Resources for Service Members, Veterans, and Family Members
December 16, 2021
At Soldiers’ Angels, we understand holidays and anniversaries can be a difficult time for those we support in America’s military-connected community. Our Angel Volunteers and staff seek to provide the best help possible, but acknowledge that some challenges are deeply personal and outside of our control. Please know that help is available at any time. Below is a list of resources we have vetted and are available to support your mental wellbeing, healthcare, and find the help you or your loved ones need.
If you’re a Veteran in crisis or concerned about one, there are caring, qualified VA responders standing by to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Veterans Crisis Line is a free, anonymous, confidential resource that’s available to anyone, even if you’re not registered with VA or enrolled in VA health care.

The Semper Fi Fund, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and its program America’s Fund, are set up to provide immediate financial assistance and lifetime support for wounded, critically ill and injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. We direct urgently needed resources to post 9/11 service members, who meet our criteria for assistance, from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Reserves.
Combined Arms focuses on the veteran transition experience by providing comprehensive support to military members and their families as they transition to civilian life.
