Suicide Prevention & Awareness

#Be There.

United Relief Foundation Doing a Good

This month - and every month - take a moment to show a Veteran you care.

The Department of Veterans Affairs #BeThere campaign is to remind people that you do not have to be a mental health professional to save a life.

The VA states, “We want to let people know that things they do every day, like calling an old friend or checking in with a neighbor, are strong preventive factors for suicide because they help people feel less alone. That’s what this campaign is about – encouraging people to be there for each other.”

MAKING A DIFFERENCE BY BEING THE DIFFERENCE!

Our 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 have 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.

COVID-19 - Keeping our volunteers and the veterans we serve safe has always been our priority, and we have adjusted activities accordingly.
