Mission Statement

HHN is committed to healing Americas Heroes by providing financial assistance for quality care to military personnel injured in the line of duty in Iraq or Afghanistan since 9/11/01. Through communication, education, and community outreach, HHN strives to bring awareness of the often untreated injuries sustained in war and the desperate need for our services.
Through a nationwide network of professionals willing to provide a wide array of therapies and services, and funding from generous donors, HHN aids these brave wounded warriors in receiving much needed therapies. While the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs is diligent in providing treatments to our injured military, the scope of covered services can be limited, delayed, or unavailable. HHN fills in the gaps for these desperately needed services and aids those who sacrifice for our freedoms.

Program 2

Welcome Home Hero

Welcome Home Hero is a program that is dedicated to supporting military service members and their families, in times of need and financial struggle. When a service member returns home from serving their country, the transition back into civilian life can be difficult and a struggle, not only on the service member, but for the family as a whole. Many service members face employment struggles due to combat injuries they have sustained. Welcome Home, Hero provides assistance for these service members and their families in receiving productive life and rehabilitative assistance. We help our country’s service members overcome many of their transition obstacles by providing financial assistance for basic needs, such as food, clothing, electricity payments, utilities, rent, and many other life necessities.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"On behalf of everyone at Healing Heroes Network, and the countless injured American veterans in need of medical help, thank you for your interest! Your support today could help heal a hero tomorrow.

Since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 and the subsequent war on terror, thousands of members of our armed forces have been injured in the line of duty defending our freedom and protecting the United States of America. Often these men and women are unable to receive the medical treatments that would facilitate their return to a productive civilian life. While the Department of Veterans Affairs provides treatment to these troops, the scope of covered services is limited and sometimes unavailable.

That's where Healing Heroes Network steps in. As a wounded veteran charity, we provide financial assistance for desperately needed therapies and services not currently provided or covered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

We hope to inform, and ignite your passion to help heal our nation's bravest protectors. We are proud to support our nation's Heroes and provide services to them at no cost. With your interest and generosity, we can help heal every returning service member wounded in combat, that needs help now."
