We’re building specially adapted smart homes for our most severely wounded veterans and providing home modifications, mobility devices & adapted vehicles to our injured, wounded, ill, and/or aging heroes.

Our Community Outreach & Education programs are bridging the gap between our defender and civilian communities. We're sending WWII veterans and students to tour The National WWII Museum, recording the Greatest Generation's oral histories, serving hearty meals that show our gratitude, connecting with local veterans through theatre, enlisting ambassadors to educate and inspire communities, and hosting events in an incredible exhibit that encourages service over self.

1,121veterans & their guardians have participated in our Soaring Valor experiences
203high school students have accompanied our Soaring Valor veterans

...but there are so many more lives we can impact.

Our firefighters, police, and EMTs routinely put their own lives at risk by rushing into danger. Too often, these heroes are performing with limited resources. Our First Responders Outreach is providing grants for emergency relief, training, and essential equipment to ensure they perform to the best of their abilities.

445essential pieces of equipment donated by the Gary Sinise Foundation
