USA Cares exists to help bear the burdens of service by providing post-9/11 military families with financial and advocacy support in their time of need. Assistance is provided to all branches of service, all components, all ranks while protecting the privacy and dignity of those military families and veterans who request our help. Since 2003, USA Cares has responded to over 33,000 requests for assistance with more than $8,400,000 in direct support grants.
USA Cares is a Kentucky based 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization founded in 2003 and registered with the IRS.
USA Cares is Different because:
Grants not Loans: USA Cares provides grants to solve problems not loans to prolong them.
Screening of Applicants: USA Cares carefully screens each applicant. Our staff works directly with service providers (utility, mortgage company, etc.) to confirm the need.
Leveraging Other Assistance: USA Cares mobilizes other organizations to join in providing assistance thus maximizing the impact of every donation.
Low Overhead/High Efficiency: Typically more than 80% of all contributions received from donations and grants go to support service members and their families.
