Helping Homeland Heroes was founded by veterans and their families to help our fellow brothers and sisters who have fallen upon hardships and don’t know where to turn, or are struggling to assimilate back into civilian life. That is why our mantra here at Helping Homeland Heroes is “Vets Helping Vets”.
Our Directors and volunteers know the trials and tribulations that plague most soldiers after they return home because many of our volunteers within the organization have experienced the same thing. Now, we look to help those who are suffering and having difficulties, or struggling with their own personal war at home.
Our group knows what troubles may lay ahead and we use our own personal experiences and resources to reach out and help our fellow soldiers who desperately need help. So many soldiers return home thinking that their fight is over, but many have invisible wounds that people cannot see with the naked eye.
These wounds carry ammunition that fuel the fight inside each soldier who is battling his own personal war at home. Most soldiers aren’t trained to fight this type of battle so they do not know how to attack it or even what to do.
Helping Homeland Heroes is committed to fighting this battle on the home front because we know the damage it can cause, and where it leads to. Our mission is to help those that need it and raise awareness about this issue so we do not lose more soldiers who come home from war, only to lose their own personal war at home.
Helping Homeland Heroes is partnered with Homes of Light and VetCar, and we also work directly with the Veterans Administration and United Way. Helping Homeland Heroes has been working to raise awareness and help soldiers who are suffering in cities all over the US. We have also been travelling around and working with other veteran nonprofit organizations in various cities in order to team up and fight the same battle.
This war has been growing here at home for some time now. Our goal is to help everyone we can and reduce the startling high suicide rate of 22 veterans a day. That means that 1 veteran is taking their own life every 65 minutes of every day. This terrifying number needs to be addressed because it is nothing short of an epidemic.
Helping Homeland Heroes, Homes of Light, and VetCar have helped hundreds of vets from all over the US. Homes of Light works directly with the VA to get wounded vets medical treatment and/or counseling, as well as helping them to acquire their benefits. We also place them in a home with other veterans who have gone through similar experiences and are working to restore their sense of self, along with their families.
Each soldier is given a case manager in order to help them progress and reintegrate back into society. They are provided with assistance and numerous resources in order to go to school, or begin a new career.
A majority of these vets going through this hardship all seem to have the same problem: NO CAR. That is where VetCar comes to the rescue. This innovative program puts a vet into their OWN car with only $175 down, and no more than $175 per month, with 0% interest! This groundbreaking program is helping so many vets who were stuck with no end in sight.
Now, they are able to get to work and provide for their families, and they also have the ability to continue healing their invisible wounds.
