Founded by a Marine Veteran and his spouse, since 2014, Backpacks For Life has been serving our veterans in two ways: by regularly distributing backpacks filled with supplies and resources to homeless veterans, and providing coaching and mentorship to veterans seeking resources, care, and assistance in navigating government programs. To date, Backpacks For Life has distributed over 7,600 backpacks to Veterans in 21 states.

We are compelled by our mission to be the community that drives growth for vet owned businesses. To this end, our moonshot goal we march toward is to build partnerships and leverage our community to drive over 1 billion dollars in value – per year – to the millions of veteran owned businesses in America. With every dollar we save you, with every new client we find you, and with each obstacle we remove for you and your companies, we know we are closer to accomplishing our mission and making our country stronger, wealthier, and better – together.
