The 2015 Southwest National Service Conference is proud to support Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). TAPS offers compassionate care to all those grieving the death of a loved one serving in our Armed Forces. Since 1994, TAPS has provided comfort and hope 24 hours a day, seven days a week through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.
Through Hotels for Hope's RoomFunding™ platform, every room night booked through the contracted room block generates a $2 donation to the TAPS project. This project will fund the training of 200 Good Grief Camp volunteers to be one-on-one mentors with children that attend the Good Grief Camp.
To learn more about this project and how you can support TAPS, visit: bit.ly/TAPSRoomFunding.
