The number of veterans in need, alone and feeling isolated was already substantial before COVID-19, and many more veterans are now in need of a Lifeline of Hope and Help.

Care Comfort Compassion: With essential volunteers only, and taking personal (and public) safety-first precautions, the United Relief Foundation continues to be of service to Veterans in need.

United Relief Foundation’s service during this crisis is to continue on the best we can, in any way we can, to be a source of hope and help for Veterans in need, which in some cases include their children also.

United In Service with Illinois Joining Forces, our Rapid Response efforts continue making differences that go beyond a veteran’s immediate needs.
