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.

I am very thankful for USACares assistance in my time of need. They were able to help me in a really tight crunch. They were able to respond to my application within 12 hours and financially assist me in the last 2 hours of that 12 hour window. I really needed assistance with Utilities. I also received Cards to purchase food with. Thanks so much for helping me and my family get back on our feet. Peace, Love and Healing

Thank you so much for the help. USA cares is the only organization who has helped in me in my extreme finically hardship. The VA stopped my disability compensation and I was in a panic. USA cares helped me out with some of my financial burden mainly my rent. I can't express my gratitude enough for such a generous offer. God bless this organization and may it prosper so that veterans like me may get help when they need. P.S. I definitely want to do something good for this organization. I hope to bless them when I'm back on track. Thanks again.

My husband is a disabled veteran. Since he left the Marine Corps his disability has gotten progressively worse. He finally got to the point where he could no longer work in March of this year. I have tried to keep us afloat the best I could despite the sudden hit in income. We have four small children and by July we were drowning. Our car was about to be repoed, our phones were up for disconnection and we had no electricity. (We live in Arizona and electricity is a huge expense) All this financial stress was wearing my husband down to the point he was talking terrible things about not wanting to be on Earth anymore. I was crumbling.
Somehow I stumbled upon USA cares. I put in an application on Friday the 21st of July and to my surprise someone called me back within a few hours and said she was assigning our application a case worker. Jerry Newman called me bright and early Monday morning (July 24) and went over what he needed and whatnot. His actually communicated with me the whole process. By Wednesday (July 26th) my application was approved and my bills were paid. He actually apologized for it taking so long. Here he is apologizing and I can't even fathom the fact that this is happening. He not only did what he said he was going to do with no speed bumps but he did it so quickly I almost got whiplash. Are you kidding me?! Is this organization for real? This shows the quality of service they provide. To me the help came in record time, and he was still apologizing for a delay and thanking my husband for his service. I cried when he let me know our application was approved and I cried today writing this. This company is fantastic and Jerry Newman is awesome. Thank you for helping our family when we thought we were going to drown! This company literally changes lives. I can't believe the change in my husbands demeanor already. The air and energy in our house is much lighter and our smiles are real. THANK YOU!!
