"Let us be your first resource"
"Taking care of our own," the age-old adage of the Marine Corps, accurately describes the mission of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. Located in Building 645, the Society provides services for active duty and retired military personnel and their dependents. As a private, non-profit, volunteer service organization, the primary mission of the Society is to assist eligible persons in coping with immediate financial emergencies and needs using donated funds. The office is staffed with trained volunteers who assess needs and give financial counseling to enable clients to live within their means on a continuing basis. Assistance may be provided through confidential counseling, interest-free loans or grants, and referrals to various other agencies.
Emergencies, such as emergency travel, will be seen as soon as possible; an appointment is NOT necessary. To schedule an appointment for a budget or assistance, call the office at 928-269-2373. Normal operating hours are Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Expectant parents may attend our Budget for Baby Class prior to the birth of their baby or up to six months after their baby is born. As a thank you for attending the Budget for Baby class, participants will receive a gift card, a handmade blanket and a folder full of resources. This class is a financial planning tool to get ready for the added expenses of another family member. Contact our office to register.
The NMCRS Thrift Shop is located in Building 645 and operates several days a week. The shop is run by volunteers and contains many useable items for sale at low cost. The shop has a good selection of household items, toys, books, clothing and other miscellaneous items for sale at reasonable prices. Good, durable, re-saleable items may be left in the box beside the building or be brought into the shop during open hours. We cannot accept large items or furniture. The Uniform Locker is also available as a resource offering gently used uniform items at very low prices. Money made through sales goes directly back to help Marines and Sailors in need. Contact the office for more information and current operating hours at 928-269-2373.
Volunteers are the work force of the Society and are always needed. Anyone interested in volunteering for any of our programs should call or drop by the office for more information. For financial emergencies on weekends, holidays, and after normal working hours, call the American Red Cross Emergency Service Center, toll-free: 1-877-272-7337.
