Our Mission

Hope For The Brave has one simple focus - build bridges that link military service members to the right people, the right training and the right support to have successful careers once they transition out of the military.

Our Vision

We want to be the place veterans turn to for support and guidance as they navigate civilian life after serving our country.

Our Story

We started Hope For The Brave because we have a collective passion for leadership, mentoring others and giving back. With Kevin being a veteran of the U.S. Army, focusing our passion on a specific group of individuals, veterans, made perfect sense to us.  Once we identified that there were gaps in the process of transitioning from military to civilian life, we knew that we could help.

Since starting our organization, we've been overwhelmed by the support of our friends, family and business connections who want to help support our veterans and Hope For The Brave's mission. We are so excited to offer our programs to all veterans in need of career and business guidance.
