Tragedy Assistance Programs for Survivors (T.A.P.S.)
The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (T.A.P.S.) offers compassionate care to all those grieving the loss of a loved one who died while serving in our Armed Forces, or as a result of his or her service. Since 1994, T.A.P.S. has provided comfort and hope 24/7 through a national peer support network and connection to grief resources, all at no cost to surviving families and loved ones.
During the weekend of November 16-18, Quinn hosted 64 T.A.P.S. families at Flowery Branch to thank them for the ultimate sacrifice of their fallen hero. Quinn, who has a strong appreciation to those who serve our country, believes the military is one of the best examples of what being a part of a team means because of the connection that members share with one another.

“T.A.P.S. is an organization that means a lot to me and my wife Stacey. T.A.P.S. supports those families who make the ultimate sacrifice for our country.” - Head Coach Dan Quinn
