In its work with military families in need, COSF touches on all three of our areas of interest, health, education and culture to make the lives of these heroes better and more fulfilling.
With more than 57,000 homeless veterans and an unemployment rate for post 9/11 veterans that is almost twice the national average, COSF provides critical case coordination and an integrated support network for those seeking assistance.
COSF identified, vetted and established working relationships with hundreds of support organizations most sensitive to the complexities of military service.

Working with the TD Foundation, COSF provided Yarborough with enough rent money to keep his family in their home.
COSF also collaborates with Operation First Response, Family of a Vet and the Tragedy Assistance Program to provide real world resources regarding financial aid, long-term emotional help and connections to community-based care.
COSF will partner in the annual Spirit of '45 Memorial Day this May in Washington, D.
COSF increases the American public's understanding of the sacrifice and service of our troops, veterans and families through ongoing awareness efforts.
