The CSC realized that American Legion Aid (ALA) of NC provided grant funds for Military Families with children, and gave the spouse the contact information. On 1 September the spouse told the CSC that ALA believed they could assist, and had called the local Adjutant (American Legion Post 88 Brevard) who would take the application. On 2 September  the spouse came into the ASCC and met with the Adjutant and filled out the application. With the assistance of the CSC, the application was submitted.

On 25 September the CSC heard wonderful news—ALA provided $1,970.00 to this Family, which covered the deposit, first month’s rent, and paid the utility bill.
