DynCorp International is once again a proud supporter of this year’s Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) Honor Guard Gala. The event, which supports families of the fallen, will take place March 18, 2015, at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.
The event serves as TAPS’ primary fundraiser for the year and proceeds directly benefit their programs to support families that have lost a loved one serving in the military or in support of a military mission.
DynCorp International and TAPS
Last March, DI and TAPS signed a memorandum of agreement to provide support to families of fallen DI personnel. This was the first formal agreement established with a private company. TAPS has previously made similar agreements with each branch of the U.S. military.
TAPS now works hand-in-hand with DI’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to provide survivors of DI employees comfort and care through comprehensive services and programs including peer-based emotional support, case work assistance, connections to community-based care, and grief and trauma resources.
The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors is a non-profit organization offering compassion, comfort and care to the thousands of family members coping with the death of a loved one serving in the military, or in support of, the military mission. TAPS helps surviving families cope and heal in the aftermath of their loss through a variety of programs, including a national peer support network, the annual National Survivor Seminar, Good Grief Camps, grief and trauma resources, and a toll-free 24-hour helpline. All services are free of charge to the families and provided through the generosity of private corporations, foundations and individuals.
