Our Purpose

To provide emergency assistance and relief to members of the Indiana National Guard and their families who are undergoing periods of personal or financial distress due to a period of mobilization or other military duty.

Force Readiness through Individual Preparedness.  Duty-related stressors, particularly when in dangerous situations, can put the Soldier, Airman and his/her unit in harm’s way.  Stress can lead to  anxiety, depression and even suicide.  INGRF exists to help the Guard and his/her family to relieve those stressors and improve force readiness.
