MAKING A DIFFERENCE
BY BEING THE DIFFERENCE!
United Relief Foundation is about doing as much good as we can for as many veterans as we possibly can, which is why we welcome others to be United In Service with us.
You’re invited to Stand Tall & Together with the United Relief Foundation as we quietly go about doing the good deeds that are making a difference by being the difference in the lives of the male and female military veterans we touch.

Home Sweet Home Projects Real Estate donations continue to be processed online and Boots-on-the-Ground engagements will be limited to upcoming ADA and rehab projects.
The number of our military veterans in need, alone and feeling forgotten was already tragically substantial before COVID-19, and many more veterans are now in need of a Lifeline of Hope and Help.
Each year, over 6,000 veterans commit suicide, and 9% of the adult homeless population are veterans.
