    The Jerusalem cross was the emblem of Templar Crusaders, and may have been the personal arms of Templar Godfrey de Bouillon. The Jerusalem cross has four arms at equal distances, symbolizing the four directions, and the belief that Jerusalem was the spiritual center of the earth. The more complex version of the symbol of the symbol represents the spread of Christ's message through the four evangelists (Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John), who are represented by the four additional "crossiets." The Jerusalem cross, also known as the crusaders cross, is a heraldic cross or Christian symbol consisting of a large Greek cross surrounded by four smaller Greek crosses one on each quadrant. These five crosses are said to represent the five wounds of Jesus on the cross (small crosses for the hands Jesus on the cross (small crosses for the hands and feet, and the large central cross for the spear wound in his side.) The Ruby was added to signify Jesus dying for our sins.


    HelpingaHero.org is a 501(c)(3) non profit, non-partisan organization providing support for military personnel, severely injured in the war on terror. Our principal activity is to provide specially adapted homes for qualifying service members as well as engaging the community to provide services and resources for our wounded heroes and their families.

    To date we have awarded 90 homes in 21 states.

    Our goal is to provide our wounded heroes with a home fully adapted to their special needs. Homes have been built for heroes who are paraplegics, quadriplegics, amputees (single, double, triple, double arm, single arm), burn victims and heroes with severe traumatic brain injury and severe post traumatic stress disorder.

    Some of the adaptations for our wheelchair bound recipients include wider doors, lower countertops, roll under sink, roll in shower, tile/wood floors throughout the home, etc...and we place these homes in master planned communities where they receive ongoing support from neighbors. HelpingaHero.org has an emergency needs fund and a large recreation program that enables our heroes to get out of the hospital and go hunting, fishing, attend rodeos, trail rides, BBQ's, etc....In 2013 we will host "Caregiver Retreats" and "Marriage Retreats" as we recognize the stress on our heroes and their families. Providing families with the tools to walk through the tough times and to receive peer to peer support is crucial for their lifetime recovery and success.
