“I’m Not A Hero, The Heroes Are The Ones That Never Came Back Home.”
~ John P. Miller, WW II Two Purple Hearts Recipient
The Honoring Our Fallen Heroes program was founded to honor the servicemen and women who sacrificed their lives in service to our country, and to support their surviving family members. This program was and continues to be needed in this area. Mountains To Miracles strives to help surviving family members when public services are strained or lacking.
The program originated due to ongoing requests from veterans’ widows/widowers who were without resources and needed assistance navigating legal support services, veteran services, and counseling. During the grieving process of losing a family member, seeking assistance can be very difficult. Mountains To Miracles recognized that in times of mourning extra support and guidance is necessary.
The needs are greater than the current available resources. While the services required vary with each family, Mountains To Miracles has worked to address individual families’ immediate needs, including but not limited to:
-Connecting families to various Federal and local support agencies
-Funding for burial expenditures
-Providing needed expenditures that exceed the available support from the Veterans Administration
-Connecting survivors to support services and counseling, including enabling children to receive emotional support and counseling during the grieving process
-Providing necessary transportation for medical appointments
-Helping families meet their unique needs
-Fundraising to provide Christmas presents for children
Your support of Mountains To Miracles funds our ability to support family members of our fallen heroes who did not make it back home.
