The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) offers a variety of services to Marines and Sailors, both active duty and retired, and their families. Among the services offered are:
- Financial assistance based on need (may take the form of an interest-free loan or grant).
- Visiting Nurse Program. Well Baby Clinic.
- Children's waiting rooms at medical facilities.
- Budget counseling.
- Thrift shops.
***The NMCRS can only process a family member's request for financial assistance if the service member has a completed and signed permission card on file with the local NMCRS office. If no card has been signed prior to deployment, a General Power of Attorney can be used. To prevent possible delays, it is advisable to sign and submit the permission card prior to deployment just in case an emergency arises.
