 What is Hero Hut?  

Hero Hut is a 501c3 nonprofit that began at the Milwaukee Irish Fest in 2018.  It is now a nationwide non-profit!

The Hero Hut Mission: All too often Veterans and First Responders encounter life without the resources and community they so desperately need and deserve!  In an effort to change that, Hero Hut was born with a vision to empower Veterans to discover a civilian life defined by service and surrounded by community.   Through our presence at local and national events we seek to create a welcoming place for Veterans to relax, build friendships, forge a connection to their community, and learn about services and opportunities available to them.  Ranging from Veteran Affairs, to education, to job placement, to mental health, and more.  But Hero Hut is not just a place for Veterans - we take pride in building community and serving Military Service members, First Responders, their families and loved ones.  So whether you are a Veteran, love a Veteran, or simply want to help Veterans, you've come to the right place. Welcome to Hero Hut and thank you for joining our community!
