At American Hometown Veteran Assist, wellbeing is at the forefront of what we’re working towards. Our program is designed to help veterans & first responders financially when they need it most. When veterans feel as though they have lost their support, we step in to help them with the necessary things they need to get them to the next stage of self-sufficiency. We support first responders as well and have committed to ensuring scholarships for those in school.  Learn more about the positive impacts we are making.

About Us

In 2007, parents of Quadriplegic Veteran Peter Herrick, Clint Herrick and Chuck Wilder (Father-in-Law) recognized that there were many unmet needs of veterans outside the mission of the VA and other veteran service organizations. As a result, American Hometown Veteran Assist was created.

Here at American Hometown Veteran Assist, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. Our decision making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high quality data evaluation. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.  With your help we can.  Contacts us now.

Our Mission & Needs

To make a difference in the lives of American Veterans & First Responders by assisting them with urgent needs, scholarships, and finding resolutions to overcome barriers and challenges while working to empower them towards a better quality of life.
