Our Mission and Achievements
We Can Be Heroes Foundation Mission and Community Outreach
Going strong since 2016
We share and publicize nominations for courageous heroes and unsung heroes from across America, including first responders, community volunteers, veterans, and youth. Offer the online Wall of Heroes photo gallery for public to honor their past and present heroes. Host tributes to heroes, and educational forums on America’s founding values, and help veterans and those in need. We offer the Heroes in Business Directory for consumers, and the Speakers Directory for event planners.
Sponsor the Atlantic Coast Young Marines, Veteran Groups, Filipino-American Clubs, the Asian American – Pacific Islanders.
