“…for a few weeks during the COVID pandemic, in early fall 2020, me and my family ran into some sudden financial hardships. It was a very drastic time for us and things were not looking good. All we could do is continue reaching out and hope for the best. We were referred to Citizen Soldier Connection through some mutual friends and resources who really showed a great deal of concern for our situation and understood how dire it had become. Within a very short time they responded with the help we desperately needed and assisted with resolving our circumstances tremendously - we are more than grateful for the compassion and support of Citizen Soldier Connection.”

“…By God’s grace, just a few days before Christmas, we got the most amazing blessing from Citizen Soldier Connection. It paid for four months of daycare so that I can continue my education, which in turn gives my children an amazing education where they have been thriving in their classes. You allowed me to continue to work during the week to supplement our income and introduced us to an amazing friendship and support system through your organization. We are both so blessed and so grateful for the gift – words cannot describe our appreciation.”

"Citizen Soldier Connection received a call that a wounded veteran had no electricity in the bathroom in their apartment. The maintenance people were not going to be able to get to his request for a few days. Citizen Soldier Connection were able to get a handyman dispatched to his residence the same day and got everything back into working order…. and CSC picked up the bill."

“…I was overcome with gratefulness as I looked at your check. This past Christmas was the toughest and most emotional Christmas of my life. I will never forget what you did for me. There are no words to fully express how you all have helped my daughter and me.”

I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for Citizen Soldier Connection. In my time of need, with an unexpected replacement of a water heater, they showed up in a big way. I have been attending to personal hardships, and am currently transitioning out of the military. I was ill prepared for this event and was not in a place, financially, to shoulder the cost of the replacement. I shared my concerns with my Recovery Care Coordinator, who then reached out to a contact of his to aid me in this endeavor. A couple days later, he called me with the wonderful news that Citizen Soldier Connection would support me and pay for the costs of the water heater. I was floored and in tears, as the kindness of the gesture washed over me. They relieved a huge burden off of my shoulders, affording me one less stress to worry about as my life moves on to a different chapter. Thank you so much for this blessing!

We were new to the Springs, and I was going through the most difficult season of my life battling cancer. Citizen Soldier Connection reached out and helped us pay medical bills uncovered by insurance during the Christmas season. It is such a blessing to know we have kind, friendly people in our new city looking out for military families and taking care of our needs. Thank you!

We found ourselves in a really tight spot recently and these wonderful people gave us the chance to recover. This was just what we needed to get back on our feet and it seemed too good to be true. We are so grateful and hope to contribute when we are able to! Blessings!
