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.

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

I received a call that totally blew me away Susan an absolute angel let me know that they would be covering both bills I was absolutely blown away.Usacares really does care .

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!!

When no one else cared USA CARES CARED for us. We were in a bind. My husband recently was discharged from his career due to this service related Disabilities. We needed help not only with financial hard ship but piece of mind . Seeing your husbands mind degrade to the point he is forced to leave his career is stressful enough not to mention the world of stress that goes along with being out of work. USA CARES responded to us quickly, they treated us with respect and dignity something that is rare in 2017. We will never forget what SUSAN at USA CARES DID for us. She not only helped us but she actually cared. THANKS USA CARES

Susan was my assigned case worker and she was AMAZING. She helped me so quickly and resolved my pending eviction as my start date for my new job was pushed back causing a serious financial hardship. I appreciate this organization so much for understanding that things can go terribly wrong for veterans in transition to civilian careers. I dont know what I wouldve done if I hadnt found this organization. Thank you guys so much!
