Heroes Night Out is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that acknowledges the sacrifices not only of the wounded warrior, but the dedication of the family as well.

We break the daily drudge by providing the warrior and his family with a day or night away from the daily routine while recovering from their injuries.

Heroes Night Out provides an Appreciation Wallet. Each wallet contains six $50.00 gift cards to local restaurants or venues.  This provides our Heroes and their families some valuable and well deserved family time and opportunity to heal their hearts.

Most families and the wounded warrior are staying at a medical facility housing or close to the facility where they receive recovery care.  With the support from local communities, Heroes Night Out takes every opportunity to host BBQs or social activities on or near the military bases with medical facilities.

Peer support for the warriors, and peer support for the spouses of the wounded warriors meet at Heroes Night Out.  Peer support works, but it has to be comfortable, and it has to be real, and it has to be safe.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, Veterans and family members will find all kinds of help - so be sure to drop by, especially on Thursdays, when the coffee and donuts hit the spot!
