2019 was our biggest year to date. With over 200 anglers and the support of our generous donors and sponsors, we were able to raise over $90,000 for our charities!
For our 2019 tournament, two organizations that TACC chose to benefit were Mission United and PTSD Foundation of America - Camp Hope.2019 Newsletter
Veterans returning home from service often find the transition from a structured military regimen to a less structured civilian life extremely difficult. They struggle to find employment, navigate the hiring process, and re-engage in careers that give them a sense of purpose. Too many veterans returning to civilian life struggle to meet their most basic needs, like housing and health care. With MISSION UNITED, all it takes is one call for veterans, active duty military members, and their families to be connected with a dedicated case coordinator who will guide them through the process from beginning to end and find the resources to meet their unique needs.
Camp Hope provides interim housing for Wounded Warriors, veterans and their families suffering from combat related PTSD in a caring and positive environment. In addition to temporary housing, Camp Hope offers a 90+ day PTSD recovery program. Staff also assists veterans with a myriad of issues including job placement, coordination with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs and reputable veteran service organizations to assist with claims and benefits, transportation to appointments and peer support groups integration. The Camp Hope community embraces our troops, veterans and their families as they seek the rewarding and fulfilling lives they so richly deserve.
