Comfort for Courage
Comfort for Courage is a student-led movement at the University of Minnesota, which recognizes the role U.S. service members hold in the defense of our nation and the protection of our shared freedoms. We collect, manage and distribute resources for the sole purpose of providing comfort for deployed service members and their families. CfC recently established the Veterans Transition on the University of Minnesota to provide Veterans with a one-stop shop for resources to help them with a variety of needs, such as GI Bill benefits and physical and psychological needs.
