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.
