Who We Are

A Lifeline of Hope and Help

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 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.

However, as we united humanitarian relief with lifelines of hope and help for the victims of Hurricane Katrine we continue to have profoundly postive impact with our service to the men and women who served our Country.

We Are Doing Good Driven

Profoundly Positive Differences

All good deeds are equal, as are the rewards of doing good. Being volunteer driven, with virtually no overhead and self-supporting Lifeline Initiatives, the United Relief Foundation can focus on doing good deeds that make profoundly positive differences for those in need.

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 to the men and women who served our Country by  Standing Tall for Veterans in need.

Our Benchmarks

 For the most part, United Relief Foundation has quietly gone about doing the good deeds that make profoundly positive differences. However, we felt our history’s benchmarks would be of interest.


Founding president Frank Salato (president of the Webheads inc solutions) leads Hurricane Katrina disaster relief efforts to collect and deliver relief supplies, by private aircraft to Slidell Airport Louisiana under military control, and logistics of 2nd supply trip and returning to Illinois with two victims of Katrina, and reunited them with their respective families.  Additional humanitarian relief efforts and aid followed.


United Relief Foundation, Inc. is officially formed as a non-profit 501 (c)(3) humanitarian aid organization and Hurricane Katrina relief efforts continue. United Relief Foundation’s connection and compounding the good approach receives accolades, notably an appearance on Good Morning America and recognition by Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour.


 United Relief Foundation continues disaster relief and engages humanitarian relief skill-sets and resources in establishing localized Lifeline initiatives.


The shortcomings in caring for United States Military Veterans are brought to United Relief Foundation’s attention and humanitarian relief focus begins shifting to solely serving those who served in the United States Armed Forces.


United Relief Foundation continues serving Veterans in need residing in Illinois and Wisconsin, and begins organizing a Standing Tall for Veterans in needs Affordable ADA Home Build project and Soil Seed Spirit Service program models to serve Veterans nationwide.
