Currently, we are experiencing a large number of requests for assistance but we do not have funding at this time due to a lack of donations.
We are sorry about this situation. There are currently 5600 veterans waiting for donations to arrive.
We will have to stop accepting pre-applications until we are able to assist the veterans currently on our waiting list.
If you would like to help these veterans please make a donation on our website.
Again, we are sorry for the lack of donations to assist you.
