Our nation's first responders put their lives on the line every day in order to protect and serve their families, communities and country. They are routinely subjected to some very, very traumatic situations almost on a day to day basis. The stress of their jobs does not go away when they go home and far too often, these same heroes are struggling mentally to find purpose as a result of the jobs they love and the situations they are sent to improve.
Hook-A-Hero is a 100% non-profit 501(c)(3) ran solely by volunteer first responders and civilians. Hook’s purpose is to provide a variety of mental health services, financial support and a peer support network to these American Heroes, and their families, who serve and protect.
In addition to providing opportunities for traditional mental health support services, Hook facilitates various outdoor activities to promote engaging opportunities for these Heros. Dealing with the demands and stress of a first responder profession can often feel like an isolating task and too often our Heros feel they must face the challenge alone.
With Hook’s assistance, these Heros can find a sense of belonging in the journey toward recovery and the rediscovery of the purpose and passion in their lives.
