Imagine waking up every day without one or more of your limbs, with severe burns, paralyzed, brain injury, depression or post-traumatic stress disorder. For thousands of War on Terror wounded veterans these are just some of the physical realities and challenges which will remain with them the rest of their lives – they need our support and help.
Impact A Hero provides immediate and ongoing emotional and financial support for our severely-wounded post-9/11 combat veterans and their families.
Impact A Hero is seen as the most effective and accountable wounded veteran organization by our Heroes and their families, and the community.
Impact A Hero serves, appreciates, and empowers our wounded heroes to continue to lead impactful lives.
Emotionally our wounded heroes need to know that every American appreciates the sacrifices our wounded heroes have made – it’s our turn to fight for them. Financially our wounded heroes deserve every American’s support to help pay for everyday living expenses, not to mention their new special needs such as retrofitting a house for a wheelchair. Our programs include helping our heroes through: Impact A Hero Day at Sporting and Entertainment Venues, Impact A Hero Emergency Financial Aid and Impact A Hero Mentoring as well as our Annual Impact a Hero Weekend.
“Our focus is to help our wounded heroes in a timely fashion with no bureaucracy. If they need financial help we get it to them fast. If they need an emotional lift by meeting one of their sports heroes then we fight through the roadblocks and get that accomplished.”
- Dick Lynch, founder
