Uniting Communities to Change Our World One Causes at a Time
Cops 4 Causes "Heroes Helping Heroes" Program:Since the events of 9/11, over a million U.S. service members have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in the war against terrorism. Currently the U.S. has nearly 140,000 troops still deployed. The DOD estimates that 360,000 returning service members suffer from Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and over 31,000 have sustained other serious injuries. In addition to these injuries many will suffer with anger management, depression, and substance abuse issues.
Currently the City of Los Angeles has the largest homeless veteran population in the United States. Over the course of the year, in the United Stated States, an estimated 144,842 veterans spent at least 1 night homeless, living in emergency shelters or transitional housing units (HUD, 2010). Cops 4 Causes is committed to ensuring services for our fighting men and women will be available when they return.
