Reviews for Salute Inc
I am the psychologist in a crisis-focused intensive mental health treatment program in the Chicago VA system. My team and I regularly use Salute Inc to seek emergency assistance for our veteran clients, who present with a range of serious crises that truly require rapid intervention and support. I have consistently found Salute Inc to be a caring and reliable resource for these "wounded warriors". The staff are always efficient and supportive, and the process is extremely user-friendly, from initial application to disposition. My job would be a lot harder without this organization; Salute Inc consequently has a top spot in my virtual "rolodex"!
I am a Social Worker in the largest Combat PTSD Residential Program in the country. I had a Persian Gulf War Veteran - married - one child - in our 90 day hospital/residential Program. He had some unexpected unfortunate circumstances that left him searching for housing. He found housing and was under the impression that his church would help with costs. He moved his family out of one home and into another. He did not have enough money to move in and was being forced to leave again. SALUTE came to the rescue. I rarely have to assist Patient's in finding financial resources. I was given list after list. Almost all were only helping OIF/OEF. Salute was kind, understanding and AMAZING! They rescued this very sweet family. I am in awe at their generoisity and kindness. THANK YOU SALUTE!!!!!!!!
