The grant helps provide ongoing critical Care Coordination and emergency financial assistance for low-income veterans and their families during COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all New Hampshire residents, but thanks to the generosity of the Disabled Veterans National Foundation, Easterseals NH Military & Veterans Services has been able to quickly and efficiently help service members, veterans and their families with a wide range of family, personal and financial challenges.
The restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic have made it challenging for people to access the services they rely on for their health and well-being. Easterseals is grateful for philanthropic partners, including the Disabled Veterans National Foundation, who provided the financial support needed to continue services for low-income veterans and their families. The grant from the Disabled Veterans National Foundation will ensure that veterans continue to receive critical Care Coordination to ensure their health and well-being during the pandemic.
