Warrior and Caregiver Resources

Cause provides just one piece to the puzzle of ensuring care, comfort, and resiliency to military families. Here is a list of some additional beneficial resources. If your organization would like to be included, please contact us

General Assistance

  • The Veterans Crisis Line connects Veterans in crisis and their families and friends with qualified, caring Department of Veteran Affiars responders through a confidential toll-free hotline, online chat, or text. Veterans and their loved ones can call 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1, chat online, or send a text message to 838255 to receive confidential support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

  • Operation Homefront (OH) provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.

  • The mission of Hope For The Warriors® is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.

  • TAPS is the 24/7 tragedy assistance resource for ANYONE who has suffered the loss of a military loved one, regardless of the relationship to the deceased or the circumstance of the death.

  • The Yellow Ribbon Fund helps bridge the gap while injured service members are recovering in the Washington, DC, area at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital.

  • Providing a "home away from home" for military families to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for an illness, disease or injury.

  • The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit set up to provide immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families, regardless of what branch they serve. We direct urgently needed resources to post 9-11 service members within 24-72 hours of request.

  • Military OneSource provides specialty consultations for wounded warriors and their caregivers. These consultants provide a safety net through personal and detailed phone conversations instead of automated responses or a link to a website. The dedicated staff at Military OneSource works collaboratively with the service wounded warrior programs, TRICARE and the Department of Veterans Affairs to create an action plan within 72 hours of the initial call.

Assistance for Caregivers & Families

  • The CRD is designed to help empower military caregivers with information about national-level resources and programs specifically for them. Topics include: helplines, advocacy and benefit information, career transitions and employment, military caregiver support, children’s needs, education and training, financial support, rest and relaxation and much more.

  • MilitaryKidsConnect (MKC) is an online community of military children (ages 6-17 yr old) that provides access to age-appropriate resources to support children from pre-deployment, through a parent's or caregiver's return.

  • Recognizing the need for first-rate media-based resources to support military families, in 2006, Sesame Workshop launched the bilingual (English/Spanish), multimedia outreach initiative Talk, Listen, Connect: Helping Families During Military Deployment (TLC).
