Honor Support Empower

HONOR our Fallen Heroes SUPPORT our Gold Star Families EMPOWER our Veterans Mass Fallen Heroes provides exclusive programs and services for our Gold Star family and Veteran community. We honor our fallen with the first of its kind public memorial for all those who lost their lives post 9/11/2001. We support the families members that have been left behind by creating events and excursions specific for their needs and also to foster their relationships in a comfortable environment, where they can share this unique bond with each other. We Empower our returning and active duty military servicemen & servicewomen with need based services ranging from career placement, fighting a medical claim, housing issue and provide legal assistance to lift this financial burden. Our Veterans Edge initiative is focused on securing and protecting the benefits from the legislative side that all of our military personnel should receive without discrimination.

Mass Fallen Heroes was established in 2010 by Boston firefighters, local combat Veterans, Gold Star Families, Police Officers, and our community. Mass Fallen Heroes is comprised of a group of Veterans and Gold Star family members who have experienced the hardships of war firsthand and understand that its impact does not end upon a service member’s return home. Mass Fallen Heroes also understands the enduring impact on those families who did not have a loved one return home.

Mass Fallen Heroes has grown from a charity geared towards building a public memorial to honor our fallen heroes into an organization that is expanding everyday. Mass Fallen Heroes now has an initiative Massachusetts Veteran's Edge, which is staffed and managed by Veterans. The mission continues, together Mass Fallen Heroes and Mass Veterans Edge are able to provide support with career opportunities, medical claims, housing concerns, and work together to provide programs specific for these two unique groups. It was demonstarted to MFH early on that combining our Veterans and Gold Star Families was a natural and necessary means of support for each.  Massachusetts Fallen Heroes holds a series of events throughout the year, in 2016 alone 26 Specific Programs were executed along with 6 vehicle giveaways to our Veterans. Please visit our website to learn more about our Educational Program, Excursions and Events. 

 The Massachusetts Iraq and Afghanistan Fallen Heroes Memorial was unvieled and dedicated on May 27, 2016. This was accomplished in 6 short years from hardwork, determination, loyalty from our volunteers and private donations. We thank you. Now standing tall in the heart of the South Boston waterfront, at 75 Northern Avenue in Boston's Seaport Common is the five sided obliesk memorial, with 272 names etched in the glass panels beside it. To the right we have planted a grove of 5 trees representing each branch of service. This memorial grove is in rememberance of those lost to PTS and suicide. 

MFH is looking to continually increase recognition and support for our Gold Star family and Veteran community within the State of Massachusetts.  We are honored to be the officially designated nonprofit entity charged with fundraising and constructing the Memorial by the Commonwealth.
