OUR TEAM

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”   - Lillie Leonardi

Hook-A-Hero is a 100% non-profit 501(c)(3) ran solely by volunteer first responders and civilians.  Hook’s purpose is to provide a variety of mental health services, financial support and a peer support network to these American Heroes, and their families, who serve and protect.


Additionally, Hook facilitates various outdoor activities and adventures to promote engaging opportunities for these men and women to rediscover the joy in their lives, provide a support network and facilitate the bond of friendships which never allow our Heroes to be alone in mind, body and spirit.  We shine a light on their service and extend a heartfelt "thank you" for what they willingly sacrifice each and every day to ensure our safety and freedom!


It is our mission to show these true American Heroes that their service has not been forgotten and they are not alone.
