Mission: Us for Warriors Foundation or "Us4Warriors" is a California Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to promote the social welfare of the troops and veterans community. “Everything we do helps veterans and their families.” That simple statement is clear, but also full of energy, excitement, hard work, determination and proven results that we apply to the fullest extent. We believe our own history of military and veteran related service and proven commitment to others every day gives those simple, eight words the most effective and resourceful meaning imaginable. Through our Us for Warriors supporting programs, helping hand deeds, inspiring events and advocacy, we believe that the key to making lives of fellow veterans better is to focus on the "whole veteran" and find ways to engage a community to fill the gaps and make a difference to enrich the lives of veterans and their families. Everything we do helps veterans and their families. The footprint we leave behind is not just imprints from strong boots, but also strong lives.

Target demographics: the troops, veterans and their families

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 2500 military, veterans and their families

Geographic areas served: San Diego, CA

Programs: Warrior Volunteer Force, Life Armor Alliance, Liberty Pass Program and others that enrich the lives and support those in need. Activities like Food4Warriors, Wheelchairs4Warriors and others provide food and basic needs assistance.

I have been observing the Us4Warrors Foundation for several years now seeing them active in the community mobilizing volunteers for events like "Stand Down" and addressing food insecurity among Military & Veteran Families. After having the opportunity of working along side the Us4Warriors Foundation one year at a back-to-school event, I was hooked! Energized and inspired by their dedicated "Warrior Volunteer Force" and the active "Board of Doers", I joined the Team! I encourage any and all, both Military/Veteran and Community Members alike to join us in service and support!

I have worked with many non-profit groups in very senior/board positions. Working with US4Warriors is one of the best use of my time and money. They serve where others don’t, they work at the grass roots level to give those who served and are still serving relief where others cannot. Their board serves work no pay and often give out of their own pockets and each one of them is a Veteran serving from Vietnam to present day. I thank God for such a great group.

I'm very pleased to see this type of service being given for our veterans. Please keep it up. If future events could take place on a Saturday or after work hours it would be more convenient for me.

It an awesome idea to get the people to register first so u have the right amount of food and not TOO much!. If they know they have a lot they give extra.
