No Hero Left Behind
Team Foster is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to honor the legacy of Captain Erick Foster by aiding wounded veterans. Our mantra: No Hero Left Behind. In 2017, Team Foster is sponsoring service dogs to partner with tri-state area veterans suffering from combat-related disabilities including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). We ensure these dogs are obtained, cared for and provided a specialized training team – all at no cost to our veterans.
Team Foster was founded in 2014 to honor a friend and hero killed in action. Erick was inspiration to many – he pushed himself and motivated everyone around to him to be better people… to go a little farther, to give a little more. And that’s exactly what Team Foster seeks to do. We want to give back to those service men and women who have sacrificed so much. We want to carry on Erick’s legacy by making sure that there is No Hero Left Behind.
While service dogs are vital tools to rehabilitate injured service men and women, they are also expensive and resource intensive. Just one service dog can take two years and upwards of $20,000 to properly prepare to partner with an injured veteran. Meanwhile, there is no assistance from the military or the government. By joining Team Foster, you can help fill that gap. You can make a difference in an injured veteran’s life.
