Veterans, Afghans or their families who need help due to the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan are eligible for assistance from the Independence Line – a new call center launched by The Independence Fund and Loyal Source.
“With tens of thousands of Afghan men, women and children arriving in the United States, it is critical to help these refugees navigate America’s complex refugee and asylum systems and ensure that America’s veterans receive the care and benefits they need, where and when they need them, ”said Sarah Verardo, CEO of The Independence Fund. “We want Veterans, Afghans, their families and friends to know that the Independence Fund is there for them.
The Independence Line is made up of professionals qualified to help people get the resources they need.
Callers can find help with housing, food, mental health, health care, clothing, legal aid, and a host of other resources. Call center staff also work with The Independence Fund’s case management team to find the best and fastest services to fill the gaps.
Veterans, Afghans and their families are encouraged to call The Independence Line toll-free number 1-855-341-5456 for assistance. The call center is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET.
