Service Area: National
The Independence Fund (TIF) serves catastrophically wounded, ill, and injured (WII) veterans, their caregivers and families. TIF’s programming builds social connections for veterans, caregivers and their families to maintain the sense of community, prevent loneliness and isolation, and combat challenges our WII veterans face on a daily basis. The financial assistance provided through Independence@Home will support mortgage/rent, utilities, childcare, transportation services, home WIFI services, household cleaning and upkeep, grocery and medical product delivery, and streaming services for work and learning for catastrophically WII veterans, caregivers, and their families across our country who are struggling financially during the pandemic. This BWF grant will decrease financial stress for 19 veteran households during COVID-19.
