What is Reserve Aid?

ReserveAid is a 501©(3) nonprofit organization that makes need based grants to military families who have a Reservist or National Guard member on full time deployment or who has recently returned from deployment to a combat zone or homeland security position.
 

About Their Needs

ReserveAid is currently assisting families of Reservists and National Guard members at the rate of approximately $65,000 per month – and the need that exists is far greater. The assistance needed by our heroes is far greater than what ReserveAid is able to provide.

ReserveAid does not make loans. Our objective is to meet every valid emergency financial need of service members and their dependents within 48 hours of grant approval.

Requests often include:

  • Rent/mortgage payment
  • Assistance with utility bills (power, heat)
  • Car payment
  • Car insurance
  • Wal-Mart gift card for food & fuel

Reserve Aid does not assist with credit card payments or cable TV.
 

Our Approach

ReserveAid works closely with the Veterans Administrations and representatives from the military services to help identify reservists who may be in need. ReserveAid helps members of all branches of the military.
