Our mission is to echo Abraham Lincoln’s promise "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan" by serving our servicemen and women and providing a stable platform together with communities.
Our goal is building and bridging relationships between community members, social media, local veteran’s clubs, local businesses and non-profit organizations. Thus, communities throughout the U.S. can be empowered and positioned to better sustain programmatic efforts in helping our soldiers maintain long happy fruitful lives.
We are a group of passionate individuals committed to making a positive change in the lives of our veterans and active duty service members by addressing reintegration issues within their local communities.
Too many individuals who have served in the military suffer from the stresses of coming home to communities while feeling alienated and misunderstood. Not having a support system or mentor may have complex social consequences.
Our heroes may not have the resources or knowledge for finding employment, housing, or other supports needed for surviving and thriving.
Through Lincoln Echo, program participants engage and become empowered socially through events and outings that bring them resources to positively impact their emotional well-being and build contacts. This, in turn, can increase their quality of life through their own community. Lincoln Echo serves as a platform for communities to assist in reaching out to service men and women with opportunities to participate in social gatherings and build connections. The role of Lincoln Echo is to be a catalyst for communities around the United States to take action and engage veterans and active duty military in group activities that foster healthy relationships and provide a much-needed support system.
Are we a Non-Profit organization?
The resources that support Lincoln Echo now are through the kindness of the community for the participants they continue to serve directly and through private expenditures.
Lincoln Echo will be applying for 501(c)(3) as a not for profit organization as we grow through the stages of our organization’s beginnings.
