Give A Hand Up
What happens when a veteran comes home from a tour and is without a job, without a place to live and has bills to pay? What happens when a family struggles financially when a loved one is serving overseas?
Military service often presents hardships to individuals and families. You can help by joining Veterans Count, a program of Easterseals RI.
Veterans Count was created to ensure our veterans and their families do not have to endure personal struggles after sacrificing so much for our country. Veterans Count provides financial assistance to veterans and their families in need of emergency services.
This financial support includes housing, rent, transportation, fuel assistance, utilities, food, vehicle repair, gasoline, childcare, tuition and medical bills. We provide emergency funding before, during and after deployment. A care plan is developed for each client to ensure veterans, service members and their families receive the help they need to become self-sufficient.
We need your help! Veterans Count is a prestigious and truly effective means to make a profound and immediate impact in the lives of our military families.
This is a wonderful way to show your gratitude. We hope you will join us in giving a hand up, not a hand out, to our deserving service members today.
Here are just a few ways you can get involved with Veterans Count:
- Make an individual or corporate donation.
- Sponsor a Veterans Count fundraising event.
- Volunteer as a board member, at an event, or help us raise awareness.
