The Coalition is a national leader in providing direct financial aid to severely disabled veterans in need. We have disbursed more than $20.5 million dollars in aid and other support services through our various programs in the last 10 years and millions more since our inception in 2004. We are dedicated to serve our veterans severely wounded or disabled in the Global War on Terror. Over two-thirds of our staff are combat-wounded veterans or their spouse/caregiver.
In 2020, we gave over $527,000 in direct emergency aid. With these funds, we helped combat-wounded service members meet a wide range of urgent financial needs – particularly if they are waiting for their disability benefits to begin or have lost income because their spouse had to quit working to become their primary caregiver. Many veterans also faced crises due to the COVID-19 pandemic as they struggled to support their families in unstable times.
