Veterans' Resources: General Assistance Resources

Sources of support for veterans and their families

General Information

The American Red Cross has a long history of providing service to members of America's military and their families during conflicts, peacekeeping and humanitarian operations. Today, the Red Cross is proud to maintain its commitment to the sick and disabled men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Deployment Health Clinical Center was designed to assist clinicians in the delivery of post-deployment healthcare by fostering a trusting partnership between military men and women, veterans, their families, and their healthcare providers to ensure the highest quality care for those who make sacrifices in the world's most hazardous workplace.

The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

Through Rebuild Hope donors help the families of current era veterans who are

  • dealing with serious service-connected injuries or illnesses,
  • experiencing short term unexpected financial problems for reasons other than unemployment,
  • committed to achieving financial self-sufficiency,
  • and would significantly benefit from our financial assistance.

Founded by Barry Zito in April 2005, the Strikeouts For Troops roster is home to some of the biggest names in baseball - the names that adorn the sports pages of the cities they represent on a daily basis. These players have pledged money to Strikeouts For Troops to help our injured American Soldier and their family.

 

OUR MISSION:To foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts. To serve our veterans, the military, and our communities. To advocate on behalf of all veterans. 

Vets4Vets is a non-partisan organization dedicated to helping Iraq and Afghanistan-era veterans to
heal from the psychological injuries of war through the use of peer support. Our primary goal is to help Iraq and Afghanistan-era veterans understand the value of peer support and to regularly use peer support to express their emotions, manage their challenges and ease their reintegration into society. Our vision is that anytime a veteran needs to talk with someone who really understands, a local Vets4Vets peer support group is available at no cost. We envision Vets4Vets being a common name in the minds of all veterans as a place where they, and their comrades, can go to heal.

 

Veterans Outreach Center proactively seeks out veterans in need who continue to suffer in silence-battling personal wars that can be won, with our help. VOC's collaborative approach to treatment cares for the whole person. Veterans receive the breadth of services needed to regain their mental, physical and economic health; reconnect with themselves and society; and resume productive lives.

 

The vision of the Bob Woodruff Foundation is to provide resources and support to injured service members, veterans and their families -- building a movement to empower communities nationwide to take action to successfully reintegrate our nation’s injured heroes—especially those who have sustained the Hidden Injuries of War—back into their communities so they may thrive physically, psychologically, socially and economically.

Mission Connect is focused on the discovery of preventions, treatments and cures for central nervous system damage caused by brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and neurodegenerative diseases.

 

We will develop and promote employer support for Guard and Reserve service by advocating relevant initiatives, recognizing outstanding support, increasing awareness of applicable laws, and resolving conflict between employers and service members.
