What happens when a veteran comes home from a tour and is without a job, without a place to live and has bills to pay? What happens when a family struggles financially when a loved one is serving overseas?

Military service often presents hardships to individuals and families. You can help by joining Veterans Count.

Veterans Count was created to ensure New Hampshire's veterans and their families do not have to endure personal struggles after sacrificing so much for our country. Veterans Count, quite simply, provides financial assistance to veterans and their families in need of emergency services.

This financial support may include, but is not limited to transportation, housing, rent, fuel assistance, utilities, vehicle repair, gasoline, food, child care, tuition and medical. This includes emergency funding during predeployment, deployment and return from service. A care plan is developed for each client to ensure that veterans, service members and their families receive the assistance they need to become self-sufficient.

We need your help! Veterans Count is a prestigious and truly effective means to make a profound and immediate impact in the lives of our military families.

This is a wonderful way to show your gratitude.
We hope you will join us today!

A Helping Hand...

“What a blessing to my family to have a resource like Easter Seals Veterans Count to be there for us during this transitional time—before my husband deploys and when he returns. Easter Seals’ rapid response to our needs was professionally and adequately given. Easter Seals has already given me hope and faith that we will be OK and won’t face the same chaos, fears and loneliness I faced two years ago the first time my husband was deployed. Knowing that I have support feels like a huge burden has been lifted.” 

—LilyBeth Nowack, wife of an Iraq veteran

 

I want to join the Veterans Count Club and make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families!
