Mission Statement:


The SSG Christopher W. Swanson Support Charity for Veterans and their Families INC. is a Taxed exempt 501 (c) 3 non- profit organization and will show Compassion, Thankfulness and Gratitude by providing:


1.    The purchase of a home or homes on the Chesapeake Bay for Military members and their families to use for a period of time as a haven from the stresses of being treated at Military hospitals and to veterans that have served this great country, giving them a sense of well being and allowing them to reflect with each other.


2.    Promote healing by providing programs such as professional and peer-group counseling and activities for military service members and their families to include parents and siblings of soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. 


3.    To award scholarships to church youth ministries and high school students who demonstrate leadership values that Christopher believed in such as Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage by leading projects that give back to the community.


4.   To assist by providing financial support to other organizations that provides support to our service members.
