Why We Do What We Do…

“I just want to send a sincere thank you to WNY Heroes and the many people who help donate to wny veterans . Without the help of this organization my kids would not of had a Christmas this year , I found myself unexpectedly laid off and in a financial crisis right before the holiday season. Not only did WNY heroes provide gifts & a great meal for my kids for Christmas, they also stepped in with assistance financially for rent as well. It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am, I’m speechless, thank you so much. You truly made a difference in this veterans life. God Bless!” – Army Veteran

WNY Heroes Inc.

Since its inception in 2007, WNY Heroes, Inc. has grown exponentially, becoming a critical lifesustaining vehicle for veterans and their families by providing immediate financial assistance to those in need. Now, more than ever, the need is constant and growing in alarming fashion with so many veterans returning home. We are certain that the recent news of delays in getting services through the VA, that these brave and heroic men & women face upon their return, will further impact the need for program services within our organization. Below are the programs WNY Heroes, Inc. provides. On any given night, over 1700 homeless veterans are living on the streets, in parks, under bridges and behind dumpsters in WNY. Last known statistics 172,000 veterans reside in the 8 counties of WNY.
