Current statistics reveal there are as many as 18 veteran suicides per day. This translates to 6,500 a year, or more than 50,000 of our bravest citizens who have taken their own lives since 2003. These statistics are absolutely heart breaking. To prevent more tragic deaths, we want to provide a way to reach out to as many Veterans as we possibly can. To this end, we are determined to provide a different social and recreational environment for wounded Veterans--one in which they can continue their healing process and focus on their future instead of their past.

Why Donate:

At AHERO, we heal the physical and psychological wounds of war and military service by:
  • Introducing Veterans to resources and programs available to them to increase their overall quality of life.
  • Developing an informal support network of Veterans across the country.
  • Encouraging constructive communication and engagement.
  • Boosting Morale.
