About Us

Heroes Among Us of Texas is an IRS 501(c)(3) program that provides funding for military veterans’ initiatives through different sponsored events.  Although we support several veterans’ projects, our primary focus is in support of Patriot Anglers Fly Fishing and the Ft. Hood Warrior Transition Unit.   HAU not only provides financial support for these programs, but actively participates with them throughout the year, engaging in holiday outreach programs and personal support efforts.

Other organizations we have helped:  Over the years we have provided funding for many other veteran initiatives including 22 KILL, HOMH (Help Our Military Heroes),  Texas Tech University School of Nursing Veteran Scholarship program, and the Adaptive Training Foundation in Dallas.

In 2016 we teamed with Help Our Military Heroes to present a new specially adapted van to quadriplegic wounded warrior.

Since inception we have raised over $300,000 for veteran programs.
