Service Members from all categories have received emergency assistance from the Foundation, i.e. payments to avoid eviction, foreclosure, utilities disconnection and repossession of vehicles. Throughout inception, the Foundation has assisted victims of house and apartment fires, tornadoes, floods and other natural disasters. Eligible members have received emergency travel and funeral expenses assistance. The Foundation has supported Guard members injured during deployment and training or experiencing temporary pay problems. These are examples of the multiple requests the Foundation receives each week.
As a result of contributions, both large and small, we have been able to approve more than $2.8 million in assistance to almost 3,200 applicants.

God has truly blessed me with your help. I could not go through yesterday without thinking how that phone call impacted me throughout the day. I want to thank you for all you did for me within a matter of 14 hours. It goes to show that everyone needs someone every now and again. You truly made my day yesterday and I could do nothing but praise God and ask him to use me in whatever he has in-store for to do. And, trust me… I will get his work done! Not just do it but do it to the best of my ability because God gives nothing but his best; I will stay the course. I did not think the application would work out in my favor but I had to try.

Thank you so very much for the Grant and for taking the time to help a person in a time of need. This will bring my heart some ease to know that there are good people in the world who are willing to extend a hand to others when they need help. I plan to continue with devotion to my career in the Military, to live by the Soldiers creed, and to serve my country.
I am a Georgia Army National Guard soldier that has recently received support from your organization. I don’t know how to put into words what your group has provided me. It wasn’t only a monetary value for me, it was having the peace of mind to know that if any one of my friends needed help you would be there. You have made the passing of my Father a little easier for myself and my family. We are eternally grateful for your help.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank you and the Foundation for being there for us when we really needed you. Moreover, we thank the Lord for you because you were certainly the answer to our prayers. We look forward to the day when we are in a better financial position, not just for our own benefit but so that we can be generous contributors to your organization for the benefit of other families. Thank you again.
