Life can change in an instant, especially for our nation’s defenders and their families
The Gary Sinise Foundation’s Relief & Resiliency Outreach program was established to provide complete support to those recovering from trauma, injury or loss in times of urgent need. We’re also helping to heal their emotional wounds by hosting exciting events and group activities for those enduring similar struggles. By building a community of strong friendships and forming joyful, lasting memories, they can find new hopes for the future together. Lending a helping hand during difficult times can become the pivotal moment that changes a life’s direction.

Our Mentorship Program
Healing comes from within. That's why the Gary Sinise Foundation, in collaboration with the Disabled American Veterans Foundation and Boulder Crest Retreat, began introducing post-9/11 injured heroes to wounded veterans from the Vietnam and Korean Wars. Over the course of a seven-day retreat, younger heroes at the beginning of their rehabilitation are paired with older veterans who have successfully overcome similar struggles. Since 2015, we’ve been providing these life-changing experiences in a safe environment for mentorship, growth, and friendship.

"I wanted to thank you and all who made the assistance possible, it meant a great deal to me during this time of ‘seemingly endless bad luck’... Again I say thank you from the deepest part of my heart and will remember always the kindness afforded to me."
