Our Leadership

The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) provides a wonderful support network for the surviving families of those who have died in service to America. To accomplish our mission, TAPS has a small professional staff and a large national volunteer network, managed by our Board of Directors and supported by our Honorary Board. We are grateful to those who give of their time and talent.

Honorary Board – TAPS is fortunate to have the involvement and endorsement of some of America’s most prominent patriots. They understand the mission of TAPS, and honor the families of our fallen warriors by supporting our programs.

Board of Directors – Our Board monitors the policies and management of TAPS, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The Board meets quarterly at TAPS National Headquarters in Washington, DC.

Corporate Officers – Program and Business activities are managed by TAPS Executive Committee, comprised of TAPS Chairman and CFO, respectively.

Program Staff - TAPS has a small cadre of professional staff to manage Survivor programs, services, case management, and fundraising.

Peer Mentors - The heart of TAPS is the Peer Mentor Network comprised of hundreds of surviving family members who have become Peer Mentors. These survivors volunteer their time to reach out to the newly bereaved, offering their most precious gift – their understanding and support.

Mentors - Our goal at our National and Regional Good Grief Camps is to have one Mentor for each child.  Most of these mentors are members of the Armed Forces.  They spend the day with the children, engaging them in activities that help them share feelings, express emotions, and cope with their overwhelming grief.
