Civilian life brings its own unique set of challenges and, most of the time, its easy to handle those challenges. It is the unforeseen stuff that can sneak up and takes a massive toll on every day life. That’s where we come in. Veterans in Crisis is a Veteran-led group that rapidly serves veterans in Northern Michigan who honorably served their country.
We provide immediate ‘hand-ups’ that are 100% confidential. These are needs that have come up and are difficult to financially absorb at the moment. A need can be anything from rent assistance, help with unexpected medical bills, vehicle repairs, or even a ride to an important appointment. It can also be something we have not listed but the primary concern is the need is real and immediate. Our volunteer vets will contact you up to two hours after submitting a form to understand the scope and urgency of your need. Then, they will get in touch with our network of service providers to arrange quick support. You served your country, now let us serve you.
