Our Impact

Our Mission

Heroes in Transition (HIT) provides assistance for veterans, service members and their families not readily available from government agencies or other providers. This assistance strengthens relationships, builds community, empowers individuals and provides a pathway to healing for those we serve. HIT improves quality of life, communication, and resiliency skills for all, through responsible and professional leadership and in partnership with others.

The impact that Heroes in Transition has on the veteran community is substantial. The majority of individuals we serve are from Cape Cod and the Islands though we do assist individuals from off-Cape, including Southeastern Massachusetts, Central Massachusetts, Greater Boston, and Rhode Island. Our programs are free and open to all individuals currently serving, veterans, and their immediate family members.

  • We held two Couples Retreats, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. We had 15 couples attend in the spring and 15 more couples attend the fall retreat. The retreats are held over the course of two days with couples learning practical skills to improve their communication, enhance their intimacy, and strengthen their relationships.
