Massachusetts General Hospital
Home Base Program
Home Base was created in 2009 to serve Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and families affected by combat or deployment-related stress and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) – the “invisible wounds of war.”
The Home Base Program provides clinical care and support services for service members, veterans and families throughout New England; offers community education about the “invisible wounds of war” and the challenges facing military families; and conducts research to improve understanding and treatment of Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) and TBI. It is estimated that as many as one in three Iraq and Afghanistan veterans experience the effects of one of these injuries.

Easter Seals collaborates with Home Base on the Home Base Relief Fund, which provides financial assistance and resources to veterans and families currently receiving services from the Home Base Program. Referrals to Easter Seals and applications for funds are made through the Home Base Program, and may include one-time financial assistance to support the basic needs, health and well being of a veteran or family member while they are receiving care at Home Base.
