We are a team of volunteers who work tirelessly to lend a hand in a variety of ways to help active duty military, veterans and their families. We rely heavily of the support of our community and we believe that servicemen and woman deserve the very best.

We are dedicated to providing an array of resources to help overcome the struggles of re-acclimation. Because we under-stand that “It takes a village” we encourage you to contact us to join our community of givers by donating.

GET THE FACTS

Serving overseas can be a harrowing experience but what awaits our service men and women at home may be even worse:

  • 1 in 3 returning troops are being diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress symptoms,  less than 40% will seek help.
  • 2 of 3 marriages are failing for those that suffer with combat trauma.
  • Homelessness is on the rise; 1/3rd of our Nation’s homeless are veterans. • About 1.4 million veterans are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty,  lack of support networks and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.

and more…

Veteran unemployment is nearly twice the national average. Young Veterans who joined the military after high school and went off to war are at a disadvantage when competing for civilian jobs with peers who didn’t serve. Vets often don’t have easily translatable civilian skills, nor do they have the network of civilian business and social contacts that other young people have. Unless they apply with companies who place a priority on hiring Veterans, they are in a tough spot competing with other job seekers.

One out of every three Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans suffers from PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or a combination of the two due to combat trauma. Upon returning home, our troops are not receiving proper medical and psychological evaluation or counseling. It’s up to them to seek the help they need and often this help is not easy to find or to access.

There is a backlog of 1.2 million claims at the Veterans Administration. The VA application process remains complicated and adversarial. Veterans are not automatically enrolled in the VA, as many people think, when they finish their military service. They need help finding VA facilities, completing complicated applications, managing the application process and appealing rejected claims. Many Veterans who are disabled and unable to work due to war trauma are waiting months and years for benefits they were promised and have earned. This results in many Vets with significant financial problems that can end up homeless or worse.

Who We Serve

The Homeland Heroes Foundation along with many families from our wonderful community, banded together to help this young navy reservist and her 2 beautiful little girls get back on their feet.

The truth is most of us have experienced being down and out at least one time in our lives, and how wonderful it is to have someone come along to pick up a few pieces and help us get back up. HHF is truly delighted to have been able to be that for this young family by donating: a kitchen set, a 3 piece living room set, end tables, bunk beds and bureau for the girls, a 42″ flat screen TV and many other household items.

While we are thrilled that this young family can take a deep breath and know that we care enough to support them in this way, it is us, the givers who revel in the fact that we have done something good for someone else. HHF is honored and thrilled to have been able to be a positive part of this young woman’s journey.
