USA Cares


Combat Injured Assistance

The Combat Injured program pays the basic expenses for veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST) while they receive treatment.

Housing Assistance

The Housing Assistance program aims to prevent foreclosures and evictions for post-9/11 veterans and their families. Families seeking help are required to attend free budget counseling before any grant assistance is awarded.

Emergency Assistance

The Emergency Assistance program focuses on cases where the financial stress is related to military service. This program pays immediate, essential bills, including food and utility bills.

Career Transition

This program provides individuals with tools and resources to better prepare them for the hiring process, and refers qualified candidates to corporate organizations with open positions of employment specific to their skillsets.

Additionally, this program helps pay an individual’s essential expenses while they train for a new job, relieving any financial barrier that keeps them from getting a new job or career. 

Financial Education & Empowerment Program

As a part of the application process, USA Cares incorporated The Military Housing Financial Education & Empowerment Program to provide support to military families who are facing financial difficulty. Our hope is to arm military families with the tools they need to be prepared when the unexpected happens.
