Mission: USA Cares exists to help bear the burdens of service by providing post-9/11 military families with financial and advocacy support in their time of need. Assistance is provided to all branches of service, all components, all ranks while protecting the privacy and dignity of those military families and veterans who request our help.
Geographic areas served: USA Cares is a National 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Programs: We assist post-9/11 active military, veterans and their families by providing financial assistance grants and educational support for hardships caused by their military service.
This is one of if not the best non-profits in the United States; designed to assist post 9-11 veterans in need. There are guidelines set but if you fall within the guidelines the service is prompt, friendly and most caring. There is no non-profit that can assist everyone but USA Cares is very professional and caring for every client. If direct assistance is not available they will attempt to find indirect assistance. Overall USA Cares is a wonderful organization.

USA Cares is supposed to be empathetic towards military service members and stress causing situations.
USA Cares does not understand that a veteran will tough out for prolonged periods of time and stressful situation.
USA Cares criteria of time frame regarding financial assistance is not a sound guideline.
If they wish to truly take a veterans life stressors in to consideration, they need to realize that life is not shaped by a cookie cutter.
