Why We Help

Many military service members leaving the military have a hard time transitioning into civilian life. Not only are they faced with the challenges of their visible and unseen injuries they are also overwhelmed with trying to navigate their way into the civilian workforce and can experience financial difficulties when trying to provide for themselves and their families. Wounded Veterans Relief Fund exists to provide emergency financial support to qualified disabled veterans living in Florida. Saving lives and keeping families together is our mission.
The Tamez Family

In total we were able to provide $60,151 in financial assistance to Florida’s veterans for the month of July.
