about us

The Eisenhower Center is a 30-45 day residential treatment program that pairs military veterans and retired professional athletes.  Since opening four years ago, they quickly realized veterans and athletes have a natural camaraderie. They become curious about each other's experiences, which foster communication, they gain a greater sense of community, and it enhances empathy with each other.  In the military and professional sports, both populations train, play, win and lose together- it only makes sense they heal together.  



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 this fund, you will be partnering with two established organizations with a history of leadership in helping their respective populations.
