Mission:

The Coalition to Salute America''s Heroes, started in 2004, as a way to help the transition process for the wounded and disabled war on terror Veteran population. The organization helps to augment the support provided by the military and the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Labor.

Target demographics:

veterans disabled in the war on terror

Direct beneficiaries per year:

veterans from all over the United States with emergency aid

Geographic areas served:

throughout the United States

Programs:

The mission of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes is to help severely-wounded veterans and families of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom recover from their injuries and illnesses, and to inspire other organizations and the general public to participate in this effort. Through our programs of aid and assistance, the Coalition offers individual contributors, corporations and volunteers many ways to give so these veterans and their families receive what they need and deserve in return for the sacrifices they made for us. Restoring hope to a wounded hero can take a lifetime. Rebuilding his or her life takes a commitment from all of us. You can help do both by making a direct tax-deductible contribution, an in-kind donation or by volunteering your time. If we work together, we can succeed in our mission, and the men and women who were heroes on the battlefield can return home as heroes to their families and communities.

I'm a veteran who has been honorably discharged and currently facing a financial hardship. I discovered this organization online, and decided to reach out for assistant. i was directed to complete an online application. While filling out the application, the system kept prompting me that I was not eligible because I did not meet ONE OR MORE of the following criteria: *disabled veteran with 30% or more disability rating
*honorable discharge (which I meet)
*service connected injury from OIF/OEF
*facing servere financial hardship (which I meet)

I then called the office to explain to them how the system kept promoting me, and the head of veteran services there kept trying to say that I didn't meet the requirements. After I explained to her that I did meet two of the four requirements, she began to speak to me as if I were a child, not understanding what the website stated. I guess my complaint is, unless you are disabled, or have a service connected injury, you will not be helped from this organization. I wish they'd clear up the miscommunication, and convey that they will only help disabled and service connected veterans only, instead of having other (non disabled) veterans who have served their country as well, waste time trying to find help at a place where they have no intentions to assist.

I was in a process of getting evicted from our apartment and "Coalition support America's heroes" stepped in to assist me and my family, even after that the organization continued to send me and my family cards to let us know that we are in their minds and heart.......truly a great organization that cares those who served

The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes helped my family tremendously after my husband lost 3 limbs while serving in Afghanistan. They were able to provide me, as a caregiver, part-time employment from home so that I am able to be home to assist my veteran with his every day needs. This is truly an awesome, caring organization that REALLY does provide excellent opportunities and resources to veterans and family members.

I became aware of Coalition to salute Americans heroes through another Marine Corps veteran that served in Iraq with my husband. At the time I had little hope of receiving any help from any group so when I filled out what I needed to fill out, I didn't expect much to come out of it. However much to my surpise it didn't take much time for them to answer me back and help in the way that they did. This group was amazing back then and continue to be amazing to this day by thier continue help. My family and I thank them from the bottom of all our hearts.

The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes helped our family with holiday gift cards for family meals. They have also helped several friends with emergency funds to get food, keep electricity on and supply basic needs when unexpected expenses arose. They also give free educational resources for Vets and caregivers that might not otherwise be available.

We are parents of a wounded warrior and Coalition To Salute America's Heroes is helping us with a gift of plane tickets to go see our wounded warrior. He was wounded during a deployment and it has been a year now for his recovery.It has been a long road with struggles and many tears. We are so excited to get to see him and his family! If it wasn't for this organization and their gift, we wouldn't be able to see him! We have a few things planned for this family visit. The biggest thing being a visit to an aquarium and down to the simple thing of a family cooked meal and spending time with each other. We can't wait to hug and kiss all of them!
We want to give a big "THANK YOU" to this organization for their generous gift because we now get to spend time as a FAMILY!

My husband is a wounded soldier and we was told hero miles no longer helps out if at a duty station for a long period of time with that being said this organization came to the rescue and helped provide my in laws tickets to come and visit us. Without this help they wouldn't have been able to come visit and the process of him getting out is taking a while and it means so much to have this help in these circumstances. We appreciate it and will forever be grateful. Thank you!
