WNY Heroes, Inc
The mission of WNYHeroes is to provide veterans, members of the armed services, and the widows and children of deceased veterans with access to essential services, financial assistance and resources that support their lives and sustain their dignity.
Founded in 2007 by U.S. Army veteran Chris M. Kreiger and community activist Dionne Kane, WNYHeroes is an IRS 501(c) (3) not-for-profit organization serving the needs of Western New York’s veterans and their families. Through direct experience, WNYHeroes has identified substantial gaps in post-combat care that must be addressed to enable veterans and their families to regain stability and health in their personal and professional lives.
Since its inception in 2007, WNY Heroes, Inc. has grown exponentially, becoming a critical lifesustaining vehicle for veterans and their families by providing immediate financial assistance to those in need. Now, more than ever, the need is constant and growing in alarming fashion with so many veterans returning home. We are certain that the recent news of delays in getting services through the VA, that these brave and heroic men & women face upon their return, will further impact the need for program services within our organization. Below are the programs WNY Heroes, Inc. provides. Last known statistics 172,000 veterans reside in the 8 counties of WNY.
