The Support Our Troops Program was established to meet the unique needs and special challenges faced by members of the Canadian Armed Forces community as a result of military service. It provides a platform to allow a range of supporters to show their care, compassion and support to serving members, veterans and their families.
Why Support Our Troops?
Frequent deployments, separations, and relocations are hallmarks of military life, and can greatly affect military families.
While many families manage to cope with and overcome these difficulties alone, others need additional support through special morale and wellness programs, services, and activities.
You can make a difference and help meet the needs of our soldiers and their loved ones.
The men and women who serve our country face unique challenges – so do their families. Together we can ensure that these extraordinary men and women and the military families who make sacrifices and carry the weight while their loved ones are away receive the morale and wellness support they need. Your involvement can make a real difference in the lives of those who serve our country with honour and pride, and who have given so much.
There are several components to the Support Our Troops Program providing many different resources for physical, phycological, and financial assistance; these resources include the Solider On Fund and Boomer's Legacy. There are also a range of Special Needs Grants offered by the program, to assist with assessments and reassessments, as well as to offset some of the extraordinary costs associated with things like assistive devices, respite care, therapy, and medical travel.
In addition to the donations to the Support Our Troops Program, they rely on an engaged and dedicated support network of Canadians who attend, or even host, their own Support Our Troops events in their local communities. These events help raise funds, and spread the word about the important work being done by Support Our Troops to improve the lives of Canadian Armed Forces soldiers, veterans, and their families. Health & Charity is honoured to host the Inaugural Support Our Troops Gala in Ottawa. Please contact us anytime for more information, or for tickets - we look forward to seeing you there!
