Who We Are

A Lifeline of Hope and Help

Providing humanitarian relief in the form of hope and help.

Our Core Belief

No good deed is too small or insignificant

All long as there are Veterans in need, there can never be enough good deeds done. So, if not with the United Relief Foundation, please search out a Veteran in need and do a single good deed yourself or with another Veteran support organization.

Our Core Principles

Connecting and Compounding the Good

United Relief Foundation’s two core principles are making a “connection” between those wanting to help and those in need, and engaging others in a manner that would provide balanced benefits to all involved to “compound” the good done.

Understandably, with so many Americans in need it can be difficult for you to choose who to help and not unless your life has been touched in some way making a connection to a cause can be challenging.

A united humanitarian relief with lifelines of hope and help is how we can be of service to the men and women who served our Country.

Standing Tall for Veterans in need

Serving those who have served

With less than 0.6% of the United States population¹ having served in the United States Armed Forces most Americans do not have a family member who had served or is serving in the military.

However, whether it be patriotism, gratitude, paying forward or any other reason we hope you will join in our service, or the service of other organizations, to the men and women who served our Country by  Standing Tall for Veterans in need.

Our Benchmarks

 For the most part the United Relief Foundation has quietly gone about doing good deeds, however, our history’s benchmarks might be of interest.


Founding president Frank Salato (president of the Webheads inc) leads Hurricane Katrina disaster relief efforts to collect and deliver relief supplies. The first effort: relief flown by private aircraft to Slidell Airport Louisiana under military control, 2nd supply air-transport and returning to Illinois with two victims of Katrina, and reunited them with their respective families.


United Relief Foundation, Inc. is officially formed as a 501 (c)(3) humanitarian aid organization and chartered by the State of Illinois as an not-for-profit organization on February 2, 2006.


United Relief Foundation’s founding president, Frank Salato, deceased Father and Uncle served in the United States Navy and his Niece’s enlistment in the United States Army were factors in United Relief Foundation’s attention and humanitarian relief focus shift to serving those men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces.


United Relief Foundation explores the possibilities of expanding beyond its current Illinois and Wisconsin service area with a holistic-horticultural healing/disability-adaptive raised garden bed program model that can be replicated nationwide.
