Evidence of Program's Success

Since the organization's inception in 2003, we have seen our incoming donations and outgoing aid grow significantly each year, sometimes as much as 30 percent annually, as word of our work has spread. This statistic alone demonstrates both the need and impact of our work, even before the major military drawdown begins. However, the most relevant evaluation of our success is the direct impact we have on the lives and dignity of soldiers and their families. By helping them meet basic, essential needs like housing, utilities and other vital expenses, we help them maintain their dignity and strengthen families, which in turn helps prevent divorce, suicide, bankruptcies, and other family crises and tragedies.
