DOWNERS GROVE, IL (June 9, 2015): MortgageKeeper Referral Services, Inc. announced today an agreement with Code of Support Foundation (COSF) to assist military service members, veterans, and their families across the country with its MKDesktop application. There are 22 million Veterans in the U.S. and an estimated 30% who are in crisis. COSF provides essential and critical one-on-one assistance to those struggling service members, veterans, and their families who have the most complex needs. Within the past two years, COSF has seen tremendous expansion in the demand for its case coordination services and is rapidly increasing its efforts to meet that demand.
The MKDesktop App will assist COSF in providing direct local connection to agencies and programs that can address urgent needs and help build financial health. COSF’s team of trained case coordinators and veteran peer navigators using MKDesktop will provide targeted local referrals as they identify, prioritize, and fulfill the often multiple and complex needs of these families. This includes assisting with reducing food, utility, prescription, health insurance, childcare, and home repair costs.
“MKDesktop is a great tool that Code of Support uses every day as we work with veteran’s seeking assistance. Many of our veterans require multiple resources, so we work to leverage the full spectrum of resources across the country. MKDesktop helps us point service members and their families to local programs that can make the difference in their daily lives,” said Kristina Kaufman, Code of Support Foundation Executive Director. “Code of Support strives to provide service members, veterans, and their families with as many options as possible to help them through difficult times. Our partnership with MortgageKeeper boosts our ability to provide local, targeted help to veterans.”
“Code of Support is committed to service members, veterans, and their families and this is just another example doing all they can to help. Our products enhance their strategy,” said Rochelle Nawrocki Gorey, President of MortgageKeeper. “With the addition of MK’s technology—Code of Support’s case coordinators and veteran peer navigators will have additional tools available that will help bridge the military civilian divide.”
MKDesktop is used by more than 2,000 nonprofit financial counselors, coaches, and case managers, and provides 8,500 best-in-class local nonprofit and government services in every state. Users simply type in the ZIP Code and choose from 25 different assistance service categories.
