Helping Veterans Find Their Voice and Tell Their Story

Every year, hundreds of thousands of veterans transition from service into civilian life. It’s a challenging time that often results in loss of identity and changes so significant it seems like they are changing planets.

For them to live the life of prosperity they deserve, they must rediscover their voices and tell their stories.

That is our mission at The Heroes Journey.  

Better Ground: Veteran Performing Arts Center

The Heroes Journey is proud to partner with Stageworks in Tampa, FL this summer to open the Bay Area’s first performing arts center that caters to the unique needs and impact of veteran storytelling and performance.

Storytelling is how we move from where we were to where we are now and where we’re going. Storytelling is how we heal, how we validate, how we inform, how we reconnect. We need to tell the story of the sacrifice of our veterans. We also need to tell the story of the relationships and love that our veterans have with the Afghan people, particularly as they come here to become our newest citizens. Together, we can heal the wounds that have been affected on our combat veterans, our military families, and our Afghan allies as we come home from the longest war in history.

It’s time for storytelling. It’s time to heal. 

We Need Your Help!

With the recent withdrawal of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, we diverted our resources to fundraising for other nonprofits that were helping evacuate our Afghan partners and U.S citizens trapped in Afghanistan, as well as responding to our veterans who were experiencing immense trauma during this event and feeling like their service was meaningless. As a result, we need your support to continue to bring healing to our veterans through sharing their stories. Your donation will support programs that help veterans find their voice and tell their story. Most importantly, you will know that you were part of something special and that you stepped up when no one else would.
