Please read carefully in order to optimize your experience on this platform.
THIS IS A ONE TIME ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (funds are raised on a case by case bases)
IMPORTANT: Crusaders Valor for Veterans™ supplies URGENT FINANCIAL RELIEF for Veterans in DIRE NEED. We deem the receipt of a rent or mortgage emergency, electric, gas, water shut-off issues and no food as dire needs.
THIS IS URGENT CARE If you are months behind without any solution for next month (and ongoing), we may not be able to help. You have to have a long-term solution outside of V4V as we are only a one-time, and immediate option for those who have fallen into dire straights and need a “shot in the arm.”
We will help with up to two nights of emergency housing, one trip to the grocery store and a limit on how much financial aid for bills based on a case by case basis.
We do not give money directly to Veterans. If we are able to help, the money will be paid directly to the creditor. We also only help Veterans and their direct families (spouse and children)
To qualify, you must fill out the form below, include a copy of your Member 4 DD214 form, and be able to prove that you have a plan for the next month. Upon receipt of your help request, we will contact you within 12-24 hours. If we do not get a response from you within 24 hours, your case will be closed.
We appropriate each individual case through our support system, with hands-on guidance from Team Crusaders as we help guide the process along the path on through to solution.
We take every case very serious and sincerely try to help everyone, but do understand that by using this system, it is just a utility and can in no way guarantee or warrant any services or help gained through the use of this platform.
The Crusaders are backed by a competent team of experienced professionals who can and will verify all claims, stories, and all sides, as part of the process of determining proper direction for potential solutions.
DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED SECURELY
A NOTE ON “STOLEN VALOR” aka “Playing the Veteran Card” Although we have a deep appreciation for all of our Veterans, we will not tolerate those who “take advantage of the system.” Unfortunately, there are individuals who play several non-profit Veteran organizations and resources to their advantage. These individuals may have disabilities, though are not in a “dire” state (although they claim to be) as many of those who truly and urgently need relief. Unlike many non-profit Veteran groups, we are likened to a “triage team” as our organization and systems are designed to help those in “urgent need” fast. If any Veteran is found to be dishonest (lying, falsifying, etc.) these individuals will be flagged in our system. Fraud information will be shared with other veteran agencies i.e. VFW, American Legion, DAV etc.
