Our Mission

Home Base’s mission is to heal the invisible wounds for Post-9/11  Veterans, Service Members and their Families through world-class  clinical care, wellness, education and research.

 

VALUE OF HOME BASE

We serve both Veterans and Families. We recognize that when one family member serves, the entire family serves. The conflicts of the past ten years and repeated deployments have affected Military Veterans and Families alike. Home Base offers clinical and counseling services in individual or group settings to Veterans and their spouses, parents, children, siblings, grandparents, significant others and other loved ones in their lives throughout the deployment cycle.

Discharge status does not affect access to care. Home Base serves all Veterans regardless of their time of service or discharge status, and from all branches of service including the National Guard and Reserve. Though we focus our outreach on Veterans who served in Iraq or Afghanistan, no Veteran is turned away.

Payment is not a barrier. Home Base accepts TriCare and other private and public insurance including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim, Tufts Health Plan, and MassHealth. By law we are required to bill health insurance, but if a Veteran or Family member has no insurance or a gap in insurance coverage, they will never receive a bill from Home Base.

We collaborate with the VA and other organizations. Home Base routinely works with the US Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense to make certain that Veterans and Families receive the care they need in a timely manner, and in the correct and most convenient setting. We also work with and learn from long-standing Veteran-serving organizations in Massachusetts including the Massachusetts Department of Veterans Services and its SAVE Team, the Massachusetts National Guard, and student Veteran organizations at colleges and universities.
