There are many nonprofits supporting veterans, and Jesse Brown of Plymouth welcomes them all.

“We’re all in this together,” said Brown, a Marine veteran who along with fellow veteran and business partner Matthew Mastroianni created Plymouth-based Heidrea for Heroes in 2013, a nonprofit that provides free adaptive home and vehicle modifications, wheelchair ramps, mobility equipment, and other support for qualified veterans and their families.

“The end goal is to help vets,” he said.

The partners served in the 1990s, started their own construction firm, and wanted to give back, forming Heidrea, an amalgam of their wives’ names, Heidi and Andrea. The nonprofit has helped more than 100 veterans in a variety of ways since its inception, Brown said.

“We just got a disabled Vietnam veteran in Rockland an all-terrain wheelchair; he had been an avid hunter but can’t walk,” he said. “Now he can get back out into the woods.

“And that’s the whole thing . . . giving veterans that independence and freedom they’re looking for and deserve,” he said.
