Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Mental Health, Military & Veterans Organizations, Substance Abuse Prevention, Veterans

Mission: The Coalition to Salute America''s Heroes, started in 2004, as a way to help the transition process for the wounded and disabled war on terror Veteran population. The organization helps to augment the support provided by the military and the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Labor.

Target demographics: veterans disabled in the war on terror

Direct beneficiaries per year: veterans from all over the United States with emergency aid

Geographic areas served: throughout the United States

Programs: The mission of the Coalition to Salute America’s Heroes is to help severely-wounded veterans and families of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom recover from their injuries and illnesses, and to inspire other organizations and the general public to participate in this effort. Through our programs of aid and assistance, the Coalition offers individual contributors, corporations and volunteers many ways to give so these veterans and their families receive what they need and deserve in return for the sacrifices they made for us. Restoring hope to a wounded hero can take a lifetime. Rebuilding his or her life takes a commitment from all of us. You can help do both by making a direct tax-deductible contribution, an in-kind donation or by volunteering your time. If we work together, we can succeed in our mission, and the men and women who were heroes on the battlefield can return home as heroes to their families and communities.

In 2005 when I was 1st injured my family and I struggled with bills and food and not knowing where we were going to stay after a honorable discharge but 0% from the Army. My wife and I continued to work various jobs to make ends meet. In 2008 we where fortunate enough to receive help from the Coalition to Salute Americas Heroes in which they payed our late payments on rent and utility bills that helped get us through the cold winters in Colorado. They also invited our family to attend a Road to Recovery conference which helped provide workshops and seminars to help get us back on track with sustainability for our future. Myself and my wife where both asked to be a part of a program within the Coalition to Salute Americas Heroes organization in the capacity of a call representative where we made thank you calls to our generous donor's that helped with our financial dilemma in 2005. If it was not for the Coalition to Salute Americas Heroes I don't know where we would be today. They have helped us sustain work and residency and we are very grateful that they continue to do this for many more veterans and their families. I also want to add how disheartening it is to see how some Veterans or spouses have tried to blemish this great organization after being helped themselves by them. I only pray that they will come to realize when they struggled this organization was there for them.

I had never asked for help before. I was way behind on a bill and playing catch up, with Christmas just around the corner I was afraid that by paying the bill I wouldn't be able to give my kids the Christmas they deserved. I sucked up my pride and asked for some help. the Coalition was able to help me and fast. I recommend them if you're in a bind and need help getting out of the rut.

This organization is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I called at least 10 organizations and not one called me back or offered to help. The Coalition called as soon as I entered my application. They assisted me with my rent because I was up for eviction. Not only did they assist with back rent but also helped with the following month so I can get back on me feet. The case manager even called my landlord and kept in touch with them the entire time so my landlord would stop the eviction and knew what was going on. This actually helped a lot because if she didn't reach out then they wouldn't have waited and I would have been out on the streets. I cannot say enough good things about this organization and the case manager that helped me. One day I will repay this organization.

I was really nervous to post anything on here because I was really embarrassed about asking for help. I’ve never asked anyone for anything before but I had no other choice. I owed a large amount on my homes mortgage. I needed help bad. The case worker stepped up and helped me right away. She also worked with other nonprofits to help with some of my other bills. My spouse just left me one day and I have been struggling. Between my ptsd and bills piling up things have gotten to be too much to handle. The case worker made it so I felt comfortable and I am no embarrassed anymore. I neede help and they provided it. I know they will always be there when I need them. Thank you salute heroes to America

I was referred to the coalition by 211. Before that I was passed around to 6 different agencies and people just kept giving me number after number to call. I was evicted and living on the street and I couldnt find anyone to help. I did not meet the criteri of the coalition but that didn't matter to them. The case manager went out of her way to make sure I found a place to live. She called everyone she could in my city until she got me into a home and food in my stomach. she didnt send me to more people and throw me aside like everyone else did. The Coalition helps no matter the issue. thank you ms hannahan

My family is in tears of happiness because we can finally breathe after this organization helped us. Our family had the electric shut off and we were sitting in a hot house. We lived this way for three weeks before I reached out for help to organizations. Colaition Salute America;s heroes is the only one that called me back and helped. They immediately called my electric company and had everything turned back on right away. If they didn’t help us then we probably would have suffered in this heat wave.

The case manager worked with me and made sure that I felt comfortable during the entire process. I have never asked for help before and was struggling because of my pride. She made me feel that it was alright to ask for help and let me know that I shouldn’t feel ashamed. She assisted right after I put the application in. She then helped me with my documents because I couldn’t find so many of them. This place goes above and beyond for their veterans. thank you all.

THE COALITION IS THE BEST! We have had such a burden lifted off of our shoulders thanks to the financial aid we were able to receive. The assistance was very quick. We were pproved for help basically the same day we applied and then we were helped quickly so we didn’t get even further behind on their bills. No other organization is as quick and helpful as this one. Thank you to their case manager, to all their employees, and all of the donors that made this possible.

I have been in need of truck repairs for a while now and I have been walking to work almost everyday. The repairs cost more than my truck is worth. I emailed a case worker that I worked with when I got emergency aid in may. She called a few places that award vehicles to Veterans and I now have a refurbished truck with no truck payment. I can get to my medical appointments and to work. I never would have known about this type of program if she didn't help me. The staff members follow through with their promises and never give up on a vet.

I can't stress enough how much of a God Send the Coalition is. With the current conditions being what they are, there are countless families being affected and struggling right now. As we began to lose ground with our bills and financial situation, it seemed like a no-win situation, and we were just going to have to ask for help or be desperate. Thankfully I read about the Coalition to Salute American Heroes and discovered that they could review our situation and possibly help. I inquired about assistance, submitted all of the requested information they needed and was squared away in less than 72 hours! I don't honestly how we would have maneuvered through this rough patch although we would have found a way, the Coalition helped us when our backs were against the wall. I approached the Coalition initially with hesitation because I am skeptical of some places offering to help us as veterans, but in reality they are just preying on us. Not this organization though. Agin, we can't thank them enough.

We are in tears over how amazing the coalition to salute has been to our family. They went above and beyond to make sure that our utilites stayed on, they helped with a discount at the electric co, and they helped us feed our children and put diapers on our baby. We had nowhere else to turn and they made sure that we got the help. They are also helping me look for a job because I was laid off from covid. I feel like I can turn to them for anything because they actually care. The employees there are the best.

When I contacted the Coalition about assistance and turned in my docs I realized that my dd214 did not have the right medals on it. The case manager helped me file for a new dd214 with the right medals on it. I never knew how to do it before. After she helped with that they assisted with my high electric bill so me and my family wouldnt be sitting in the dark anymore. They are amazing.

I was helped by the Coalition a while back and was put into their veteran program. I needed help again so i was put in touch with a case manager corrdinator. She made sure to find me the help I needed. She helped me with connecting me to a job fair and I will be attending that next week. I will keep everyone in the loop on if I find a job but I am just happy to have a source to go to. She also helped with getting food on the table for my family of 6 on top of helping put us in touch with someone to assist with the electric and water bills. I thought I was going to have a breakdown before I was helped. Thank you so so much! My family will repay you all one day for your kindness.

I cannot believe how fast they were with helping me. I was scared that my family was going to suffer and they helped. They called the electric co and got us a discount too.

They helped me find resources and again kept checking on me. They did not leave me hanging when I needed help. They have a lot of programs to and make sure they follow up on everything.

Our electricity was completely shut off. We live in Arizona and it was so hot in our house. We called at least 20 organizations that said they could not help. When we finally reach out to the Coalition they listened to us, made us feel like we actually mattered, and assisted us the same day we applied. We filled out an application and within two hours we were in the process of getting our electric turned back on. We could not believe it. They were kind, helpful, and they cared when no one else did. Whitney was our case manager and she is also helping us find resources in our town for other needs that we have. They don't just assist and then say bye. They actually keep checking on you and working with you. Thank you Coalition.

The Coalition was a life saver. I lost my job due to the pandemic and was going to be homeless with my wife and three kids. We had nowhere else to turn to. The Coalition helped with our rent to keep us from being evicted and helped with diapers and formula for my youngest daughter. After they assisted us with aid the case manager continued to reach out to us to make sure we were doing ok and then she helped locate jobs in my area so I could get back on my feet. I now have a job interview next week. When I say they saved my life I truly mean it. I was suffering before they helped my family.

I am writing this review with a grateful heart. During a very difficult time for a lot of people and me, I was able to find a wonderful organization like " Salute Americas' Heroes". There are hundreds of companies looking to take advantage of people looking for help but this is not the case with this organization. It was a blessing to find. The process was harmless and quick. Once my case manager (Whitney), who by the way was amazing, was able to verify my service to our wonderful home (USA), the payment was sent out. I thank you for your help. It's very heart warming to know that people are still willing to help military veterans. Thank you.

I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You helped my family in this trying time. Our truck was in repo status and was trying to figure out what bills not to pay. This organization paid our truck payment as well as late fees. That allowed us to catch up. Here it is months later and we have even able to maintain ourselves because of their generosity. Sometimes all people need is a little help and that is the difference between homelessness and security. I have a 3 children an infant and I was I tears trying to figure out how to best take care of them. This was truly a blessing I can my thank them enough. I aim to one day be a donor. I attached a photo of my son and I. Feel free to use it to show the donors what they are helping to ensure. He is happy because he is loved and he is loved bc the help that was given provided peace of mind for me. Thank you again. Jose Zayas. US Army War Vet

This year, my husband's service-related injuries worsened significantly. As we were navigating his health care and realizing that he would no longer be able to work, we started applying for VA and disability benefits. These already time-consuming processes have been complicated by the pandemic as well. Stuck in the middle, we started having difficulty paying our bills. The Coalition helped us by covering our rent last month. It was a HUGE weight off of our shoulders and allowed us to work on my husband's health with a little less stress last month. The staff was kind, explained what they needed to verify our situation, and worked quickly to provide assistance. We are very thankful for their help!

They are always up to the task to support veterans and caregivers. They generously provide funds during the holidays so families can have an excellent meal without worry. They provide care packages. But above all that, they give you resources and do their absolute best to answer questions relating to the veteran and caregiver life.
