Veteran’s Assistance Program

Our Veteran’s Assistance Program was founded in the spirit of Veterans Helping Veterans. Our program provides ‘last chance’ assistance to Veterans experiencing hardship. All Veterans requesting assistance must demonstrate their need with honesty and have a sustainability plan.


***It is important you read through the guidelines by CLICKING HERE prior to filling out the application as we only provide assistance in specific areas and do not make exceptions to our guidelines.  You can apply for one area of assistance: Rent/Mortgage or Utilities or House Service Systems or Auto Repair or Dental. Amount requested may not exceed the amount owed.  Please note that applying for assistance in no way guarantees you will be awarded assistance. ***


If awarded assistance, it is in the form of a one-time grant. The primary goal is to not only prevent Veteran homelessness, but also to remove a Veteran from homelessness through assistance with rent and utility bills which allows for the use of a HUD-VASH voucher to secure or maintain residency.


Please note, you must provide all required documentation that supports your request for assistance to move forward in the application process. Additionally, you must show how you will maintain your situation after receiving assistance. One-time grants are always sent directly to the organization the Veteran is obligated to. Areas of need MUST always match the hardship and include documented proof and the request must make economic sense. For example, if you are behind on rent or mortgage, you must show you are behind (up to two months, but not more than two months). We do not grant future or advance payments.

I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude for your attention, patience and assistance in these matters. It’s not easy to reach out in a time of need, but you never made me feel any the less. I truly appreciate the efforts of the Veterans Assistance Program. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. God Bless.”

One year ago today I had moved back home to Rockford after living in Seattle for the last 12 years. I came home after work at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard had slowed greatly. I came home with the idea that I had a job waiting for me but that just did not happen. So I was forced to check in at the Rockford Rescue Mission men’s shelter . I have since received my VA Vash voucher, have my own apartment and I have a job now. The program made that possible, so now I am no longer homeless and have employment. Thank you to the Veterans Assistance Program.
