HLAA is proud to be a coalition partner in the Hidden Heroes campaign, a nationwide initiative of the Elizabeth Dole Foundation to bring awareness to the 5.5 million military and veteran caregivers…spouses, parents, siblings and other loved ones who have transformed their lives and set aside their own careers to care for their wounded veteran. Hidden Heroes provides caregivers the help and recognition they deserve.
HiddenHeroes.org is dedicated to helping military caregivers find valuable resources and support and seeks to:
- Raise awareness of the contributions of military caregivers and the challenges
- Inspire individuals, businesses, communities, civic and government leaders to take action. (http://www.hiddenheroes.org/take-action/)
- Encourage military caregivers to register at HiddenHeroes.org to better connect them to our coalition partners’ helpful resources and community
HLAA is honored to be one of more than 160 national coalition partners.
