The Deployments…

Military personnel will deploy for an average of 6-18 months even during peaceful times. They will often miss birthdays, anniversaries and holidays to serve our country.

The Families…

There has been an increase of dual-military relationships, roughly accounting for 85,000 dual-military couples currently serving in the U.S. This means double the deployments and double the moves.

The Distance…

Military families relocate 10 times more often than civilian families, averaging out to one move every 2-3 years. These moves are often demanding on emotional and financial levels for the entire family.

Cathe Robling, PROUD Foundation Board President

“The Navy Marine Corps PROUD Foundation has been assisting San Diego Marines, Sailors, and their families with financial difficulties or emergencies since March 2018. The Foundation has been able to raise over $70,000 and assist 547 Active Duty, Retired or Military family members since being founded.

In March 2020, many things began to change, both for the PROUD Foundation and for the World.  The COVID-19 Pandemic has had an immeasurable effect on our jobs, schools, and our families.  Today there are more Military members in need of assistance (food, cleaning supplies, financial aid, or emotional support) than ever before.  The PROUD Foundation continues to supply Gas and Food Gift cards to our six local Navy Marine Corps Relief Society offices to distribute to those in need.  Also, the PROUD Foundation has been helping to feed our Military Families who are currently facing economic hardship through a donation to the San Diego Armed Services YMCA Emergency Food Assistance Program. Non-perishable food items are being provided to hundreds of military families because of military spouses losing their jobs during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Our need is great and we ask for your support by either donating and/or volunteering to the PROUD Foundation.  In the past, those who have contributed have made it possible for PROUD to assist service members with vehicle repairs, help to put food on the table, or assist with transportation needs by providing gas for their cars. Thank you in advance for your support to the PROUD Foundation! “
