Dear Supporter,
 
If you've been reading recent emails from Code of Support, you have seen the faces of some of the people we have been helping and learned of the real impact our support has had on their lives. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that you have helped change peoples lives for the better. That's why I get up every morning with a renewed sense of purpose.
 
Our website has a "Get Help" button for service members, veterans and their families to give us the information we need to get started with their case and pull together the varied resources they need to get back on their feet and make their family whole. Those two words on our website are the full extent of the publicity we have used to let our heroes know about the unique services we have been providing. The truth is that word of mouth alone, plus referrals we get from the VA and other organizations like the Wounded Warrior Project® keep us running at (or beyond) full capacity. We simply could not handle the workload if we made a broader public announcement. Unfortunately, that means that a lot of those who are struggling are not getting the help that we could be giving them.
 
Of course the reason for all of this is that our resources are limited. Now that we have a proven model for our unique approach to support, along with a collaboration tool that we have built to make this process more efficient, we are stepping up our fundraising efforts to bring our operations to scale. This includes asking people like you and a broader slice of the general public to help us make an even bigger difference.
 
Yours in service,


MG Alan B. Salisbury, Ret.
CEO & Founder
Code of Support Foundation

Thank you!


It's people like you that help service members, veterans and their families in crisis by supporting our case coordination program.


This year we have already helped over 250 veterans and their families get the critical, one-on-one assistance they need and deserve. Two of those people are, Dylan & Haley, the children of a veteran who came to us in crisis. With your help we were able to help their entire family get the help they needed. We were able to provide them with food, warm clothes for the winter and we even put on a special thanksgiving dinner with our team to bring a little more joy to their holiday season.

Without supporters and people like you, we couldn't provide the critical help our veterans and their families need. So we wanted to pass this thank you on from Dylan & Haley.
