Mission and History

We seek to improve the quality of life of individuals and families who provide daily, substantial care for wounded, ill, or injured veterans. We want to ensure that every caregiving family is recognized, accepted, and supported.

Empower Caregivers

to advocate for their wounded veterans and themselves.

Build Working Partnerships

with government, businesses, and community organizations that provide resources needed to help veteran caregivers achieve a healthy quality of life balance.

Create Awareness

through a broad range of media, that caregiving families are with us in our communities, and that they deserve the continued support of a grateful nation.

Core Values


We establish genuine relationships with the families we serve founded on trust and compassion so that we can develop a clear understanding of the whole picture and best address the wide range of issues our families encounter.


We are fortunate to co-exist with many organizations, resources, and programs dedicated to serving the veteran population. Whenever possible, we explore and connect with resources that could benefit our families to avoid duplication of existing services.


We are honored to have the opportunity to help these most deserving families improve their quality of life, and seek to reflect that in every interaction.

Our History

Mike and Charlotte Zeiders saw the need for support of wounded veteran caregivers more than a decade ago.

From Our Community Nationwide

As a county veteran service officer, the Quality Of Life Foundation provides expertise in all areas of the VA caregiver program, offering education for our team, and providing support for the veteran families that we serve.  The QoLF team provides personalized education, support and advocacy that cannot be found anywhere else.

Veteran Service Officer

“Andrea's testimony... brought me to tears to hear those words said out loud, THANK YOU. What it means to me is beyond words that I can express.”

Caregiver of a Wounded Veteran

To have QoLF take the lead and connect us to the PCAFC Administrator DIRECTLY so we could share our concerns, experiences, solutions and to feel “heard.”  Many positive results came out of those meetings which would have not happened without the advocacy and leadership of QoLF.
