The Red Sox Foundation is the official team charity of the Boston Red Sox. The Foundation’s primary focus is in serving the health, education, recreation, and social service needs of children and families in need across New England. Lead by interim Executive Director Bekah Salwasser, the Foundation’s goal is to harness the passion fans have for the Red Sox and transform it into a vehicle for positive change in our community.
In 2009, the Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital created the Home Base Program with a shared goal of improving the lives of returning Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans and Families throughout New England who are affected by combat and deployment-related stress (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury.

Warrior Care Network is a groundbreaking collaboration between Wounded Warrior Project®(WWP) and its academic medical center partners, Emory Healthcare, Massachusetts General Hospital, Rush University Medical Center, and UCLA Health, to create a nationwide, comprehensive care network that will enhance access and provide clinical and family-centered treatment to veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and other related conditions. Warrior Care Network will offer specialized clinical services through either a regionalized outpatient program and/or an innovative intensive outpatient program. In cooperation with the Department of Veterans Affairs, this program will connect thousands of warriors with world-class care.
Home Base is generously supported by the Wounded Warrior Project. The mission of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. WWP’s purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs. WWP is a national, nonpartisan organization headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. To get involved and learn more, visit woundedwarriorproject.org.
Moving forward on the idea that no one program can do it alone, Home Base was chosen to be a member of the Bush Institute’s Warrior Wellness Alliance. The Alliance aims to help Veterans across the U.S. by connecting peer-to-peer Veteran networks with best in class health providers.
Home Base is generously supported in part by Welcome Back Veterans (WBV), an initiative of the McCormick Foundation and Major League Baseball. WBV was created to inspire Americans to reach out and help our returning Veterans and their Families. These heroes were there when we needed them-they served us all and kept us safe-it is our turn to be there for them. WBV is committed to providing PTSD treatment to our Veterans and their Families in a public/private partnership with the Veterans Administration, Department of Defense, Major League Baseball Charities, the McCormick Foundation, the Entertainment Industry Foundation and world renowned Centers of Excellence at University Hospitals throughout the country.
The SEAL Legacy Foundation is a 501(C)(3), nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support to families of wounded and fallen United States Navy SEALs, educational assistance for SEALs and their families, and other charitable causes benefiting the SEAL community. The Foundation was established in 2011 by SEALs to preserve their legacy of no one left behind. Home Base was chosen as a partner of the SEAL Legacy Foundation in 2017 and entrusted with the development of new mental health programs targeted to the SEAL community. For more information, please visit www.SEALLegacy.org.
Home Base works closely with the VA Boston Healthcare System to coordinate care for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans and Families. The VA Boston Healthcare System exists to serve the veteran through the delivery of timely quality care by staff who demonstrate outstanding customer service, the advancement of health care through research, and the education of tomorrow’s health care providers.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs National Center for PTSD is the center of excellence for research and education on the prevention, understanding, and treatment of PTSD. The Center has seven divisions across the country. Although the Center provides no direct clinical care, its purpose is to improve the well-being and understanding of American Veterans. The National Center for PTSD conducts cutting edge research and applies resultant findings to “Advance the Science and Promote Understanding of Traumatic Stress.” Home Base and the VA’s National Center for PTSD have collaborated to present a free, on-line series for community clinicians called From the War Zone to the Home Front: Supporting the Mental Health of Veterans and Families.
The mission of the Benson-Henry Institute (BHI) is to fully integrate mind body medicine into mainstream healthcare at the Massachusetts General Hospital, as well as throughout the country and the world, by means of rigorous, evidence-based research and clinical application of this work. BHI clinicians use techniques that are scientifically proven to strengthen the natural healing capacities of body and mind. BHI developed resilience programs for veterans and their families, or the Resilient Warrior and Resilient Family Programs, with Home Base as well as other mind-body programs (e.g., Mindful Movement). BHI has also assisted with developing a training program for instructors.
The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) offers compassionate care to all those grieving the loss of a military loved one. Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope 24/7 through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.
