I have nothing but amazing things to say about how On Behalf has helped me and my family with their monetary grant. My wife and I are blessed with these gorgeous identical twins, and my wife seeing the fiscal struggle it has been putting me in every month went looking for someone that could help. She quickly found this wonderful and honest organization and began working with the kind their staff. All without my knowledge, until one morning recently I saw an email with a monetary grant. No matter what the amount, every cent counts when I spend $300 on formula alone for two hungry 4 1/2 month old rug rats. This money allievated the stress for 2 months so that I may save in the interim and feel as if I am not drowning again.Thank you for the life preserver!!! God bless and I can not thank you enough for the help you have given my family.

We can't thank OnBehalf enough! These wonderful folks helped us when our unexpectedly high utility bill completely overwhelmed our monthly budget. You helped us take care of something that would have set us back for months.

My family and I lost a great deal in the historic flooding of Baton Rouge , Louisiana. As a veteran of three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, I contacted on behalf.org for help with disaster assistance. On behalf contacted me and walked through the process to get assistance. Everything worked out and assistance was given. To me on behalf is a great organization for veterans and their families. Thank you guys for everything you do.

This organization was unlike any other I’ve experienced. As a combat veteran I have a hard time asking for help, but onbehalf made it feel like a hand up rather than a handout. The Director, Jennifer was there to personally look at my issues and treated me like family. She even said she would help me with more resources. This place is the real deal and I will never forget what they did for me. Thank you onbehalf

I'm an OIF Veteran who gladly served for over 8 years with a medical discharge from BAMC. OnBehalf is a very special to us Veterans.

They are very prompt and willing to answer the call to serve and help those who served. I will never forget them. I asked other organizations for assistance last, OnBehalf was the only ones who actually assisted me.

Thank you very much.

These wonder people, especially Jennifer, helped me SO much. I'm a 100% disabled Veteran and my vehicle was about to be repossessed. They helped me financially and now I'm current on all of my bills; for the first time in over a year. I couldn't be more grateful. Thank you all for your speediness and courteousness. It's so appreciated!!!

OnBehalf is one of the few organizations that actually helps and look out for Veterans when they are in need.

other organizations have a lot of red tapes, to weed out most (if not all) Veterans. OhBehalf doesn't do that.

thank you so much.

I was honestly at the end of my rope, I got out of the military, had a terrible divorce, couldn't hold a job down, and honestly was looking down the barrel of the gun, OnBehalf got me in contact with the VA to help my suicidal depression stemming from when I was injured in Afghanistan, they even helped me so I would have a place to live so I wouldn't be homeless, this is an amazing foundation doing amazing work for veterans.

My family and I got behind on Utilities because of the slowness of the VA processing my claim. OnBehalf stepped up and quickly paid our whole electric bill before it was shut off. Thank You to OnBehalf for helping us in our time of need.

This organization headed by Mr Gifford is incredible and professional in every sense. I have reached out TWICE to them and TWICE I have been fortunate to receive assistance that provided my family and I the help we needed, when we needed it . Organizations like Onbehalf.org are truly one of a kind and a true testament to the efforts and help they offer. this organization helped me to finish the police academy by providing the assistance they did. As anew Iraq vet and police officer I am ana always will be eternally grateful to them and Mr. Gifford.

I left my job for medical reasons to receive treatment for ptsd and tbi which led to severe financial difficulties. OnBehalf's organization responded promptly to my request and in no time I was given a grant which helped me tremendously.
