We support our Heroes, now and in the future.
The Joshua Chamberlain Society adopts wounded veterans and the families of deceased veterans and commits to providing support for the long term.
Their sacrifice is permanent — so is our support.
When American service members are severely wounded in combat, their lives are changed forever. And when our service members make the ultimate sacrifice, their families need support and security. With the help of generous donors and fundraising events, we help severely wounded veterans live full, vibrant lives despite their injuries, and we make sure the families of the fallen are provided with support and security for the future.
Our chapters in St. Louis, Nashville, and Houston “adopt” severely wounded combat veterans and the families of deceased veterans and commit to offering support for the long-term through monetary donations, home renovations, tuition assistance, and more.
We’re always looking for ways to help improve the quality of life for these heroic Americans and their families. Meet our Heroes here, and join our mission to support wounded veterans and the families of the fallen, now and in the future.
The Joshua Chamberlain Society (“JCS”) is a grass roots, 501(c)(3) federally tax exempt charity that was formed with the mission of providing long term support to veterans from local areas that have sustained permanent combat injuries fighting the long war on terror for our nation. It also provides long term support to the children of local veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice in our service. Founded in St. Louis Missouri it has now expanded into additional chapters serving the Nashville Tennessee and Houston Texas areas. Each chapter runs independently so donors know their contributions stay with their local JCS Heroes.
Your Donations Change Lives
We couldn’t do the important work of supporting our JCS Heroes without the generous donations of our supporters. Your generosity allows us to profoundly impact the lives of 21 heroic men and women, as well as the children of JCS Heroes killed in action. Learn more about how we support our Heroes here.
Whether you’re unable to make a monetary donation or simply want to be on the front lines of serving our veterans, we welcome volunteers! The donation of your time and talent helps make a difference in the lives of our Heroes. Contact us to learn how you can help.
