As a Soldier, particularly in a combat environment, you see, speak, feel & experience things in a different way. You interact with others in your same situation in a manner consistent with the job at hand and the way y'all were trained to do it. There is a sense of duty, camaraderie and even language, that facilitates a team approach to getting a job done, whatever that job may be. Away from the military environment the Soldier may feel a bit out of place, different and even, alone. Those who haven't served many times cannot understand, much less appreciate, what the Soldier has been through, how they think, and why. Veteran organizations, such as United Military Care, not only provide needed supplies & support to Veterans in need, but the opportunity to communicate with other Veterans, in a familiar, comfortable way. Interaction & communication with other "Battle Buddies" helps remove the feeling of loneliness, and encourages "community" for ALL involved. As volunteers with United Military Care we know our efforts are needed, helpful and greatly appreciated. UNITED we stand with our MILITARY for mutual CARE and support.

I work with 2 of the Directors and they are VERY knowledgeable and professional. The UMC helps Veterans in so many ways, including distribution of needed items, finding shelter for the homeless, and working with veterans to help obtain benefits and services. They even help me understand how to coordinate programs and events with other Veteran organizations. Their office is a haven for many of the veterans needing guidance. I hear about how volunteers and funding is generously shared with those in need. I am very impressed with their nonprofit organization and how proficient and dedicated the staff members truly are.

Marine Corps League Detachment 647 is proud to provide financial support United Military Care though their holiday food drive. We participate in a number of their events. We also refer military and veterans seeking assistance to UMC when the assistance request exceeds or is outside our detachment's capability We know from experience that UMC will respond quickly and effectively to render assistance. The UMC team works hard to meet the needs of those needing assistance.

United Military Care responds to a request for help immediately. Linda, a Vietnam Era Veteran, has Parkinson's Disease , is in a wheel chair, has no car, very little income and needs transportation to Dr. appointment. After asking several people & organizations for a ride, with no results, she had to cancel her appointment. I contacted United Military Care with Linda's information and within 4 hours, United Military Care called to help Linda. This is only one of many incidences where they immediately start working to help a Veteran. They are the only one in Marietta that responds so quickly and works so hard to help Veterans. They help the first time and continue to be engaged with the Veteran with a plan for their future. Kim Scofi & Peggy Beascoechea are the most dedicated and work so diligently in their work with Veterans.

A few years ago I was looking for an organization that helps veterans and I came across this wonderful group that was close by. They offer so many great services to all kinds of veterans.

Our chapter, Kennesaw Mountain, NSDAR, has volunteered with United Military Care. When we have talked just a little with Kimberly and Peggy, we have become overwhelmed by the scope and efficiency of this organization. There is no limit to what they will try to do to help veterans. They have built a network of cooperative resources. They have employed creative approaches to gender a sense of inclusion. They are able to attract dedicated volunteers because their program is phenomenal and really gets the help to those that need it. I cannot think of a more worthy organization!

United Military Care is all about our veterans. They are extremely resourceful and maintain a database of community resources to refer veterans to for any issue. One of ours got a good recommendation of how to save a lot of money getting an oil change in her car. She was very grateful for the help. They run community wide drives for essential items and plan engaging events to uplift the spirit. Kimberly and Peggy are on a mission to let our veterans know how much we appreciate their service and to help them in their day to day needs.

Five out of five stars are given to United Military Care. Every client is given personal attention by a very knowledgable staff, regardless of the need of the veteran. The Battle Buddy program ensures that veterans in need (food insecurity, need transportion to the doctor or need information about the Veteran's Administration, need a little TLC and hundreds of other needs). Volunteers become a part of the family providing services to veterans. Every effort is given to take care of veterans.

UMC is an amazing Veteran support organization. They focus on Vets in the state of Georgia and provide food and clothing especially for the homeless Vets. Unlike some Veteran support organizations where less than 5% of donations go to the Vets, UMC applies almost everything they take in to them. They are an exceptional organization run by outstanding patriotic women!

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.

United Military Care has the biggest heart and passion for Veterans. They feed the hungry, provide socks, hygiene kits and food bags to needy Veterans. But most of all they make sure Veterans are not forgotten. Volunteers are calling to check on Veterans during the pandemic. Veterans call in as strangers and finish the call with a new friend.

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.

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 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.

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.
