Be Part of a Life-Changing Experience
Our wounded Heroes and their families are hosted to a sorely needed, all-inclusive, Nantucket dream-come-true vacation retreat. The HFH producing team, volunteers, and supporters come to know true heroism first hand.
Each Holiday Experience offers what is so hard to express in words: our deepest and most heartfelt gratitude. Our heroes deserve the best. In the end it boils down to this: we see the care and the stress that has by injury been etched so deeply into a hero's countenance evaporate, for a while, and be replaced by relaxation, restitution, and peace.
As home to world-renowned artists, authors, sports figures, philanthropists, politicians, and entrepreneurs, Nantucket has a cultural heritage that is second to none. Perhaps it is its temperate, idyllic harbor town, or its picturesque bay, or its historical wealth that makes it such a beloved destination. Or perhaps Nantucket was best described by the Native Americans who first called it home: 'canopache,' the 'place of peace.
SUPPORTING THE FAMILY
Behind every hero, there is a family who has loved, supported, and sacrificed. At Holidays for Heroes we strive to honor our veterans and their families as a unit. In 2017, we introduced our Women In War program to the Nantucket community. Women In War recognizes caregivers, Gold Star Moms, female veterans, wives who have become nurses to the men they love, and mothers who help sons recover from physical and mental wounds. In doing so, we uncover a perspective of war that is often overlooked and needs to be acknowledged. Read about Women In War.
