Holiday Blessing 2019

This holiday season we are extending our annual Holiday Blessing to the children of families currently enrolled in our Wounded Veteran Family Care Program. Our goal is to relieve a bit of the stress that can come during the holiday season. Thanks to our generous donors, TD Foundation and Azalea Charities, we will send our caregiver families gift cards for each minor child in their household. This Holiday Blessing goes out to caregivers who have sacrificed much, including their income and time, to care for their veterans who have protected our freedom. We welcome the opportunity to show them our gratitude and give them

Collaboration for Caregiving Families

We recently had the privilege of assisting a mother of two young children, and wife providing care for her Army veteran. While in Iraq, he was wounded in combat by a bomb blast resulting in a number of visible and invisible wounds. This caregiver came to us for assistance for her husband’s health needs. While we are not able to purchase medications and health supplements directly, we assisted with the family’s car payment in order to free up their budget to purchase the vitamins he needed out of pocket. After she and her QoLF FSC further discussed her unmet needs,
