Who We Help
The Chris Souza Foundation is thankful for all service men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting our freedom. We support and help all branches of the armed forces including the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard. Located in Richmond, Virginia, we seek to help Veterans and their families not only locally but also on a national level.
The Foundation Mission
The Chris Souza Foundation is a 501C non profit Honoring the life of SFC Chris Souza and all of our other Brothers and Sisters in arms we have lost while in combat or from complications and invisible wounds brought home from an act of war.
Our mission is to help, assist, honor, encourage, support and empower our U.S.Veterans and Active Duty Service Members of all branches of the Armed Forces as well as their Families in their time of need and crisis with such services as, home improvement, wheelchair ramps, service dogs, temporary housing, counseling, financial grants for emergency situations and many of the other needs they may have not have the ability to obtain services for on their own, helping to improve their quality of life.
Including in our mission is our very strong passionate commitment to helping to put an end to the heartbreaking epidemic of the on average 22 Veterans we loose every single day to Veterans suicide stemming from the suffering of PTSD and the invisible wounds that our Military Men and Women come home from war with after serving and fighting for our freedom, by raising awareness, education, providing resources and services.
