Engagement Through various events around the Valley, we give our Combat Veterans and their families the opportunity to be around one another. Our free events include softball, golf, hiking, BBQ's, bowling, family events and much more.
Peer Mentoring When needed, our Warfighters are given a mentor to be an ear, help develop a plan of action and follow up with them if they need encouragement to move forward. Our mentors have all undergone mentor training which includes Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST).
H.O.P.E Program H.O.P.E. stands for Help Our Patriots Endure. We connect Warfighters with members of their community to check-in, say hello and ask how everything is going. Through engagement with people from the community, Warfighters can begin to feel, more than ever, that people care about them.
Family Support We offer Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) 101 classes to family members to educate them on triggers and coping skills so they can better understand and help their Warfighter. We also offer activities for loved ones to encourage networking. Peer support is also available.
Resource Referral With the right resources, a Warfighter has a better chance for a seamless transition to their civilian life. Homelessness, joblessness, suicide, mental health, physical health, and integration continue to be an issue for those returning home from combat. We will help connect those that need further support with other non-profit organizations or government agencies.
Financial Assistance This year, we have begun to provide monetary help to assist those who need a hand with unforeseen circumstances. This year alone, we will give up to $12,000. Next year there will be even more, thanks to our community support around the valley.
Female Warfighter Program Women account for 10% of California's Veteran population. We provide engagement opportunities specifically for them, ensuring that they have all the support they need.
Outdoor Program From fishing, archery, hunting to hiking, we are proud to facilitate adventures for our Warfighters to experience together to form new bonds with others who have served in combat.
