Salute, Inc.

Project Title
Emergency Financial Assistance
Palatine, IL

Salute, Inc. passionately pursues meeting the financial, physical and emotional needs of military service members, veterans and their families. Military members served are currently experiencing the effects of the economic challenges our country is facing along with reentry to civilian life, unemployment in many instances caused by PTSD, physical injuries, and emotional issues, all due to their military service. As well, many experience delayed benefits from the enormous VA backlog. Financial assistance includes delinquent rent, tax bills, food counseling, medical bills, phone and utility, car payment, out-patient transportation, insurance, etc. All payments are made to vendors (not directly to veterans) and cases managed by experienced volunteer counselors.
