Did you know that serving in the military is not a guarantee of lifelong medical coverage once you have been honorably discharged?

In fact with few exceptions, unless you retire after 20 years of service, are wounded in action, or suffer the effects of PTSD, you return to civilian life facing the same challenges as everyone else, including providing healthcare coverage for your family.

The unfortunate truth is more than 1.4 million veterans are living below the poverty level and another 1.4 million are just above it. That means each day more than 2.8 million of our country’s proudest and bravest struggle to make ends meet.

At Bridges For Heroes we administer grants that help lower income veterans and their families meet the ever increasing costs associated with healthcare coverage. We lessen the financial burden of healthcare by providing grants for medical expenses such as insurance premiums, co-pays and deductibles.
