Care Comfort Compassion

In the Service of Veterans who are At-risk or Homeless, Homebound and Hospitalized

Why We Are Needed

Veteran women are more than three times as likely as non-veteran women to live in poverty and experience homelessness.

11% of the Adult Homeless Population in the United States are Veterans, and Tens of Thousands are Homebound and Hospitalized.

Many service members leaving the military and relocating to Chicagoland are not prepared for the transition, and as a result, struggle during the transition processes.

How We Are Being The Difference

United Relief Foundation’s Care Comfort Compassion efforts can literally make a Life-Saving difference, as an Honorably Discharged Army Veteran who was living in a van with his wife and their two children has attested too after the Foundation helped provide safe housing, food and medicine as well as employment prospects for him and his wife, and the gas money to get to appointments, interviews, and their new jobs.

United Relief Founfation Care Comfort Compassion

Special attention to the needs of homeless, homebound and hospitalized Veterans undoubtedly improves their state of mind, body, and spirit increasing their ability to be more involved in the wellbeing of other Veterans as well as being positive contributors to their communities and society.

The homeless are defined by U.S. federal legislation as people who “lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence.” 

Today is a good day to do a good deed that will help our Veterans in need know they have not been forgotten and their service has not been forsaken.
