The Harbor Site Foundation​

"Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts" -Winston Churchill


Since 2011, Harbor Site Foundation (501c3) has devoted its time and resources to assisting military veterans and families who have made the transition to Law Enforcement.  Many of our Law Enforcement members continue to serve their country in some of the hostile regions of the globe.   This is an unprecedented time in history and our veterans and law enforcement professionals are our first and last line of defense in these turbulent times.

Our goal is to give veterans in Law Enforcement and their families a place to go in order to get the most current information on benefits afforded to them as well as providing an accessible  support network they can utilize in a completely confidential manner.  We do this by reaching out to local, state and federal law enforcement agencies in the greater NY/NJ Metro area with the goal of designating Veterans Advocates for each department. Upon returning from their deployment, our service members will have a department advocate who will reach out to them to ensure any issues as far as pay, benefits or injuries (physical or non physical) sustained during their deployments are properly addressed. These advocates will be part of a larger network of veterans who have similar experiences and maintain a working knowledge of the VA system and Veterans rights. It is important to let these American heroes know that they are not alone. They are never alone.
