NEVER FORGET FOUNDATION

 

 

The Never Forget Foundation mission is to give returning wounded warriors a variety of supportive programs to help these courageous men and women begin the healing process, knowing they are not forgotten. The foundation recognizes the deep bond between firefighters and wounded warriors, and believes their interaction is beneficial for all. Co-founded by a NYC firefighter and a registered nurse, the Never Forget Foundation is dedicated to providing wounded warriors and their families with much deserved "Rest and Relaxation" (R&R) and assistance in connection with other resources.

 

The Never Forget Foundation's primary initiative is to provide wounded warriors, and their families, exclusive "R&R" trips (transportation, hotel, food, activities) to New York City. For wounded warriors who cannot travel, we will bring "R&R" to them. Eventually, the program will expand nationwide and possibly worldwide.

 

The Never Forget Foundation's expanded mission is to provide further services through ongoing programs that bring together New York City's bravest and soldiers for mutual comfort and support. In addition to "R & R," the foundation intends to establish several long term programs which include:

 

Volunteer Service Board: Soldiers are coming home wounded in both body and spirit. The most difficult time for many often comes after the reporters leave, the therapy is done, and they are home. The foundation will establish a volunteer service board to provide a range of services to those in need. For instance, a wounded warrior needing a wheelchair ramp can contact us, and volunteers will respond. The foundation will reach out to firehouses across the country for volunteer connections, and is already building an extensive network of people who are ready, willing, and able to help.

 

For the wounded in sprit, the Never Forget Foundation can help foster strength, resiliency, and hope through educational programs. The foundation has access to experts in stress management, post traumatic stress disorder, family issues, and more, offering programs created for the special needs of first responders, the military, and their families.

 

In the future, the foundation hopes to establish a summer camp for wounded warriors, firefighters, and their families, to relax and heal. In addition to fishing, boating, and swimming, the camp would provide activities and classes such as arts and crafts and computer skills training.
