Our Mission and Achievements

We Can Be Heroes Foundation Mission and Community Outreach:

We publicized nominations from across USA for courageous heroes and unsung heroes, including first responders, community volunteers, veterans and youth. In addition, we host tributes to heroes, educational forums to promote American values ,and help veterans and those in need.  We also offer the online Wall of Heroes for the public to honor their heroes, the Heroes in Business Directory and the Speakers Directory for those seeking event speakers.

Responding to Emerging Community Needs

  • In 2020, the We Can Be Heroes Foundation led the community effort to provide the first Recreation Room for homeless veterans at local Mission.  We secured painter, furniture, indoor game tables, & military wall hangings.
  • 2020-Present. Homeless veterans seeking help in Florida increased significantly with their loss of jobs and homes due to COVID.  We led community-wide drives, and delivered loads of nonperishable food, supplies, masks, sanitation wipes, gloves, clothes, and blankets.  Drives are continuing.
