Reboot Combat Recovery Screen Shot

REBOOT Combat Recovery

REBOOT exists to address the often overlooked spiritual aspects of combat trauma. Our programs speak to issues of identity, false guilt, forgiveness and building an environment of healing by connecting the hurting with the Healer. For services outside of our lane of expertise, we partner with many government and non-profit based providers to complete this triangle of care. On a regular basis we refer our members to local counseling or therapy resources and partner with them to deliver meaningful outcomes.

Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund

Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund

An effort dedicated to honoring and supporting the heroes who serve in defense of our country and their families: America's men and women in uniform know that at any time they may be called upon to put themselves in harm's way to protect our nation and its values. The years since the cowardly attacks of September 11, 2001 have seen our nation engaged in two wars. The thousands of deaths and countless injuries incurred by our military have clearly driven home the meaning of sacrifice.

The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund exists to help those who have made these sacrifices. We have made grants to the families of those who have been lost. We have built an advanced rehabilitation center to care for those with amputation and severe burn injuries. And we have most recently constructed what will be our nation's foremost facility for treating servicemembers and veterans who suffer from traumatic brain injury. These efforts are part of the way that our nation can pay back the debt we owe to those who stand in our defense.

Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar donated to Homes for Our Troops has gone to directly to our program services for Veterans. HFOT builds these homes where the Veteran chooses to live, and continues its relationship with the Veterans after home delivery to assist them with rebuilding their lives.
