I was impressed by the sincere gratitude expressed by the vets who have received assistance from HHN. Then I began to realize that our veterans are being 'assisted' by receiving off-brand, refurbished Tablets. That is unbelievable given the tremendous amount of money this charity receives. When the SPOUSE of the Director is being paid a 6 figure salary - our Veterans should certainly be provided with BRAND NEW, BRAND NAME tablets!! It has also been reported that this charity 'employs' several family members of the Director; all being salaried employees!!
It's disgusting & shameful. What percentage of receipts is actually seen by our Heroes? And just how many 'employees' are required to implement this program. To their credit - our Hero Vets are nearly unanimous in their expression of gratitude for this small effort. They deserve a great deal more.
most of the money goes to the husband doctor of the executive director. sounds like a scam outfit.
Healing Heroes has been amazing to work with! My husband needed help with his recovery and after applying for services they found a provider to help him. I want to say Thank You!!
Review from Guidestar
The Executive Director is paid $100,000+. Also a review of their IRS Form 990 (2014) shows some questionable expenditures between the Charity and the Executive Directors Husband. Also this Charity Paid Millions to Facebook and other marketing firms at a ration of Marketing to care provided that is uneasy.
the tampa tribune reports that most of their money goes to the husband doctor of the woman that runs this scam charity
I read about this 'charity' in our local newspaper. http://www.tampabay.com/news/business/veterans-charity-paid-its-own-founder-to-provide-medical-care/2157190. It is not just a husband/wife team, I know of the family, and the three kids as well as the wife's mother are also on the payroll for doing bogus jobs. I don't doubt that the little money they use to actually help veterans helps people, but they are more interested in keeping the money for themselves. This is not "non-profit" for the Spiegel family.
sounds like it is a family run "non-profit" where the money is collected by the wife and professional fundraisers and given to support the husband's medical practice
