HELPING TO FILL IN THE GAPS

Lives changed for the better

Salute, Inc. Helps Veterans To:

Save their family from homelessness

SALUTE, INC. saves military families from homelessness through rent and mortgage payments that prevent eviction or foreclosure.

Get to where they are going

Veterans are assisted with car payments and repairs allowing them to get to their jobs, the VA office, PTSD therapy and drive their kids to school.

Continue their education

Laptops and tablets are purchased for veterans, enabling them to continue their education and look for employment.

Afford the essentials

SALUTE, INC. pays for grocery cards, diapers, clothing, daycare and uncovered medical bills.

Keep the lights on

Many utility bills are paid, so the lights are kept on, the water running, the trash collected and the home warm

A PERSONALIZED INVESTMENT INTO THEIR FUTURE

SALUTE works individually with each veteran applicant to assess their current situation and determine how we might offer assistance.  The most common requests are for help with housing, car, grocery and utility bills.  However, sometimes the financial assistance is more specialized, e.g.  an adaptive bike so the veteran can rehabilitate or compete, textbooks or tuition assistance to continue their education, or a laptop to facilitate  a job search.  SALUTE works one on one with every veteran applicant to meet their specific needs, tailoring our response so it will have the greatest impact on their lives.
