First Responders Outreach

First Responders Outreach

Our firefighters, police, and EMTs are indispensable to the safety of our communities. It’s a perilous job, and oftentimes these heroes must perform with limited resources.


Tireless Efforts

When crises occur, our Firefighters, Police, and EMTs put their own lives at risk to save others. They answer the call, rush toward danger, and lead the way.


Strengthen our Defenders

Through the Gary Sinise Foundation’s First Responders Outreach, we provide help to critical funding for emergency relief, training, and essential equipment to ensure these heroes perform to the best of their abilities.


Restore Independence, Support Empowerment

We also help those who are severely wounded in the line of duty by building 100% mortgage-free, specially adapted smart homes, as well as home modifications, mobility devices, and adapted vehicles to restore their mobility and independence.

The Stories


I still can't believe it's our house. It's absolutely beautiful. I can't believe somebody would step in and do that for us. It just blew my mind. I can't thank the Gary Sinise Foundation enough. I can't thank the donors enough. From the bottom of my heart, thanks for giving a little bit of my life back.
