Wait Creates Hardship
$1,059 Still Needed
This Purple Heart recipient and combat veteran was recently medically retired by the Army at 100% disabled. He is awaiting final VA determination, which he expects to receive by year end. His spouse is his caregiver, but cannot apply for benefits until the VA determination is made. The time elapsed has created a financial strain on the family of 6. With your support, they can welcome the New Year with some peace of mind.
Needs Overwhelm Injured Soldier
$486 Still Needed
This injured soldier and father of four is due to be medically retired shortly. Uncertainty about the future combined with large dental bills and car repairs were already stressing the family when another critical car repair need arose. Having spent much of their funds already, they don't have what they need to make their vehicle safe. Help us get them on the road to the next chapter in their life.
Help Keep Home Warm in Winter
$258 Still Needed
A recent decline in this Army veteran's health has caused him to have to withdraw from his school program temporarily. Some of his expenses we recouped, and while he hopes those costs will be reimbursed, the expense has left the family in a bind for heating oil as winter approaches. With your support, we can keep their home warm as they focus on his health and getting him back on his feet.
Combat Engineer Struggles
$759 Still Needed
Having served as a combat engineer in Afghanistan, this medically retired soldier continues to suffer from the residual effects of his brain injury and PTSD. Though he is unable to work, he manages as well as he can, unless something unexpected happens. That was the case with repairs to his car, which used up the small amount of funds he had available. Please help us make sure he doesn't lose his vehicle so he can get to and from critical medical appointments.
Tough To Adjust After Deployment
$1,678 Still Needed
After returning from his deployment to Afghanistan, this Air Force Reservist could not find work for some time, causing the family to rely on their savings. Though he has now been able to secure employment, medical bills and a depleted savings account has left the family struggling to make ends meet this month. Please help us get this family back on their feet as we head into the New Year.
Going Around With Paperwork
$671 Still Needed
This recently medically retired soldier has repeatedly submitted paperwork to the VA so that his compensation will reflect that he has a family, but he has been unsuccessful in correcting their error. His injuries are too severe for him to work, and being only compensated as if he were single has meant a tough time making ends meet. He has been assured the error will be corrected in the next two months, but for now, the family is worried about keeping the lights on and groceries in the cupboard.
When Caregivers Need Help
$710 Still Needed
Our caregivers are the heroes behind the heroes, but when their health is in jeopardy, then the family soon is in crisis. When the spouse of this wounded Marine had to have multiple heart surgeries, they found themselves also in a financial crisis, and weren't able to keep up with their car payments. This is their only vehicle and they need it now more than ever. Help us ensure they will have reliable transportation by assisting with car payments.
Pay Error Not Resolved
$360 Still Needed
This soldier has had two surgeries since returning from overseas, and is currently awaiting a medical board. An error in the submission of his travel paperwork resulted in finance recouping a large amount of pay from him erroneously. They are working to correct the problem, but he does not know when that will happen. Please help us keep a roof over his head while he gets the situation sorted.
Added Costs For Adapted Vehicle
$536 Still Needed
This combat veteran of the Iraq War was recently assisted by the VA with obtaining a specially adapted vehicle that will accommodate his significant injuries. A paperwork error by the dealership resulted in a large tax bill being assessed to the family, and since this was their only vehicle, they had to pay it in order to register the vehicle. This has placed significant financial strain on the family. With your help, we can alleviate that burden by assisting with rent and utilities.
Many military families have faced eviction or foreclosure due to unexpected changes that affect their finances. Transitioning wounded service members may see a pay decrease once their military pay stops and their disability benefits begin. Help families keep a roof over their heads.
Pay The Electric Bill of a Military Family
Your donation of just $200 could provide power for a month to a military family in need or ensure that power is kept on for wounded warriors who need medical equipment for survival.
Help Feed A Military Family
We assist struggling military families by providing food boxes, grocery gift certificates, or vouchers to the commissary. Each family is provided enough food for a week while case workers help them find long-term solutions. Your $20 gift can give a hot meal to a military family.
Help A Warrior Transition To Civilian Life
Our young returning veterans are at risk of becoming homeless if they don't get help transitioning to civilian life. We offer free housing for wounded service members and their families to live during the transition process. These families get extra help to prepare and move to a place of their own.
Help Keep Essential Vehicle Rolling
Getting around is hard when your car is being repaired, but imagine trying to get around with a significant injury and add 2-3 medical appointments a day. Some wounded service members do not have enough money to fix their vehicles. Your donations can help heroes with much-needed repairs.
Provide Comfort For Military Family
What happens when a military spouse turns on the water to bathe a child and finds no hot water? The repair might have been feasible when their service member was home but due to deployment or injury recovery that is no longer possible. You can help make a difference.
Send a Caregiver To A Retreat
Caregivers are essential to the successful recovery of our heroes wounded in combat. But they need to get away, connect with others in their unique situation and rejuvenate.
