This site is intended to provide a single point to help locate aid programs that may help now-unemployed service employees in this difficult time. The site was created and is maintained entirely on a volunteer basis. If you wish to help, please support the programs noted below, and if you have suggestions or wish to get in touch, please contact us using the form at the bottom of the page.
We realize there are many service employees in many disciplines and most are affected. We will add programs for any discipline we can find, but you can help by submitting any info you may have using the form at the bottom. Help us help your friends and family – we’re all in this together!
