Families of the Fallen Intensive Clinical Program Support
Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort, care, and resources to families and loved ones who have lost a military service member. Many who are suffering from grief struggle with providing the day-to-day essentials for their families. They are often single-income or single-parent households, and many are also facing either a reduction or overall loss of income in the wake of COVID-19. This increase in financial hardship, coupled with the transition to “social distancing” and self-quarantine has exacerbated existing anxiety and depression among survivors. The TAPS Peer Professionals are engaging with survivors 24/7, while the TAPS Casework Assistance Team addresses unprecedented requests for guidance and assistance with emergency financial support. This BWF grant will address the immediate emotional and financial needs of military survivors.
