Special Assistance

The Special Assistance Fund provides assistance to unit members and their families during an event in their life where established insurances and other charitable organizations fall short such as hardships, medical issues, child learning ability testing, and other challenges that arise.

The Special Assistance learning ability testing program for children of KIA/KIT/current and veteran members assigned to the unit who have been unable to secure funding for testing from other sources.  Specialized testing for possible mental health issues, dyslexia, speech or reading problems, and over 50 other types of issues typically cost $2K.  Testing is usually done in children in pre-school up through 4th grade, however older children may qualify for assistance as well.
