Home Base

Sights and sounds from the 2022 ‘Helping Veterans Heal’ Televent

On Thursday, November 10, 2022, from 6:00am-8:00pm ET, Home Base once again partnered with WCVB Channel 5 Boston on the “Helping Veterans Heal” Televent. The funds raised during the 14-hour Televent directly support Home Base and its mission to help heal the invisible wounds of war for Veterans of all eras, Service Members, Military Families and Families of the Fallen.

Thank you to all of our supporters who made a generous donation to our program during the Televent! In total, $207,283 was raised to ensure that Veterans, Service Members and their Families can receive world-class care they need — all at no cost to the patient or their loved ones.
