Foster Hope and Healing
There are sacrifices made every day in defense of freedom around the world.
Bring Stability and Security
There are families left behind, and widows and orphans struggling to survive.
Engage the Global Community
Grief is universal and TAPS unites those who mourn worldwide in an effort to heal.
Triumph over Terrorism
We must raise our voices in triumph over terrorism.
Create a Global Community
Our goal at TAPS International is to share best practices in peer based emotional support programs; to bring the surviving families of coalition partners who served together and died together into an international network of support; to strengthen an understanding between cultures of coalition partners that grief is universal; and to give surviving families a voice in creating stable societies, thereby continuing the mission their loved one died for.
From organizing annual global working group gatherings, leading hope & healing expeditions to communities experiencing traumatic loss, localizing opportunities for meaningful employment of widows, and creating new content that speaks to the universality of the grief experience, TAPS convenes the world's citizens within the shared values of family and community.
