Our organization provides emergency assistance to veterans across the country with things such as security deposits, food, education, medical bills, PTSD care, and more.
We partner with the VA to further our mission to serve those who served us, like Marilyn.
Marilyn Morales is a fighter.
She served honorably in the Navy for 4 years. But when she separated from service, she found herself in hard times.
Marilyn was diagnosed with cancer, and to make things worse, she needed to separate herself from a turbulent domestic life at home. She left home for Philadelphia with no money, no job, and no family nearby.
She had nothing but $100 and her car. Marilyn couch surfed for months, leaning on friends to pull her through the dark time.
Through her perseverance she was able to find a local organization to assist her with securing a home for herself. Marilyn was ready to work, and she even got a license for nail care. Things seemed to be looking up, but Marilyn had no tools to start her new job!
When we heard Marilyn’s story we immediately stepped in, providing her with all the tools and supplies necessary to start her own nail care business. Now Marilyn can go to work and provide for herself, and has finally found peace and stability in her life.
After selfless service to our country, Marilyn got the fresh start she deserves.
