Our mission is to provide support to the families of those who have been wounded, injured or killed during combat operations. The families of our casualties suffer in many ways: some financially, some psychologically.
“When America Goes to War…
Our Families Go to War”

Mission: USA Cares exists to help bear the burdens of service by providing post-9/11 military families with financial and advocacy support in their time of need. Assistance is provided to all branches of service, all components, all ranks while protecting the privacy and dignity of those military families and veterans who request our help.
Geographic areas served: USA Cares is a National 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Programs: We assist post-9/11 active military, veterans and their families by providing financial assistance grants and educational support for hardships caused by their military service.
Our brave men and women in uniform understand duty, honor, and sacrifice. Many have returned home with both the visible scars, and the unseen wounds of war.
Please give us the opportunity to show you what we can do to provide hope for the warriors in darkness and the families who love and support them.
SCUBA Diving is a sport that challenges veterans to explore a completely different environment: the undersea world! Veterans Ocean Adventures offers DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING, a three hour introduction to the sport conducted in a pool setting. After veterans receive a brief familiarization of the equipment and a basic overview of skills needed they proceed to the deep end of the pool under the supervision of an instructor. Here veterans experience breathing on SCUBA while floating weightless in the water column! Veterans Ocean Adventures connects those interested in pursuing certification with instructors who understand their needs and with community resources for financial assistance, if needed, to offset the cost of training. Veterans Ocean Adventures sponsors or co-hosts special events such as Veterans Dives, Adaptive SCUBA training and the Weeki Wachee Warrior Challenge.
