Understanding A Key Difference: HEADstrong Foundation vs. The Headstrong Project

In the interest of ensuring that no one is confused about two distinct nonprofits, we are writing this to describe the focus of each organization. The HEADstrong Foundation is a nonprofit focused on improving the lives of people affected by cancer. The Headstrong Project provides mental health care treatment for military veterans and their families. Please find below a more detailed description of both organizations:
