If you are a wounded Service Member/Disabled Veteran, Family Member or Case Worker contacting OFR for assistance please click the “Request Assistance Application” button below.
Due to high volume of cases and limited funds all applications will be reviewed and determination of assistance depending on available funds at the time of the request will be made.
Please Read Carefully
Due to limited funds and a high volume of incoming applications we have implemented a new application process.
We do not want to take your personal information without feeling that we will be able to assist you in some way.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include your full name, current address and the last four of your SS# along with a short description of your emergency needs.
Please let us know if you are post-9-11 or pre-9-11. We serve all conflicts, all branches nationwide however if we are unable to serve you at the time of your request it helps us to know this information so that we can refer you to an organization that you fall within their requirements.
If we are able to assist with your needs, we will email you with a link to fill out our online application.
However, the final decision to assist your needs will not be made until the OFR Application and supporting documents have been received and verified.
Please keep in mind that many families are in need and once we send our application link out you have 7 days to complete it.
At the end of the 7-day period if we have not received a response your case will be closed and the funding we had set aside to assist you will move forward to a new family.
If your situation is out of our scope or funding is too low for us to assist you, we will give you resources to contact for possible assistance.
We are working diligently to secure funding to meet more of the incoming needs.
Please monitor your email and if you have not received a response from us please check your spam mail. We always respond.
