Our Mission: In the United States, more than 22 Veterans commit suicide every single day (known as “Combat 22”). That equates to over 8000 Veterans annually. Research points to a number of causes for this, including untreated depression, anxiety, PTSD, as well as failure to reintegrate back into society.
Our non-profit incorporation, Operation Warrior Refuge, has a mission to help those veterans who are suffering from the invisible wounds obtained during their service. Our goal is to heal our brave veterans and to help to lower that terrible number.
Our Work: We help Veterans heal from within, using a cutting-edge form of mental health therapy called Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. Our team is comprised of licensed mental health professionals and horse professionals working together specially selected horses on a scenic farm setting. We want to share this beautiful location and the incredible effects of this therapy with as many warriors and their families as we can.
Our Ask: In order to continue providing this vital therapy free of charge, we need your help. Each therapy session costs us a total of $200. Thanks to considerable fundraising in 2015 we have been able to provide 38 therapy sessions since August, 2015. We now need to raise funds to reach our goal of providing at least 200 therapy sessions in 2016 for a total fundraising goal of $40,000 for 2016 sessions. Please help us continue our mission to Combat 22 by donating today.
