USA Cares was an indescribable blessing to me, the consistency, the hospitality and the urgent sense of care just all together revitalized my hope and optimism. I personally want to thank MS. D, from USA Cares, you made me feel like somebody actually gave a care when up until that point i discovered USA cares I was in a bad mental state. #AIRBORNEALLTHEWAY

UsaCares.com was so easy to work with. Darrika made the whole process so easy and was so helpful anytime we had questions. She went above and beyond what I expected. Usa Cares is the reason my husband was able to get the help that he needed! I will forever be grateful to them for the help that was offered! I will be recommending this program to my other military friends and family. We will never be able to repay what this program has given my family because it was more than just monetary help.

I recently had surgery, and was out of work for 2 months, I got behind on my rent and needed help catching up. Darrika from USA cares was willing listen to my story and help me out. Darrika was so patient and worked with me to get all the paperwork together. Darrika is the best.

We were at the end of our rope our utilities were going to be disconnected I was scared that my family was going to suffer because I could not provide for them. Than a friend told me a bout USA Cares the best day of my life. I called and was assigned a case worker Rosetta who was my guardian angel. I cannot say enough about the wonder program and Ms. Rosetta, they do exactly what they say and help veterans when no one else would. USA Cares is a God send.
Thank you USA Cares.

I'm speechless. There are literally no words to describe how absolutely amazing this organization is, but I'll try. My husband is a disabled vet (100% through the VA for PTSD/anxiety/depression), and winter is a really bad time for him every year - as in, suicidal bad. This year has been particularly messy. The VA blows him off; he can't get any help from them when he reaches out for it, but that's a whole different story. The point is, this year we've spent a whole lot more time there than usual, which means I've needed to be off work much more frequently. My job is great about it, but if I don't work - I don't get paid. Bills piled up, and we've been struggling to keep ourselves afloat. We got a disconnection notice from the electric company and spent a few weeks scouring the internet and begging friends and family for help. We do NOT like to take advantage or have to rely on others, but truthfully, we didn't have a choice. After I'd exhausted every single option possible, I found USA Cares, Inc. They responded to my questions quickly and explained the process of applying. After I applied, I heard back from them the same day! I was given contact information for a caseworker (Darrika), and I reached out to her. We spoke on the phone, she got all of our basic information, sent me an email (immediately) with what documentation they needed, along with a link to a quick, online financial planning course. I'm sure I bugged the crap out of her by checking in and looking for updates, etc. but she was always fantastic with me, never frustrated. Only 2 days after submitting the application, on the day the electric was to be disconnected (technically scheduled the day before, but luckily they didn't get to us that day), Darrika informed me that we were approved and a payment was made. I can NOT express the relief we felt! My husband is triggered by major stresses, and no electric is a pretty big one. I was so worried for his physical and emotional safety, and USA Cares, Inc. relieved that. It's amazing to me that such a wonderful organization exists and can actually help - they take care of our Veterans, and to me, that's a huge deal. To Darrika and the entire team at USA Cares Inc, we can never thank you enough for your positive, friendly, and compassionate communication and all of your help throughout the entire process - you have no idea the impact you've had on our lives; it's so far beyond appreciated! Thank you.

My husband is a disabled veteran from the US Army that was medically discharged from the service. We fell on hard times due to his inability to work for the last few months. We reached out to several charitable organizations to seek financial help and support and USA Cares came through in the most amazing way. All of the representatives were so nice and supportive. The turn around on the help they offered was quick. They were always around to answer questions and even helped us with groceries. I have 2 small kids so the help they offered was a breath of relief for us! I think no military family should wonder where their next meal will come from and USA Cares assured that we would not have to. No words can describe my gratitude! Kudos to this wonderful organization. Thank you all. Thank you Angela and Susan!

I was hesitant, initially, when I was told about USA Cares. I'm a disabled vet who had surgery on a service connected disability. Due to the surgery and recovery, I found trying to recover and work to pay my bills, a challenge. To this day, I'm still recovering. My surgery was in August. I contacted USA Cares, someone was assigned my claim and the rest is history. It did take sometime. I had to follow up a couple times. On the flip side to that. I also didn't take into consideration how many other people these wonderful people help. I am beyond grateful. Without their help, I don't know what I'd have done. Thank you SO much, USA Cares!!!

USA Cares is the most incredible veterans assistance agency I have encountered. When I needed help they were there and made the process simple and stress free. My caseworker did not judge and was very helpful with any hickups I encountered. I was not afforded the opportunity to finish a valid Medical separation and had no time to plan how to cover bills. I had 10 days to do things most have 6-12 months to do. They expediently assisted with my car and insurance payment and that allowed me to focus more on seeking employment and preparing for an appeal of what happened while I was active duty. I will surely let anyone I know who may need services and is eligible that there is an organization that keeps to its mission and comes through for this country's veterans. Thank you so much.
