Help Heal Veterans' (Heal Vets) primary mission is to enrich the lives of veterans and military personnel. Healing arts and crafts provide a therapeutic experience for all veterans including those who are hospitalized, in shelters, in convalescent homes and those undergoing therapy for a wide range of physical and mental challenges. The kits, provided free of charge to the veteran, often become a part of the patient's treatment plan, giving them a creative outlet along with tangible therapeutic and rehabilitation benefits. The kits improve fine motor skills, cognitive functioning, memory improvement, anger issues and dexterity.

We work to involve the public in meeting this mission through a broad education outreach program, Heal Vets' therapeutic programs and provide a meaningful way for individuals, corporations or other nonprofit organizations to help wounded or disabled veterans, military patients and their families rebuild their lives.
