Support Organization Questionnaire

In fall of 2016, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation launched HiddenHeroes.org, an online destination for military and veteran caregivers -- the spouses, parents, and loved-ones caring for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans at home. A key feature of this website is a resource directory of carefully vetted support services for military caregivers. Through this directory, our goal is to connect caregivers to organizations and direct service providers that can best support their unique needs. 

Does your organization provide resources or support services to military and veteran caregivers? If yes, submit an application to be listed as a resource on the Elizabeth Dole Foundation's Hidden Heroes Resource Directory.

Upon completing the questionnaire below, please send a high resolution JPEG or PNG of your organization's logo to Molly@hiddenheroes.org.

If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Dole Foundation Programs Coordinator, Molly Ramsey at Molly@hiddenheroes.org. Thank you!
