The Callen Foundation provides limited financial assistance to the families for active duty Ohio military families. Through the efforts of our Board of Trustees, several of whom are military veterans, and our Business Partners will attempt to raise as much money for the benefit of these families as possible. 

We provide active duty Ohio military families emergency financial assistance on a rapid basis. Our focus is on those families with the most urgent needs of day to day life such as late utility bills, rent & car payments, food and basic living necessities.  We offer assistance as a  one time evnet. 


All referrals for assistance are vetted by only accepting referrals from the Ohio National Guard's Family Assistance Centers located trhoughout Ohio.  In order to be good stewards of our public donations is is our policy to not offer funding to anyone where our gift will not prevent the same situation from occuring at the next billing due date.
