To facilitate comprehensive treatment and provide a support network for military veterans, professional athletes and their families.


aboUt us

After The Impact Fund (ATIF) facilitates custom treatment plans for Veterans and Retired Professional Athletes with injuries that are seen and unseen.  Whether on the field of play or battlefield, every hit takes a toll and many end their careers suffering in silence. Through our vetted resources, ATIF provides a clear path to healing for these individuals and their families. Bringing communities together, our path helps create new skills, helps mend relationships, and helps generate a renewed sense of purpose.

ATIF also provides independent and trusted resources to veterans and players’ families through a private and secure forum, in addition to one-on-one support from other family members who have similar experiences. 


Two trusted entities, The Independence Fund and Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund, have joined forces and formed the AFTER THE IMPACT FUND (ATIF). ATIF was created to ensure these veterans and legends receive the treatment and guidance they need, while endeavoring to exponentially increase the number of veterans, athletes and their families, who can be helped. By contributing to After The Impact Fund, you will be partnering with two established organizations with a history of leadership in helping their respective communities.




From their initial call, Veterans, Athletes and their families are greeted with a warm, caring life care manager who takes their initial info and then has them speak to our Staff Psychologist for an extensive assessment of current needs, both medical and psychological. 


Through partnerships with major medical specialists, we have expedited access to the best treatment available, including behavioral and mental health, TBI, PTSD, addiction, preventative health and ortho reconstructions. We provide travel assistance if travel is required, and often cover costs that fall outside insurance or Medicare coverage. Each individual is unique, so care is taken to source the best treatment available for that individual’s need. This can often include finding local resources for those who can’t travel.


After medical and/or psychological treatment, clients are given a customized aftercare plan that is discussed with the client & family. Goals are determined with steps taken to implement & facilitate the recommendations provided by treatment partners. Our ATIF Team checks in regularly with the Veterans, Athletes and their families to make sure they are still on track. 


This program was developed as a way to inform, educate, and support by creating a strong connection with others who are experiencing the same situations.  ATIF provides group members with a “safe space” to share information and learn from the experiences of others via a private, password protected forum that is updated weekly, if not daily, with information & stories relevant to our communities.
