Hero’s and Caregiver’s Networks

We are taking applications for our new Hero’s and Caregiver’s Networks. The “Hero’s and Caregiver’s Networks” is a companion program to the counseling scholarship program. The Networks will be an open-ended peer program with expert led sessions on topics determined by members of each network. Each class contains an experiential “fun” component.

Additionally, each network member will be paired with a trained peer for added support.

If you are interested please call Anna Tanzilla at atanzilla@camaraderiefoundation.org or (407) 841-0071

C.O.M.B.A.T. 

(Coalition of Military Bikers Against Trauma)

The C.O.M.B.A.T. initiative is a united “call to arms” expressing an immeasurable scale and worth of a veteran brotherhood and sisterhood belonging to a motorcycle association or club in the fight to eliminate the invisible wounds of war.

Thank you to Janette Arencibia for a Basic Membership
