Who We Are
Since our founding in 2009, Home Base, a partnership of the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital, has been breaking new ground, leading regional and national efforts with a multi-disciplinary team of experts working together to help Service Members, Veterans and their Families heal from the Invisible Wounds: traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress (PTS), and related conditions. Today, Home Base is the only private sector clinic in New England, and the largest private sector clinic in America with the sole focus of helping at-risk Veterans and Military Families regain the lives they once had. By caring for Veterans in a family-based clinic, and by working in cooperation with the Veterans Administration (VA) and the Department of Defense (DoD), Home Base serves as a replicable model to promote the health and well-being of Veterans nationwide. Mass General serves as the medical leader for Home Base and is the top-ranked hospital nationwide as reported by U.S. News & World Report 2014-2015.
Home Base services are specifically designed to overcome common barriers to care for returning Veterans. We provide care to all Veterans and Families, regardless of ability to pay or discharge status, and utilize a “three generation” model of care that extends to parents, children, and extended family members who are effectively integrated into care. Our integrated team of child and adult psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists, nurses and nurse practitioners, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists, licensed clinical social workers, addictions specialists, and peer-to-peer outreach coordinators – all of whom are Veterans and/or Family Members of the Post-9/11 wars – work together to ensure that Veterans and their Families receive or are connected to appropriate and uniquely-tailored care.
Since its inception, Home Base has provided care and support to more than 21,000 Veterans and family members and trained more than 73,000 clinicians, educators, first responders and community members – all at no cost – ensuring a brighter future for the 21st century warrior and military family.
