OUR MISSION

Active Heroes’ mission is to strengthen active duty military, veterans and their families in order to provide the coping skills to manage the stress and the triggering points that lead to suicide.


Active Heroes is dedicated to connecting and helping America’s military families through physical and mental therapy, home repairs and community outreach, financial assistance and community reintegration to halt the triggering points and stress associated with “hard times” that lead to suicide.

Programs

Active Heroes Retreat

Developed, designed and built by veterans and their families to help veterans and their families. The Active Heroes retreat will help with post traumatic stress disorder and suicide prevention by teaching veterans and their families to heal through physical therapy activities and mental therapy classes. Also, The Active Heroes Retreat will engage military families through video therapy. Family members will be able to leave messages to future visiting families to learn about PTSD, TBI, marriage issues and everyday life lessons. The development of the retreat will be ongoing during 2013 with a $250,000 grant from The Home Depot Foundation. Phase 1 of the retreat will cost $1 mm to build and we are now taking donations to help with the funding.

Donate Now

We are currently raising funds to build The Active Heroes Retreat. You can help hundreds of military families visit the retreat by donating to this program. We hope to open the Active Heroes Retreat by 2015 to bring together many veterans and build leaders that help veterans in their own communities

Wounded Veteran Lifetime Funds

At the beginning of each year, Active Heroes selects several wounded veterans to support t with an annual endowment fund. Wounded veterans are more likely to need assistance to halt the triggering point and stress associated with “hard times” that lead to suicide.

Many wounded veterans struggle to fix their homes, that’s where our Wounded Veteran Lifetime Funds program helps the most.
