While veterans are faced with a unique set of challenges upon returning to civilian life, a wide variety of veterans charities aim to address some or all of these issues.
The American Red Cross works to connect veterans and their families with both local and national resources. We help to identify the needs of veterans and their families and then determine the best programs to meet those needs – connecting them to critical community services, such as food, housing, mental health care and rehabilitation, and other resources that meet the unique needs of American veterans.
The American Red Cross also helps veterans work through the process of obtaining veterans’ benefits – from preparing applications through to appealing decisions if necessary. Additionally, members of the American Red Cross volunteer in VA and military hospitals across the U.S. and throughout the world.
