Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program, is dedicated to healing the invisible wounds of war for Post-9/11 Veterans, Service Members and their Families through world-class clinical care, wellness, education and research.
Following the Boston Red Sox 2007 World Series win, players and owners met with wounded Veterans at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and learned of the medical challenges many of our returning Veterans face. Red Sox Chairman Tom Werner made a commitment following this four-hour visit to partner with Massachusetts General Hospital in order to address the signature invisible wounds of war. Home Base is the first partnership of its kind in the nation between an Academic Medical Center and a Major League Baseball team.
As a National Center of Excellence, Home Base operates the first and largest private-sector clinic in the nation devoted to healing invisible wounds such as post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, anxiety, depression, co-occurring substance use disorder, military sexual trauma family relationship challenges and other issues associated with military service. Since its inception, Home Base has served more than 11,000 Veterans and family members with care and support, trained more than 45,000 clinicians, educators and community members nationally, and remains at the forefront of discovering new treatments - ensuring a brighter future for the 21st century warrior and military family.
Your support is crucial to our success - 95% of our funding is based upon individual, corporate, and foundational support.

Bill Geiger is a father, a husband, a son, an Army Veteran, and a Home Base champion. After returning from deployment with invisible wounds of war, Bill sought help through Home Base's two-week Intensive Clinical Program (ICP). In the ICP, Veterans and Service Members from across the U.S. are flown to Boston to receive one year's of treatment in two weeks. Transportation, lodging and meals are covered for a participating Veteran and an accompanying Family Member. This means military members on the west coast, like Bill, can get the care they deserve. Watch Bill's story of perseverance below.
Home Base accepts patients from across the country, including Southwest Florida. If you'd like to learn more about Home Base's Intensive Clinical Program, call the Home Base Clinic at 617-724-5202 or Connect to Care online.
