ARFP Assists Soldiers and Families with Real Issues

Army Strong Community Center (ASCC) Connects Employment Resource with Soldiers and Veterans

During the Women Veterans Resource Expo event, the ASCC Brevard Customer Support Coordinator (CSC) met the Services Regional Coordinator from Operation: GoodJobs (OGJ), Goodwill Industries of Northwest NC. OGJ is a partnership with Walmart Foundation whose motto is “Putting Veterans and their Families back to work.” It is a comprehensive A-Z career approach, staffed by former Military Veterans and Retirees who understand the challenge of transitioning from Military to civilian employment. The CSC has referred Army Reserve Soldiers and Veterans to the local Asheville OGJ with good results. Once the OGJ Regional Coordinator learned about the ASCC, he asked the CSC to send an ASCC monthly newsletter to all ten (10) Western NC Operation GoodJobs offices. The ASCC will also relay the OGJ program to Army Reserve Unit Commanders, for an efficient, one-on-one employment subject expert for Soldiers and their Family members.

Fort Family Outreach and Support Connects Soldier with Emergency Resources

Fort Family received an online request from a mobilized Soldier ordered to report to the 5502 USAR Hospital in Aurora, Colorado.  The Soldier stated that upon arrival he found there to be no lodging available and his orders did not authorize him to use his government travel card. Additionally he had no funds to pay for extended lodging.  Fort Family connected him with the Red Cross to process an after-hours application for emergency financial aid.  Connections were also provided with his Family Programs Director, USA Cares, Un-met needs program, Reserve aid, Volunteers of America, and the local Vet Center.  During a follow up call the Soldier reported that he secured lodging, his orders have been amended to allow him to use his travel card and his travel advance was received.

ASCC Connects Veteran Cancer Patient with Resource for Lift Chair

The ASCC Rochester Customer Support Coordinator (CSC) spoke to a Family member of a Coast Guard and Army National Guard Veteran who was fighting stage 4 Liver Cancer. He was having difficulties with getting up from his recliner and needed a lift chair. The CSC collaborated with the Regional Center for Independent Living to loan a Lift Assist device for up to 10 weeks at no cost to the Veteran. The Regional Center for Independent Living Loan Closet will save the Veteran over $1,000 by not having to purchase a Lift Chair.

Survivor Outreach Services Connects Survivor with Transportation Resource

The SOS Support Coordinator at the 76 Operation Support Command (ORC) in Salt Lake City, Utah received a call from a Survivor indicating her need for transportation to a medical appointment for eye surgery.  The Support Coordinator reached out to the County Aging Services and coordinated transportation for the Survivor.  The Survivor was then able to confirm her appoint with the hospital that same day and was extremely grateful.
