Vets in Crisis started when its Veteran founders noticed that local Veterans are still grappling with the burdens of serving our country even after they have returned home. Veterans who have re-established themselves back into civilian life must navigate surprise medical expenses, loss of benefits, unexpected home repairs, hourly cutbacks, and more. Since 2016 we have helped rapidly eliminate the financial stress caused by those surprises by providing ‘hand-ups’ to Veterans in 21 counties throughout Northeastern Michigan and the U.P. This way Veterans and their families can continue to move forward.
We are currently 98% volunteer as well as a 501(c)3 non-profit and we rely heavily on donations from members of the community, business sponsorships and partnerships with local providers for ‘In-Kind’ services. Donations help us fund crisis situations that can be anything from gas cards, dental work, transportation to appointments, paying over-due utility bills & rent and much more. Our generous network of ‘In-Kind’ service providers help by providing much needed work at a discounted rate.
