I honestly cannot express how wonderful this organization is. After a hospitalization for my service connected conditions, they stepped right out and helped our family immensely. Erin was amazing all the way through, from initial application to letting us know that we were not only approved, but also getting Amazon Pantry boxes. From start to finish, it was an amazing, easy process and they really care about veterans. Not just say they do or use them as a hot button word like a lot of places, they actually care. I cannot recommend them enough. Absolutely outstanding

I would like to recognize USACares for helping me and my family in our time of financial need.

I applied for USACares' new job financial assistance program. Veterans who have accepted a job offer and demonstrate financial need qualify. The approval process took longer expected due to difficulty with verifying employment through my employer.

The one issue that came up was the check that I was sent was mistakenly mailed standard mail. There was a miscommunication with whoever is responsible for mailing out payment. This was problematic because the check was for my rent and the next month was fast approaching.

My case worker was Jerry Newman. He came through and straightened everything out by cancelling the original check and mailing another check via USPS Overnight mail. Myleasing office receives the check the next day and the crisis was solved.

Thank you so much USACares for helping a veteran in need! My family and I appreciate it!

USA Cares came through and helped us when we needed it the most. After job transitions and depleting our savings, we were financially strained and needed the help to get back on top again. Its a humbling experience needing help. When we found USA Cares they were nothing but supportive, efficient, non judgemental and kind. The intake process was smooth and the turn around time on approval was quick. We are so grateful that USA Cares was there when we needed it the most.

I was referred by another Service Member who explained to me what USA Cares does, I was skeptical and wasn't sure how it worked. It took some time, but boy am I happy! Everything worked out, they went ahead and took care of some things I needed, due to my disability and and my struggle with securing employment, I was able to get emergency requests to pay bills, and I am beyond thankful! Blair was also a big help and she was patient with me as I gathered all the documents. USA Cares, is the real deal! The help they provide to Veterans is amazing! Thank you for helping me during my time of need.

I can't begin to express how much USA Cares help me and my family through our crisis. It couldn't happen at a better time. After I was discharged honorably from Active Duty, I struggled to find employment. My last military pay was delayed and I had no funding for my rent. When all hope was lost, miraculously I received a phone call from USA Cares stating that they will help me with my rent. Shortly after I received the support from USA Cares, I was called in for an interview at the Sheriff Department and got the job. Without USA Care me and my family would have been evicted from our home and forced into an unknown situation. I am thankful for their help and will give back in donations so that other service men can receive their much needed support.

My family feels so blessed by USA Cares Inc. as this grant allowed us to stay in our home and pay some utilities. This act of generosity took the stress off me and helped me feel hopeful for the future. I had been ill and unable to work for a period of a few months. I had depleted funds as a single, service-disabled veteran trying to support my family, and I was desperate for any help that was available for veterans and I found USA Cares Inc. I called and was given a case manager who was so kind and supportive of me. I am very thankful as I am now fully employed and able to continue in service of others. Thank you to the donors and those involved with USA Cares Inc. who make the grants possible to veteran families. You have made a great difference in my family's life by providing the help we needed when we needed it most.

Hi! I am a OEF disabled combat veteran and single mom who was just SO BLESSED by USA Cares! I never expected to be in such a financial bind and facing eviction. In my current situation, I have no family around and my daughter and I would be homeless. The help I received through USACares and their sponsors is beyond a blessing for my little family. We are no longer facing eviction and with the walmart gift cards we will be able to have food!!!! Thank you so much for everything, from my daughter and myself. We are forever grateful and will do all we can to let everyone know how amazing this organization is!!!!

My experience with usacares has been such a blessing. Thank you for your help during my time of need. I was stressed, scared, and out of hope when i reached out to the team, and they where quite patient and understanding with me. I am not sure what i would have done without the help i received from Darrika and the staff at usacares.
I will do my best to pay it forward when i get the chance. ✌❤

Thanks to Mrs. Darrika from USA Cares, my family and I are now able to recover from such a difficult time. When my disease began to flare up, I had no idea how I was going to continue to bring an income to my household as a new disabled veteran. I reached out to several organizations that help veterans. I had no luck, until USA cares followed up with me. The process was quick, easy, and it helped my family a great deal.

Thank you for helping my family during our time of need we truly appreciate it. Hurricane Matthew really set us back on a financial level (especially with having a added vehicle payment) and we are grateful that there are organizations that help service members, veterans, and their families when times get tough. God bless USA Cares for serving those that served their country.

Darrika and the team with USA Cares really came through for me when life gave me curve ball. After spending time in a VA treatment facility for PTSD and other mental illnesses USA Cares helped with some auto payments after losing everything. Thank you so much.

Susan from USA Cares is amazing. I had to travel 1000 miles away from my home and family for some much needed medical treatment that will last approximately 10 weeks. The distance and having to live in two locations has taken a huge financial strain on us. Susan took the time to listen and send some finical aid to support my family so I could focus on my treatment knowing they are taken care of. Thank you Susan and the whole USA program...You helped me and my family so very much.... God Bless you all.
