Ohio's Special Project:

2017-2018 Special Project: "Making Our Veterans Wishes Come True" thru The Military Family Assistance Fund

The Military Family Assistance Fund is a Department of Ohio American Legion Auxiliary Program developed in order to to come to direct aid of our veterans and their families right here in Ohio.

The program offers financial assistance for eligible veterans and their families. There is money available to assist in covering the costs of maintaining basic family needs such as the costs of shelter, food, utilities, and health expenses. Helping to keep a stable home environment. Funding can include, but is not limited to, family living expenses including rent, mortgage payment and utility bills; medical expenses; childcare for working parents; insurance premiums, and assist with necessary home repairs.

It is not necessary to be a member of the American Legion or American Legion Auxiliary to apply. Assistance is in the form of a grant and doesn't not have to be paid back. We only ask that you “pay it forward” and someday do a good deed for another.

Since its inception in 2012, the Ohio Military Family Assistance Fund has assisted 43 families totaling over $50,000.00 in financial assistance. Think you want to help out. Check out the link below to make a donation.
