We are a 501(c)(3) with the primary goals of being self-sufficient through the establishment of businesses that employ veterans, serving the essential survival needs of homeless veterans and others in peril, and offering long-term sustainability training and transitional support elements to help secure stable living arrangements for our clients. Our efforts are specifically aimed at reducing the alarming suicide rate for veterans.
GloryFest '23 will take place Sunday 4/23/23 at the legendary Municipal Memorial Auditorium! We are very pleased to partner with ASM Global and The Shreveport Convention Center for our second benefit concert.
Our foundation created an anthology entitled These Fought in Any Case that is a collection of poems and short stories written by veterans. The book is available on Amazon and we hope that you will purchase a copy. We've published three other journals and there will be more on the way!
The first major event for our foundation was held on Saturday 4/23/22 at The Lot in Shreveport (LA). GloryFest '22 was a rousing success and we are extremely appreciative for the performers, sponsors, partners, volunteers, and concertgoers who committed themselves to this benefit concert!
Also, Theo Kamperides will be running The Boston Marathon (4/17/23) on behalf of our foundation! Theo will be our third runner in a row doing the 26.2 miles from the starting line in Hopkinton to the finish line on Boylston Street!

Finally, we deleted our Facebook page. We're done. The negativity in that realm far outweighed the benefits for our missions and initiatives.
On Monday 4/18/22, Leah Goldstein completed The Boston Marathon on behalf of our foundation! Watch the video below to witness the surprise she got at the halfway point in Wellesley when Jason Sparks joined her to be supportive for the final 13.1 miles.
