I found this organization, nay, God send, at a time that I was out of options, and almost out of hope. From the first contact, the staff was extremely attentive, and you could hear in their voices that they truly cared and wanted to help. Once I spoke to Rosetta, I knew that I was in good hands. She was such an understanding person and made the process go easily and quickly. Not only are they there for the immediate need, they provide the education that can help you in the future. I hope that in a short time I can pay a visit to Rosetta and the staff again. Not for help, but to follow in their foot steps and be there to help others. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, you have given the greatest gift a person could ever ask for; Hope.

My husband is and OIF OEF Veteran with 4 tours behind him. He is currently disabled due to his injuries. I am in between jobs at the moment and we have been struggling to stay afloat. I contacted USA Cares for assistance but didnt think we would actually receive assistance. Mrs. Darrika immediately handled our case with such grace and attention. My husband and I appreciate all efforts with this agency. We were about to have our electric and water disconnected but because of Darrika's quick response and assistance provided we will stay warm for the holidays and get back on track. Thank you Darrika and USA Cares you guys are AMAZING!!! - A Veteran Family

I cannot thank USA Cares enough. What they did for me and my family really was amazing. It is so hard to ask for help and when I finally got the nerve to ask they were patient, understanding, and non judgemental. It is organizations like this that make all the difference in people's lives. Thank you!!!

I reached out to USA cares at a time of need and they showed me that there are people that not only care for our great veterans but value our contributions to this great nation. I will forever be thankful for the prompt service and willing to help a fallen veteran in my time of need. I will definitely spread the word about USA Cares!!!!!

Darrika,
You and USA Cares Inc. has been a blessing to myself and my family. You have assisted us when we were down. Your kind caring heart made it possible for my children to have a Christmas this year, by assisting us in our time of need. It was you who made sure that you did everything possible for us. USA Cares Inc., has hired you and saw that you have a great passion for assisting veterans and their families and I glad that you were there for us. Thanks again and may blessing shine on upon you.

My husband is a disabled combat vet and we were having problems paying our mortgage due to medical issues. We were told about this organization, USA Cares, that could help us. Darrika helped us through the process in a very timely manner. She stayed in contact with us and helped us get approved for help with our mortgage. We are so thankful for all the help we recieved from Darrika and USA Cares! It's a wonderful organization that really helps people in need! Thank you!

Ms. darrika is amazing she helped me in a time when I thought there was no hope. she followed thru on the entire case and made sure she followed up with companies we were working with. Customer service always at a all time high. These are the type of agencies and agents we should gave world wide as veterans. Someone should be looking to out her in a supervisor position. She helped save my dream!

My husband is a 100 percent disabled OIF OEF veteran and Purple Heart recipient. He was medically retired in 2010 after 3 tours. We have a 6 year old son with bad vision issues and it cost us a fortune. We live every month choosing on getting him the help he needs or paying our bills. We stretch every month to make sure he has what he needs to see. I applied for help with USA cares and was denied assistance within an hour. No reason... just a no. Thank God for Semper Fi fund who called me right away. Let me just vent and let out some frustration and helped me right away. This was months ago and they still contact me all the time to see if we need anything. You want to know what makes a family with a wounded veteran feel worse than the pain he is going through? Having an orginization pretend to care just to ignore you when you are in need.
