Why We Are Needed
On any given night 40,000 Veterans are Homeless and 13,000 are Unsheltered, and Tens of Thousands are Homebound and Hospitalized.
Veteran women are more than three times as likely as non-veteran women to live in poverty and experience homelessness.
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.
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.
