The Life Needs Program provides emergency financial assistance to military families based on needs that arise from financial hardships faced when a service member is wounded, facing multiple deployments, killed in action or suffering from injuries received in the line of duty. We also assist Gold Star families who have lost a loved one to the war or post war suicide resulting from complications from PTSD and/or other injuries. Our charter requires there is at least one child 18 or under currently in the home to be eligible for assistance.
All documents required must be submitted within 2 weeks of the original request. Your application will not be considered or sent to the committee until all documents have been received in readable condition. The application is then sent to our committee and their decision is final.
These payments can include lease, mortgage, insurance, car payments, utility bills, and some travel expenses.
These payments do not include money for groceries, gas or direct cash paid to the service member or family.
You will need to fill out the application clearly and submit a copy of your DD214 to begin the process.
You must also include a current photo ID, verification of address, a copy of your most recent federal tax return, bank statement and copies of debts you want considered for payment. If you are disabled we need a copy of your disability compensation letter from the Veterans Administration.
To begin you must download the application to your computer and send it to us as an attachment with a copy of your DD214 and copies of debts to firstname.lastname@example.org
Or you may print out the application, provide a copy of your DD214 and copies of debts and fax to our office at 800-690-1759.
All applications go through an approval process that may take up to two weeks.
No application will be reviewed without a DD214 and all appropriate documentation.
