Heroes Helping Heroes

Thank you for being a hero by helping our military heroes who are struggling after return home from their service.  You, our Donor Heroes, have helped give out nearly $40,000 to deserving military heroes in crisis.  Without your support these military heroes and their families would continue to suffer.

Through your generous support you have helped veterans like Efrain in Indiana who is disable and served in Iraqi.  Efrain and his son were going to be evicted but we worked with his landlord and saved their home.  Efrain writes, "I am happy to inform you that the check was delivered today. I gave Linda (landlord) a hug for being so patient with me while going through our hardship. May I also extend hugs to you and all who made it possible to help veterans like myself. It makes me proud to have served our country."

Many of our military heroes struggle with injuries and waiting for government services which are slow to come. Through your donations we have been able to help out in this critical gap. Currently, we have $18,000 of unfunded applications.

Henry in Texas served in the Army in Afghanistan. He is medically disabled. Government services are slow in assisting him. He has drained his savings while he waits for VA and Social Security. He needs $2,200 to save his home.

April in Maryland served in the Army National Guard. She is a single mom with two children and unemployed. She is doing the best that she can to maintain her household while waiting for government services. She is in need of $1,060 to stop the court ordered eviction.

Kenny G. as of March 2012  was medically discharged due to combat related injuries. His utilities and mortgage are behind as he awaits government processing.  Dale C. has recently returned from Afghanistan.  He has a wife and 3 children. They are 3 months behind on their rent.  This list goes on of service men and women across the country struggle with paying the basic necessity of housing.  These veterans suffer from combat related injuries, unemployment now that they are back, and slow government processing.  At stake is the roof over their family's heads.

Your continued support will help these military heroes and the others on our waiting list.  Please give today and please forward this to your co-workers, friends, and family who have an interest in giving back to our military servicemen and women.

Thank you.
