The Independence Fund recently launched [email protected], a virtual emergency program to directly support catastrophically disabled Veterans, caregivers and their families.
Due to the influx of important information involving COVID-19, we thought it was important to keep our Veterans, Caregivers and their families up to date on news they can use. Check here often for trusted tips, updates and resources.
We are shifting our entire program funding to [email protected], allowing us to assist with emergent costs like rent, utilities, childcare, transportation services, home WiFi services, household cleaning and upkeep, grocery and medical product delivery, and streaming services for work and learning. These urgent and unexpected needs are especially felt in the catastrophically wounded Veteran community. We know that many Veteran families live day-to-day on very thin margins. The pulling back of the support systems they’ve had in place only adds to the challenges these families conquer daily.
