Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society
To provide, in partnership with the Navy and Marine Corps, financial, educational, and other need-based assistance to active-duty and retired Sailors and Marines, their eligible family members, and survivors.
As a non-profit, volunteer service organization, we use both financial and non-financial resources to identify solutions to meet emerging needs. We help clients improve personal financial skills and encourage individual financial responsibility.
WHAT WE OFFER
Our services are completely confidential. When you’re having trouble meeting urgent financial needs, we may be able to provide an interest-free loan or grant. Through financial counseling, we’ll also help you plan for better financial stability. From everyday bills to unexpected expenses, our caseworkers are ready to help. They understand the unique challenges of military life, and they’re ready to listen and suggest options to bring you needed relief.
When you need money fast, you may qualify for emergency financial assistance through an interest-free loan. Use it for basic living expenses, temporary needs, and family emergencies. There’s no application fee and no appointment needed. You can get up to $500 in minutes. Get the money you need quickly so you can get back to your responsibilities.
Interest Free Loans and Grants. The Society’s Education Assistance Program offers interest-free loans and grants for undergraduate/post-secondary education at an accredited 2- or 4-year education, technical or vocational institution in the United States. This financial assistance is available for children of active duty, retired or deceased Sailors and Marines; and for spouses of active duty and retired Sailors and Marines.
Supporting the Health and Emotional Needs of Navy and Marine Corps Families
The Society Visiting Nurse Program has been supporting Navy and Marine Corps families since 1922. Our nurses act as advocates, providing the health information and resources you need. We provide this support through our traditional Visiting Nurse Program and our Combat Casualty Assistance (CCA) Visiting Nurse Program.
Financial Education on Baby Expenses
Start your planning with our free Budget for Baby workshop. Learn what expenses you should plan for and how to make wise financial decisions.
Travelling to be with a sick or dying loved one often requires transportation. If you’re approved for emergency leave and need the money to travel, we can help you with an interest-free loan.
If your home is affected by a hurricane, tornado, flood, fire, or other disaster, you may need help right away. If your base is evacuated and you need to leave quickly, or if you can’t stay in your home, we can help.
Visit our thrift shops to get great prices on clothing, uniforms, and household goods. Stretch your budget with gently used items that cost much less than the same items that are brand new. Thrift shops are a great place to get temporary or permanent items if you’ve just moved, or if you’re replacing items lost in a fire or natural disaster.
We carefully inspect all of our donated items and only offer good quality items on our shelves. Our very low prices mean you get great savings. Our selection changes frequently, so make your nearest thrift shop one of your regular shopping destinations.
