Founded by and for military families, OSC provides direct support to wounded service members in financial crisis – most of whom have experienced combat injury or illness but are awaiting the initiation of veterans' benefits. Assistance for essential expenses like rent, utilities, and mortgage payments helps prevent families from going into debt or losing a home. OSC also coordinates retreats, sports events, hospital visits, and more – boosting morale and helping veterans transition back into civilian life, reconnect with family, and build a network of peers. Referrals to other resources help meet additional needs, whether it’s counseling for post-traumatic stress disorder, or home renovations to improve wheelchair accessibility. And through Operation Giving Back, veterans and their family members can support OSC’s mission, working as paid interns to serve others like themselves. These families have given … so much.
