Relief & Resiliency


Heal, overcome, persevere & excel. Our H.O.P.E. initiative provides complete support to those who have experienced trauma, illness, injury, or loss during their times of tragedy, sometimes with assistance as simple as help paying bills or buying groceries.


the untold stories

Our defenders and first responders are aware of the risks in their professions, but nothing can prepare them or their families for the pain of separation, trauma, and loss.


pivotal moments

When our heroes or their loved ones experience dark times, we seek to provide support and hope. Lending a hand in a difficult moment can change the course of an entire life.



Bringing people together who have shared a common life trauma helps form a network of support. By sharing their experiences and reminding one another they are not alone, these groups can find joy in the present once again.

our impact



I’m still amazed at the effort so many wonderful people put in to pull this whole adventure off flawlessly! You guys are all great, and you really did make it very special. Thank you for everything!

After weeks of dealing with round-the-clock response and recovery efforts, a mix of emotions, and everything that comes with handling one of the biggest natural disasters in U.S. history, our office needed something to look forward to. Your generous gift allowed many of our first responders to have a better Thanksgiving as many of them also lost their homes to Harvey.
