The Tunnel to Towers Foundation has joined forces with the Government Technology & Services Coalition’s (GTSC) Homeland Security Today to promote and support the missions of these organizations.
The Tunnel to Towers 9/11 Institute mission seeks to educate Americans about what happened on September 11, 2001, and to honor the heroism of those who answered the call to protect and secure our homeland in the years that followed. This relationship will support the Tunnel to Towers Foundation’s mission to NEVER FORGET and ensure the service and sacrifices of our first responders and military service members are never forgotten.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation supports those who risk life and limb to keep us safe at home and abroad by providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children and specially adapted smart homes to catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. Tunnel to Towers has also made a pledge to help eradicate veteran homelessness nationwide, as no one who has served our country should ever have to wonder where they will live.
GTSC, a non-profit, non-partisan association of innovative, agile companies that create, develop, and implement solutions for the federal homeland and national security sectors, owns Homeland Security Today. Since 9/11, the highly acclaimed publication has focused on providing information, news, and a forum for collaboration on pressing homeland security issues for the homeland security community. Several HSToday programs recognize our nation’s heroes: the annual Holiday Hero Awards in December and the 50 Trailblazers in Homeland announced in September.
This unique partnership furthers the innovative approaches that are the hallmark of both organizations by providing a platform to share the inspiring stories of service and sacrifice of those who give life and limbs across the nation to keep us safe at home, on the border, and abroad, and news about its 9/11 Never Forget education efforts nationwide.
“Working with the GTSC and Homeland Security Today will give the Foundation an opportunity to showcase untold stories of the service and sacrifices in our first responder and military communities with an audience who is passionate about finding solutions and supporting the homeland security mission,” said Frank Siller, Chairman and CEO of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Kristina Tanasichuk, CEO & Founder of GTSC and Executive Editor of Homeland Security Today, added, “We are extremely honored and proud to join with Tunnel to Towers to share their work, recognize our heroes, and continue to support our Homeland community. Jointly, our collaboration to #NEVER FORGET will amplify efforts by both organizations to educate, remember, honor, and support our nation’s responders and citizens.”
