There are many stories to tell but this is one I have selected. A 92-year-old veteran living by himself was reported as not having proper medical care due to his lack of knowledge of VA services and means of transportation. When United Military Care was notified they immediately notified me, a retired U.S. Army Officer, and I took action asap. Although the veteran passed, it was the actions of United Military Care that provided this veteran the satisfaction that he was a hero to all of us.

As a Vietnam veteran myself, I have great empathy for those currently serving this great country of ours, and those who served in wars past. United Military Care understands the Veteran community and great needs within - from housing & medical needs, to human & personal social services. UMC is continually looking for ways to help Veterans, of all ages, in all stages of life. No one should be alone, and as a "Battle Buddy", we have each other.

I'm an older, single Vet (late 70s) living alone and my 'horizons' are not what they used to be.

Frankly, I was against the wall searching for my next move when I made contact with UMC and, almost immediately, things began to change for the better. The organization comes through with whatever the Vet needs by way of shelter, food and clothing; in my case it was transportation after my last hospital discharge.

"BOFFO", in my own personal language, is the highest compliment I can pay anyone or anything. In my view, United Military Care rates a "Triple BOFFO" !!

They have my never-ending appreciation.

Peggy with United Military Care Inc. is an angel. I reached out for just a little hope & someone to listen & she was the only one answered. She listen to my story, in which my story seems unreal like all this couldn’t be going on with this one family & she listen & jumped in. She assist with getting school supplies, gift cards & treats for my 5 children but must of all she listen to me. I was able to take that load off my back, cry a little bit, & feel that I’m not alone. She gave me hope that someone cares & that’s all I really needed, that I’m not by myself & it’s going to be ok. Thank you Peggy for restoring my hope.

As a retired military officer, I have been able to help many retired military families with donations provided by United Miltary Care, Inc. I have been invited to speak at many functions in the past, the two most recent have been at Kennesaw State University, and the ALIF Institute, both pertaining to patriotic Arab-Americans who have served in the U.S. Armed Services. These activities provided the opportunity for me to meet many U.S. veterans and their families in which I was able to help with support from United Military Care. This organization has been there when our veterans needed them and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

Giving of your time to help those who served our country is about the most rewarding thing a person can do. I go home grateful every time I interact with a veteran. United Military Care provides all the fixings for Thanksgiving meals, toys for military kids at Christmas and food/clothing for homeless veterans through outreach at Ft Mac. Those are just the big things! Then there are those phone conversations with veterans that need to hear a friendly voice on a bad day - we reach them through our Battle Buddy Program. Home visits are made to our veterans who are home alone or in Assisted Living/Nursing Homes. The Battle Buddy program partners veteran with a veteran for those "buddy" conversations. All visits are include a food bag to supplement what may be a once-a-day meal delivery program. United Military Care can always use more volunteers and more donations to continue the awesome work they do making lives a little easier and a lot brighter for our Veterans.

I have been involved with United Military Care since it began. Over the years I have been a business owner working with some of the largest companies and organizations in the world. I also have been associated with several non-profits, and there have been times when I did not like the way some of these non-profits were run or spent their donations.

United Military Care is an exceptionally well run organization. The mission of United Military Care is one that I fully believe is needed. Although there are many Veteran related non profits, United Military Care helps the Military families and Veterans in a special way, by providing food, clothing and help with housing and benefit related issues. They are a very deserving organization.

Being the child of a career military father, I understand first hand the needs of families who have a deployed parent. I am proud to have the opportunity to volunteer at United Military Care. Every one involved has a passion for helping veterans. Daily activities may bring a veteran who can't afford to buy shoes for his four kids. UMC provides those shoes. A female veteran may need help with food, so gift cards are given. A Veteran with a disabled child is living in a negative environment. A volunteer spends hours on the phone listening to issues and then researches how to get the family into a place of their own and help for the child. Some of my favorite memories are the smiles and sometimes tears of joy when UMC provides an opportunity to "shop" for Christmas toys to make their children feel loved when Santa comes to visit Christmas morning. United Military Care is a caring group of volunteers who make things happen for military families and veterans in need.

This organization really cares about our veterans and active duty military families. I've had the pleasure of volunteering with them and what I experienced was awesome. They took great care in talking to people on the phone and I noticed how they made sure the people they spoke with knew they cared. When in need one of the first things people look for is someone who will actually take the time to listen. United Military Care is the very best I've seen yet.

United Miltary Care and specifically Kim Scofi have been an amazing blessing to my family and many others I've known for over 6 years now.

As a Military spouse and former FRG leader, I never realized how much this group did until of course one of my families or my own family needed them. They have helped with many things such as just supporting our unit as our soliders were deployed, to helping provide food and clothing to families in need, helping sponsoring children of service members during the christmas season, helping covering bills when the paychecks just didn't stretch far enough to cover. They've even help families in need after deployment find the a counselors to help keep these families together as a strong unit. I personally still recommend this agency to many I come in contact with that have needs.

The care and concern shown by the volunteers at United Military Care is shown not only to those who visit the office for services, but expressed amongst the volunteers themselves towards each other. The organization works hard to create a familial atmosphere where anyone is welcome and thanks given for their service. The things they are able to accomplish and events they organize for veterans and their families with the donations they receive are remarkable. This is a group that believes in education of services for veterans and has a knowledgeable group of volunteers to learn from. I hope to see a UMC near every military installation someday!

United Military Care is the only non-profit organization that I know of that helps all military and their families, be they active, retired, or just a veteran who served. They provide food staples and clothing and even household goods as needed. All of this is provided free of charge. They give from their hearts and ask nothing in return. They also help with writing resumes and budgeting to help with the families needs. Thank you United Military Care for all you do for everyone in the community.

I have only been volunteering with this organization for about 6 months. Since starting I have seen the great work that they do, more than 400 military families (active, retired, veteran) have been helped monthly with food, clothing, and guidance and counseling on many different aspects of the military life. The vice president of this organization shows families how to shop smartly and save money as well as giving them support, even if it is only to listen to their needs and then directing them to the right resources if we don't have them. It is the only organization that helps all military families regardless of rank or status. I appreciate everything they do. I am proud to call myself a volunteer for this organization.

Everyone at United Military Care is genuinely interested in helping their clients. The help and service they provided to the families of our military members has been unequal. That being said; they don't help individuals that can't help themselves. It is easy to spot people who are unwilling to WORK to get out of their situation.

I see what goes on day to day and the sacrifices the staff makes. I get excited to wake up every day and come to work because I know I will get to see real world miracles happen. I'm the first person you hear when you call the Atlanta office so give me a call and tell me how you will help this great charity. I'm a 30 year USAF spouse I know how hard it can be on military families and children. Please give.

It is a true pleasure to work alongside so many selfless individuals who volunteer to serve military and veteran families around Georgia. There are so many families whose lives have been turned around because of this organization. Personally I have seen families without food leave with a smile on their face because they know they will be able to feed their children, I have witnessed dreams come true when a hometown hero throws out the first pitch at a Braves ball game and received thank you letters from veterans who would have gone without heat in their home during the freezing months of winter. Kudos to United Military Care and your team!

I highly recommend United Military Care for its commitment to those who serve. There is never a dull moment at either office (Atlanta and Hinesville) as there is always something going on to help our military. Our country needs to embrace charities that do what they say and show their support through dollars and time.

I was so grateful when I found out about United Military Care. We literally had an emergency where we had no money for any food. I saw a post on facebook about them, and so I went to get some assistance. I was amazed that they were giving out free Panera Bread to military families. And I felt so welcome, like a family. I was brought into a private area where I can tell them about my needs. And they gave me food for my family. They really had a lot of recommendations for me also. I made new friends that day. And I recommend them to everyone. From diapers to pans, from food to clothes...they are so giving when you are truly in time of need. And they only run off of donations. This community is so strong, they are giving, and caring. Without them and benefactors, United Military Care would not have been able to help me that day. Thank you! I now dedicate my spare time to UMC. Because that one small deed made me want to give them everything I can!

I have worked with United Military Care for several years as a key referral for service members in need. UMC tries to help anyone in distress by doing a thoughtful intake and staffing for immediate assistance. Plus they are very active in general support by helping organize special events such as Braves Day for service members. They have 2 locations in North Metro Atlanta area and close to Ft. Stewart in the south. They also travel to the Ft Gordon and Ft Benning areas as needed. Thumbs up as a great resource.

United military care is an awesome organization that supports military families. Being a leader, it's nice to have an organization that I can recommend my soldier's to instead of constantly refereeing them to command programs which are often hard and time consuming to get immediate help in financial, food, and clothing crisis. I myself have even used their services. This type of organization is needed around every military base. They are great at supporting military families. The staff of volunteers are very friendly and knowledgeable of other programs and resources available for military families both on post and off.
