TAPS Background

The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) is the national organization providing compassionate care for the families of America’s fallen military heroes. TAPS provides peer-based emotional support, grief and trauma resources, grief seminars for adults, Good Grief Camps for children, case work assistance, connections to community-based care, and a 24/7 resource and information helpline for all who have been affected by a military death. Services are provided free of charge. TAPS has offered support to more than 85,000 surviving family members of our fallen military and the caregivers assisting them since 1994.

TAPS Impact Report

In 2018, more than 6,000 newly bereaved loved ones came to us for care. That is 17 new survivors each day. TAPS provides an array of programs, services, and support for the families of the fallen. Each year, TAPS holds more than 200 programs that welcome and support thousands of participants. We answer more than 19,000 calls to our National Military Survivor Helpline and make over 28,000 survivors outreach calls each year. We share our expertise, conducting nearly 200 training session on grief trauma and suicide postvention for military commands and other professionals across America around the world. Our staff members are primarily survivors of military loss who have grown up in the TAPS family and who have now made it their profession to pay it forward.
