About Us

Mountains to Miracles Veterans Foundation (MMVF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization established to help and serve our veterans in the Northeast who are in need.

Why MMVF was founded:
In 2010, Paul Dubois, a veteran and Vice President of Family Motorcoach Association, received a call from a staff member about a request the organization had received. Former Marine Sgt. Bryan Purcell had requested a wheelchair equipped motorhome to transport Marine Sgt Eddie Ryan, who was wounded in Iraq and suffers from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), to Washington DC to participate in the Marine Marathon.

Despite a nationwide search, such a vehicle could not be obtained. Not to be defeated,a new solution was found.  In cooperation with Alpin Haus RV of Amsterdam and Adirondack Trailways of Kingston, N.Y. and the use of an airline wheelchair their mission was successful and SGT Ryan was granted his wish.

Upon their return Sgt. Purcell and Paul DuBois vowed to start an organization to assist veterans.  This led to the formation of the Northeast Veterans Outreach Program which in 2012 became Mountains to Miracle Veterans Foundation, a not for profit organization established to serve veterans in the Northeast.
