Arizona Heroes to Hometowns
When a soldier is injured so severely that they need to return home, Arizona Heroes to Hometowns steps in with the emotional, physical, and financial support necessary for them to re-acclimate to civilian life. Members of the organization help wounded military personnel in a variety of ways, such as assisting them with bill payments, driving them to doctor’s appointments, arranging job interviews, and gathering much-needed community support.
