Hidden Heroes

Edenville Township is proud to support military and veteran caregivers, our community’s hidden heroes, as an Elizabeth Dole Foundation Hidden Heroes City. Founded by Senator Elizabeth Dole in 2012, the Elizabeth Dole Foundation and it’s Hidden Heroes Campaign brings vital attention to the untold stories of military caregivers and provides a network for military caregivers to connect with their peers and access carefully vetted resources. If you are a military or veteran caregiver, please visit hiddenheroes.org to discover hundreds of carefully vetted resources and an online peer support community exclusively for caregivers.

Caregiver No-Cost Respite Opportunity

Respite relief gives a caregiver time. EDF has joined with CareLinx and the Department of Veterans Affairs to offer a 35 hour no-cost respite opportunity for military and veteran caregivers. Respite services can include meals, transportation, cleaning, and more; and are often provided within the home. Services can be arranged for as little as an afternoon, or for several days or weeks. Caregivers can click here to apply!
