Emergency Financial Assistance

Veterans from all around the state are experiencing homelessness, loss of jobs, food insecurity, and needing emergency financial assistance. The Foundation has an established program that supports our veterans in need during an emergency and partners with other organizations like the American Legion to help facilitate the process on a case-by-case basis.

We are committed to doing what we can to support Florida’s active duty military members, veterans, and their families, but resources are limited.

We are grateful for the Florida Legislature, private donations and grants that help to support these financial efforts that will help service members who are experiencing a hardship during this time.

If you are a donor, please find it in your heart to donate so that we can make a greater impact and support all service members who need us during this chaotic time.
