It is estimated that there are over one million post 9/11 caregivers of military veterans, representing a growing—yet underserved—community within our nation’s military. Current programs in existence for caregivers typically focus on the soldier and only diffusely relate to the needs of the caregiver.
Heels on the Ground (HOTG) is an innovative new organization that will address this gap. HOTG’s mission is to improve the quality of life for caregivers of wounded soldiers. HOTG accomplishes its mission via support networks, local weekend workshops, personalized mental and physical wellness plans, educational webinars, and transformative weekend retreats. Caregivers face enormous pressures and challenges, yet there are few options offered to them for healing. HOTG provides ongoing, customized support for caregivers, guiding them through the healing process and empowering them to make lasting transformations to their health so that they can thrive.
