Building Hidden Heroes Cities

During the summer of 2016, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation worked with the U.S. Conference of Mayors to pass an important Resolution to encourage cities to increase resources for military and veteran caregivers.

To inspire participation, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation established the Hidden Heroes Cities Program, a growing network of cities and counties to better serve our caregivers and share best practices.
