How to start a new purple heart chapter-

The Department Commander Ryan Sabinsh makes the decision to start a new chapter, his e-mail is ryansabinish@hotmail.com. Once we receive the Department Commander’s written approval, a Chapter Starter Kit will be sent (please specify whether emailed or snail mailed).
Once you are ready to start submitting new members or transfers, please contact us and we will start the following process:
  1)  Select an available number for the new chapter.  When a number is assigned,
        applications can be sent to Headquarters and assigned to the new chapter.
  2)  Notify us if you, or someone else, are willing to be the “Organizer” for the new chapter.
        This person would need to sign and return a Transfer Request form for the new chapter
        and verify phone number and/or email address for the website.
  3)   When at least 12 members have signed up, the Application for Charter can be submitted.
        (The Application must be signed by the Department Commander.)  Once the new chapter is
       chartered, the chapter may then apply for the EIN.
We appreciate the interest in starting a new chapter and are available to help if you have any questions or need assistance.
Thank you.  Have a wonderful day.

The Military Order of the Purple Heart was the first National Service Organization to create a Suicide Awareness Program and appoint a national officer for this position in 2016. This Program began in response to the crisis of the 20-22 veterans and active duty service men and women who end their lives to the epidemic of suicide daily.

Homelessness amongst America’s Veterans has been cut in half since 2010, yet many veterans in our nation still are without a place to call home.

Chapters, Units, and Departments nationwide participate in Stand Downs and various projects and programs to bring aid, comfort, and resources to those who find themselves displaced or homeless.

If you know a Veteran who is homeless or at imminent risk of becoming homeless, refer him or her to a local VA Medical Center, where VA staff are ready to help. Veterans and their families can also call 1-877-4AID-VET to be connected to VA services. ​​​
