Our Mission

The Heather French Foundation for Veterans, Inc. was established as a reaction to the overwhelming needs facing America’s veterans.  The foundation’s goal is to provide significant financial and educational support to community based providers who offer services and support in the areas of homelessness, healthcare, and housing.

The foundation is a nonprofit corporation that is organized and operated exclusively for charitable purposes.  Non-discriminating against veterans, the primary purpose is to raise and expend funds for worthy projects to improve the mental and physical health services and housing opportunities available to veterans of the Armed Forces, regardless of age, gender, race, religion or period of service.






A Message From Heather French Henry

Miss America 2000/ Executive Director

During my tour as Miss America 2000 I traveled the country gaining a national perspective on veterans issues. From homelessness to healthcare issues my concern has grown into a life long passion for our nation’s heroes. As the daughter of a disabled Vietnam veteran I have experienced first hand the struggles facing veterans nationwide. 

Reconnecting the community to veterans remains an imperative part of our mission. Partnering with community organizations, school groups, and government agencies is the ideal way to increase awareness, education and funding for our nation’s veterans.

Together we could educate young and old alike, work to increase funding for veteran’s organizations, and make sure that every person in America knows about the plight of our forgotten heroes. But, most importantly, we are reaching out and touching the hands and heart of every veteran and encouraging people like you to do the same.

“During her year of service as Miss America 2000, Heather worked tirelessly on behalf of our nation’s homeless veterans who have never had a better advocate. Heather has been called ‘every veteran’s daughter’ and I was priviledged to recognize her contributions by naming H.R. 936 on her behalf.” Congressman Lane Evans
