“Poor is the nation that has no heroes, but sadder still is the nation that having heroes, fails to remember and honor them.”

We've Raised Over $41,000 to Help Veterans Across Long Island
Your tax-deductible donation to the Bravo Foxtrot will make a meaningful difference in the Long Island military/veteran community. Approximately 80% of every dollar goes directly to programs that ensure our heroes and their families thrive today and tomorrow. The Bravo Foxtrot Board Members and Volunteers do not take salaries.
We have a comprehensive, proven process for selecting impactful programs that meet the immediate needs of the veteran population, while also addressing deeper-rooted barriers to their long-term stability. We fund the programs that are changing and saving lives and work tirelessly to ensure those programs are effective.
Bravo Foxtrot also accepts physical donations 7 days a week. Please schedule in advance by calling.
HOW YOUR DONATIONS ARE UTILIZED
Long Island Veteran FAQs
Do you have questions about Bravo Foxtrot and the help that is needed for our veterans?
What services does Bravo Foxtrot provide veterans?
The assistance we provide includes essentials such as food, clothing, hygiene products, talk groups, virtual meetings, and advocacy. In addition, Bravo Foxtrot is sponsored by Fusco Branstein and Rada law firm in order to provide the deserved legal aid for these veterans and to fulfill the “financial stability” aspect of their mental health/social status recovery.
How are the donations used?
Bravo Foxtrot United Veterans Inc. was formed for the purpose of establishing a residential program(s) that will provide temporary stable housing and holistic therapy (meditation, self-awareness, mind/body/spirit cohesion, etc.) to veterans in order to facilitate their successful reintegration back into their families and communities.
Bravo Foxtrot is approved by the OTDA (Office of Temporary Disability and Assistance) to house 20 or more veterans (known as an adult shelter). Our goal is to implement this in the form of temporary and stable housing in a rural or semi-rural area. Healing modalities such as meditation in motion (by working with plants and the land), working with animals, meditation, and other holistic means will be heavily promoted as well as veering off traditional Western medication as a sole treatment plan.
The donations received go to fulfilling this mission.
