Our programs and services provide support and direct financial assistance to bereaved family members of our local fallen heroes in a variety of ways. Family members looking to access these programs can find more information at the links below, or can call the office at 888.909.HERO (4376).
Bereaved Military Family Assistance. Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund can offer direct financial assistance to families needing help with funeral costs not covered by the military, with basic needs expenses, and with family enrichment programs. These grants are administered by a licensed social worker, who can also provide advocacy, referrals and limited case management services. Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund also offers peer-to-peer support through workshops, private family events and other opportunities for social connections.
Community Building Events. Massachusetts Military Heroes Fund is proud to offer several large community building events designed to support military families, including our Memorial Day Flag Garden and 9/11 Service Project to Support Our Troops and Families. Volunteers are welcomed.
