Massachusetts Fallen Heroes is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring those who have given their lives in service since September 11th, 2001. Our mission is to, Honor our Fallen, Support our Gold Star Families (immediate family members of our fallen) and Empower our Veterans. The Massachusetts Iraq & Afghanistan Fallen Heroes Memorial honors the memory of our fallen by preserving their name in a public tribute and acknowledging their sacrifice. The first-of-its-kind in the nation, the Memorial stands tall at 50ft and is located in the Seaport Common.
The Memorial was just the beginning of our work.
In 2016, MFH created & launched the first ever Patriot Week. Patriot Week is a 10 Day series of events for all citizens to participate with. Our goal was to find creative ways to educate and inspire our youth & communities across the state, on honor, patriotism, sacrifice and freedom - the true meaning of Memorial Day. Particularly, we are focused on reaching students and teachers through our Educational Program. Proven to be successful with 14 schools participating in 2016 to 26 schools in 2017. With your support, MFH can continue to build new programs and services for our Veterans & Gold Star family community. We have successfully hosted many Gold Star Family excursions for our sub family groups creating an environment for our families that help them build connections with eachother and share thier grief and unique loss.
We held community-building events that have had a lasting and positive impact, bringing our Gold Star Families and Veterans together.
