When you’re a wounded veteran either facing eviction tomorrow or your family is sleeping in a car, you don’t have time to navigate the resources of the DoD or other organizations, if they even exist, for such needs. You need help now.
That’s where HOW steps in. Our team will assess the needs, vet the soldier’s credentials and provide mini-grants to help stabilize crisis situations. The ways in which we’ve helped, often within just hours, are numerous and include:
- Mortgage and rent payments
- Utility bill payments
- Transportation and lodging expenses to obtain treatment
- Hotel accommodations for homeless vets and their families
- Participation in adaptive sporting events
There is no “typical” story of helping veterans in our files – the soldiers we help made sacrifices on the battlefield and, in almost every case, they continue to make sacrifices today as they struggle with the financial, physical and emotional fallout from their service. We’re proud to help.
