Just record the number of sessions completed. Count a one hour appointment as one session. (e.g. A thirty minute is counted as a 0.5 session and a 1-1/2 hour appointment is counted as a 1.5 session, etc.)

Q8) How do I submit a testimonial?

A: Email us the Veteran’s testimonial to info@handsforheroes.net. You may send related pictures or even videos. Wherever possible, we will include these on our website.

Q9) What are some results of altruism giving?


A: Besides the benefits received by the client, the giver also benefits both physiologically and psychologically. The art of giving heals the giver by stopping stress effects on the body. The effect is coined "the helper’s high". This positive feeling mirrors the feeling after a good workout. Plus, the art of giving helps release endorphins that block out pain signals to the brain. Numerous studies have linked “lending a helping hand” to pleasant feelings and emotions. Other benefits for the giver are improved health, more energy, an improved immune system and even an increase in longevity. As an added benefit, when more people hear of your service to Veterans, their friends and family find their way to your office. More people to help!
