AZ Heroes to Hometowns is designed to welcome home our wounded Service Members who, because of injuries sustained, can no longer serve in the military. AZ Heroes to Hometowns is here to assist our injured troops/veterans in the transition back to the their community.
The American public’s strong support for our troops is especially evident in their willingness to help Service members who are severely injured in the war, and their ever-supportive families, as they transition from the hospital environment and return to civilian life. Heroes to Hometowns is a program that focuses on reintegration back home, with networks established at the national and state levels to better identify the extraordinary needs of returning families before they return home and to work with local communities to coordinate government and non-government resources necessary for long term success. AZ Heroes to Hometowns inspires community pride and establishes a support network for Service Members and their families so they can live productive lives.
The Arizona Heroes to Hometowns Project has a fine history in assisting those who need us.
Support has included:
- help with paying the bills
- finding suitable homes and adapting as needed
- transportation to medical appointments
- finding jobs and providing educational assistance
- arranging welcome home celebrations
- help working through bureaucracy and obtaining government benefits

We thank our community, and community leaders, for their commitment to make a difference in the lives of our Heroes.
