General Information
Description of ServiceUSA Cares provides financial and advocacy assistance to post 9/11 active duty US military service personnel, veterans and their families. They assist all branches of service and all ranks and components. They do not charge fees nor accept repayment and rely on donations from private citizens, businesses and foundations for all funding.

Financial assistance is not given directly to service members or their families; instead, payments are made to mortgage lenders, utility companies, and other vendors. The objective is to reach families at the earliest stage of intervention to proactively prevent further financial distress.

Typically, USA Cares provides assistance in four major areas:
  • Emergency Assistance - pays immediate, essential bills, including food and utility bills,
  • Housing Assistance – helps to stop and prevent evictions and foreclosures,
  • Combat Injured - pays basic expenses: mortgage/rent, food and home utilities which enables combat injured to receive treatment and be assured their family is taken care of,
  • Jobs Assistance – reduce unemployment among post-9/11 Veterans through job-seeker tools, open to all veterans, limited financial assistance.
