Veterans helping veterans in removing short term barriers to long term success
These items are low dollar (under $1500) and are provided using funds from our general fund account. These services are on a available funds basis.
Basic Home Repairs
Minor Home failures can have a drastic impact on struggling Veterans. When a furnace stops, plumbing needs attention or simply needs work done that VA won’t cover. We do what we can to help fill the gap.
While a Veteran is waiting for a determination from the VA, the Veteran still has to face life. What does the Veteran do if they have a major appliance fail. They call us. We help replace the appliance so the Veteran doesn’t end up in a hole they can’t get out of.
Minor Transportation Issues
Disabled Veterans have certain issues when it come to transportation. We can help get transportation for the Veteran whether that means fixing a car, getting a bus pass, arranging a ride or any number of issues that arise from transportation issues.
The GI-Bill will pay for most of the school expenses. But it won’t help pay for bills while the Veteran is in school. We do. We help pay some bills so the Veteran can concentrate on school.
Short Term Child Care
The GI-Bill does not pay for child care while the Veteran works through treatment. If the Veterans spouse needs to work, what do they do with the children? They look to us for help. We can help setup or pay for child care to relieve some of the stress to the Veteran.
