In 2005 when I was 1st injured my family and I struggled with bills and food and not knowing where we were going to stay after a honorable discharge but 0% from the Army. My wife and I continued to work various jobs to make ends meet. In 2008 we where fortunate enough to receive help from the Coalition to Salute Americas Heroes in which they payed our late payments on rent and utility bills that helped get us through the cold winters in Colorado. They also invited our family to attend a Road to Recovery conference which helped provide workshops and seminars to help get us back on track with sustainability for our future. Myself and my wife where both asked to be a part of a program within the Coalition to Salute Americas Heroes organization in the capacity of a call representative where we made thank you calls to our generous donor's that helped with our financial dilemma in 2005. If it was not for the Coalition to Salute Americas Heroes I don't know where we would be today. They have helped us sustain work and residency and we are very grateful that they continue to do this for many more veterans and their families. I also want to add how disheartening it is to see how some Veterans or spouses have tried to blemish this great organization after being helped themselves by them. I only pray that they will come to realize when they struggled this organization was there for them.
They have given me hope and a job where I work from home. This job allows me to be home with my wounded warrior and taking care of him. They helped with money for Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas. They are amazing people and really do want to help our veterans and their families.
The Coalition has provided a unique opportunity for veterans and their caregivers leaving their branch of Service. They are stepping in and providing not only emergency financial aid, but a community and family that so many are missing when they leave active duty. As the caregiver of a disabled veteran I can not speak highly enough about everything the Coalition To Salute Americas Heroes has done for us. Without them, their great programs, including the Road To Recovery, The Heroes Thanking Heroes Program and The Veterans Circle we would still twisting in the wind trying to navigate our way through post military life.
The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes was there for us during a time of need and I have nothing but good things to say about the wonderful staff. They treated us with the upmost respect and made us feel like family.
The Coalition has been nothing less than amazing. When I got back from Iraq, I was twisting in the wind. I had a house but no furniture, I was alone and hated everyone and trusted no one. My Army Wounded Warrior advocate put me in contact with them and, despite me telling them, in less than polite terms, to go away, they still reached out. From a bed that I still sleep on to actually putting groceries in my fridge, it gave me a start that I used to move forward.
I can't thank them enough. They truly put veterans first which makes sense since most of them are veterans.
Greatest help us wounded service members have at our side! Was right there when we needed help after vandals destroyed my vehicle. They saved us!!!! Thank you
The Coalition to Salute America's heroes helped my family when we were about to fall apart. My husband was severely injured in Afghanistan when he stepped on an IED. Life became very difficult at a rapid speed and I began experiencing depression that could have easily torn apart my family as I was at my breaking point. I was told about the Heroes Thanking Heroes program and this was truly an answer to my prayers. Being able to work from home so that I can still assist my husband with his daily living activities is an opportunity that NO other organization offers our Veterans/Caregivers. I had became so wrapped up in caring for my family that I forgot about myself. I lost communication with those close to me and refused to ask for help. The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes was there for me in my greatest time of need and continues to be there for my family on a daily basis. I didn't have to ask for assistance because they offered me a part-time job. I've seen first hand the wonderful work/programs that are being offered to our Veterans and I can truly say that my heart is completely with the organization entirely. And what credibility do I have!? I am the proud wife and caregiver of a triple amputee Veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom. I live the life of a wounded warrior family every second of every day. I stand by my husband proudly which may have not been the outcome had I not found the love, support, and guidance of the wonderful staff with the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes.
I am a caregiver to a wounded marine and the coalition helped my family when we needed it the most. The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes is a wonderful organization that continues to support wounded veterans and their families. I have been blessed by the Coalition many times over and I can't say enough how much they have helped my family and other families like mine. Thank you for all you have done for us, we are forever grateful.
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.
