I was hesitant, initially, when I was told about USA Cares. I'm a disabled vet who had surgery on a service connected disability. Due to the surgery and recovery, I found trying to recover and work to pay my bills, a challenge. To this day, I'm still recovering. My surgery was in August. I contacted USA Cares, someone was assigned my claim and the rest is history. It did take sometime. I had to follow up a couple times. On the flip side to that. I also didn't take into consideration how many other people these wonderful people help. I am beyond grateful. Without their help, I don't know what I'd have done. Thank you SO much, USA Cares!!!

USA Cares is the most incredible veterans assistance agency I have encountered. When I needed help they were there and made the process simple and stress free. My caseworker did not judge and was very helpful with any hickups I encountered. I was not afforded the opportunity to finish a valid Medical separation and had no time to plan how to cover bills. I had 10 days to do things most have 6-12 months to do. They expediently assisted with my car and insurance payment and that allowed me to focus more on seeking employment and preparing for an appeal of what happened while I was active duty. I will surely let anyone I know who may need services and is eligible that there is an organization that keeps to its mission and comes through for this country's veterans. Thank you so much.

Thank you USA cares for coming through for me and my family in time of need. I am a recently separated veteran, without a job and needed help with my bills and mortgage. I submitted an application to USA Cares and within 24 hours I was contacted by a case officer -Marlo. She was very polite and genuinely willing to help. She went to work right away and provided prompt feedback along the way. Application was approved within a couple days and they went above and beyond to get us taken care of. We are really thankful to US Cares for their help and support to the veteran community. God Bless.

How does one begin to express their gratitude to an organization such as USA CARES. USA CARES stepped up to the plate in the middle of a really tough time in our life. They kept us from goin homeless. My husband and I really appreciate all the help and direction of support we were given. We WILL pay it forward in the near future! THANK YOU USA CARES for a little bit of HOPE when we didn't have any!

I was hesitant when I applied thinking I wouldn't be helped. But I was so wrong USA CARES really do care. They go above and beyond. I needed help with my car note due to waiting in my VA Benefits and losing my job after suffering a stroke. Thank you and the terrific team you have. I was exceptionally impressed by the process and speed. It took under three days.

I sent in my request to get help with rent after leaving the Navy and I really didn't think it would get approved, however I really did need it and now I am so happy the request was approved because it has truly helped me out. There needs to be more services that help out military members financially. Getting out of the military can be a smooth transition with proper planning, however life happens and there really are not a lot of places that will financially help you. Thank you.

All of us plan great plans and prosperous life full of happiness. Life is not like we plan. I had transitioned from the Army with 9 years of honorable to the civilian life as a single dad of two sweet little boys Christian and Chase. I had set a plan prior to transitioning for job security but the area I lived in the area is low in jobs that would offer descent pay and health insurance coverage. Thankfully I was able to serve my community again and have a career as a correction officer in the county i live in. Well the financial stability was not the same as when I was in the military. I began to make partial payments to keep up with bills but unfortunatetly I have fallen behind. I was in desperate need of help and I was at the end of the road to being Homless and having to figure out what I was going to do about my children. I called the VA Homless veteran hot line and explained to them that I was unfortunately unable to keep up with my rent and utilities due the change if income. I talk to veteran affairs representative who guide me with various organizations that could assist in which I was blessed by the help of Mrs.Marlo and the USA Care organization. My boys and I are blessed to be at ease through the help of this great organization. Thank you again Mrs. Marlo and USA Cares.
