Backpacks for Life is an organization dedicated to creating new solutions to decades old problems for veterans of all eras.  Empowering veterans by offering them a sense of security in their well-being is the foundation of their cause.  They provide veterans with personalized assistance based on their specific needs so that veterans know that there is HOPE and that they can get on a path to self-sufficiency.  

Backpacks for Life collaborates with a vast network of fellow veteran resource organizations, including NYC Veterans Alliance's own Veterans Mutual Aid Program.
