LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY – USA Cares Inc. is honored to announce it has received a grant from the Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) for $16,000, enhancing the Veteran & Military Family Support System’s 2021 relief efforts.

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, USA Cares provides American veterans and military families with financial assistance and post-service skills training to help them build a foundation for long-term stability. The funding from DVNF will directly improve the quality of life for at least 16 military families by providing them with life-changing financial assistance to secure their housing, food, utilities, and other essential bills. This granted relief will help these individuals move closer towards independence and self-sufficiency by removing financial barriers to their success. These barriers can increase their risk for homelessness and veteran suicide.

“The support we have received from DVNF over the last seven years has provided significant relief for the veterans and military families we serve,” said Trace Chesser, President/CEO of USA Cares. “DVNF’s Capacity Building grants are vital to enhancing the efforts of veteran service organizations like USA Cares, and we are grateful and honored to have been selected to receive this funding to further the impact of our mission.”

Joseph Van Fonda (USMC Sgt. Maj. Ret.), CEO of the Disabled Veterans National Foundation said, “We are proud to support USA Cares, as they continue to make a positive impact in veterans’ lives. We would like to congratulate and thank them for their commitment to assisting the men and women who served in defense of our country.”
