I don't know if this is a sham, but it reads that way to me. I requested assistance from them for my power bill due to being unemployed for months and my request was denied. I am disappointed but not angry at the denial. I am however disappointed in the sham of a reason for denial. They said I do not qualify because they only offer assistance for veterans within 4 months of discharge. Not only does it not say that on the application, do they really believe that combat veterans suffering from PTSD or physical disabilities, only have issues within 4 months of discharge! Come up with a better lie!

Waste of time - should change their name to "USA Doesn't Care" - look them up on the BBB website.

Things have been very difficult for me since I was got out of the military three years ago .I haven't been able to get a full time job as I was going back to school to complete my bachelors degree in Business management . I completed the degree program in december 2014 ,I was on educational allowance then from my GI Bill,but abruptly after I finished the program and graduated,all my financial assistance ceased . I was at a financial loss for the past three months as I wasn’t receiving any income. I had to use whatever little I had on my bank account and tax refund to make up for the bills but it wasn't enough because I still had mortgage to pay. Thats when I decide to call USA CARES. The program helped me get back in good standing with my utility bills. I am currently on the hiring list to start a job that I desperately needs. I am very grateful and appreciative to USA CARES INC for all the assistance provided. I would always remember this and would one day myself donate some money to the fund to help veteran families desperately in need.

Things had been really tough for me and my family. I lost my job twice in one year due to my National Guard obligations, and it really made things hard on me and my wife. We found ourselves fighting more and more because of finances and the overall stress of being out of work.After multiple tours in Iraq, and almost 15 years in the Army I was at the end of my rope. Thats when I found USA Cares. Right away I felt better after talking to my personal worker Rosetta. She assured me that my sacrifices were acknowledged, and that they were going to help me. Within a short time I had the support I needed to keep things going at home, which gave me the ability to focus on finding a job. Not only did I find a job, but I found a better one than the two I was laid off from put together ! It means alot to me to know that there are people out there who don't know me personally, but are invested in me and my family's survival. Thank you USA Cares for giving me a new lease on life !

They say that they are here to help you, well I had someone that contacted me once, after sending back in all required documentations and a test. She said she would contact me the next day to verify how much is owed on the remainder of my bill. I have yet to hear from her. Well I guess I will just have to get up the rest of the money myself somehow. I am a vet, thanks for nothing USA Cares...

In a time where my family most needed assistance, USACares came through for us. We are so grateful for their kindness. They did an exceptional job of responding to our needs quickly and were wonderful at keeping us updated on the status of our request. What an amazing organization!

USA Cares seems to use "Responds in 24 hours" as their staple...I never heard back from them. No letter. No email, no phone call or anything. Thanks USA Cares!

I want to publicly thank USA Cares Inc for helping me and my two kids at a time we were struggling really bad. The Kroger gift cards, paying of my power bill, and paying of my rent helped me to maintain a stable home for my kids. A million thank yous are not enough, I am eternally grateful for your organization!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Being able to give out Visa/Mastercard gift cards for incidentals purchases.

My Brother-in-law returned from serving his second tour in Iraq last year and was medically discharged. In addition to losing a hand, he suffered from PTSD. We contacted several organizations but without any luck. Finally, USA Cares stepped up and provided assistance while he was in treatment for PTSD. Their Staff was very helpful, returned calls, and gave us leads on another organization that also helped us. This has been a long ordeal, but our family is getting back to normal, thanks to USA Cares. God Bless!

I want to say that I am very pleased to have recieved help from the USACares organization. It seems as though the Veteran Affairs has no respect for my service to this country. USACares helped me with getting my vehicle fixed. They have sent a credit card payment of 630.00 to Choice Transmissions to fix all four of my brakes and my hydrolics system. I had to call and call, and answer excorable questions about my health issues. I couldn't get the needed immediate assistance, having to get an estimate on what was needed to make my car safe. I had to borrow 60 dollars from a classmate to get the 630.00 allotted to me from the the organization.
I am thankful

Dennis Williams

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Sending a credit card payment to Choice Transmissions for 630.00 dollars

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help More to individuals whose claims with Compensation and Pension Disability is pending. Have Veteran send proof of claim in process
