We are uniquely different from other nonprofits that serve the wounded veteran and service member community in that we provide tools for a better life that are facilitated through evidence-based best practices that have measured outcomes.  Many nonprofits focus on group trips, events, or providing material support that create a temporary benefit the individual.  The recipient or participant of the latter may feel good for a brief time, be it a day, week, or month.  That feeling often diminishes over time and that individual is often right back where they started.  We believe that addressing wellness with training and education is the nucleus of creating a paradigm shift in the lives of those we serve.  The results from our programs ripple throughout the support networks of our clients and influence friends, family and their communities.
