Veterans - Battle Buddy

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with challenges of our Veterans, both young and old.
We focus on the basic human needs of food, shelter and hope.
Following years of research, strong collaborative partnerships and committed individuals, foundations and corporations, United Military Care is prepared to meet the needs of our growing senior Veteran population through our proven Battle Buddy program..
Our Battle Buddy program features three tiers of care to ensure our clients are eating healthy, socially active and receive personalized accurate information in times of need.

Fresh Fruit & Snacks
1:6 elderly veterans struggle with hunger in Georgia and over half say that they usually eat only one meal a day. Our volunteers will deliver fresh fruit, vegetables, and healthy snacks once per month to each Battle Buddy to help combat food insecurity and poor nutrition. We will also assist with SNAP and Meals on Wheels applications.
Care You Need
United Military Care collaborates with agencies and organizations throughout Georgia to provide top level care and assistance for Senior Battle Buddies to include home repair, meal-delivery, activities, transportation, pet assistance and more. Our visits are not drop and run, we get to know the Veteran and help where we can.
Respect & Remember
Each Battle Buddy client will receive an in-person social visit whereby we socialize, assess needs and discuss opportunities. Our volunteers deliver books, magazines, puzzles and more and follow up with hand written letters and phone calls throughout the month. We are waging war against Veteran isolation and loneliness.
