Our Purpose: Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) is an Army Community Service program designed to provide short-term and long-term support to the Survivors of Soldiers who die while on active duty.
Our Vision: Compassionate and determined outreach to Survivors.
Our Goal: To be intentional yet noninvasive in extending the hand of support to the survivors of fallen Soldiers at their point of need with meaningful programs and caring counsel resulting in Survivor Families knowing that others are concerned for their well being during their journey through grief.
What We Do
Facilitate support groups where Families and individuals can share feelings, burdens, thoughts, resources and information in a safe and understand setting.
Provide care for Survivor Families beyond what Casualty Officers and Unit Care Teams can offer.
Offer on site professional financial counseling to assist Families in adjusting to their unique monetary circumstance following the loss of a loved one.
Co-located with SOS are representatives from Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS). TAPS is a non-profit 501(c)3 veteran’s service organization created in 1994 to provide support to anyone who died in military service to America regardless of branch of service. http://www.taps.org
