GALE SAYERS FOUNDATION

Our Mission


The Gale Sayers Program (GSF) has articulated a mission to “compassionately serve veterans and their families, providing individualized care and navigation to help heal the invisible wounds of war.” Chief among its guiding principles are confidentiality, accessibility, and availability of care regardless of ability to pay or discharge status. 

Today, Gale Sayers Foundation is thriving.
An energetic team works to support service members who deployed in support of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and have returned to civilian life in the greater Chicago region with combat-related conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury(TBI), military sexual trauma (MST), and Moral Injury (MI) and family challenges.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I found Gale Sayers Foundation at a time in my life when I was really hurting. I walked in the doors, and felt like I had just come home! I was welcomed with warmth, and encouragement, and friendship. I am so grateful that God brought me to this place! I am also grateful to be part of an organization that cares so deeply for its citizens.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED
