Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

When many military servicemembers come back from their military service, they may carry some trauma or burden depending on their service to our country. Some are afflicted with disorders, mental health issues, moral injury, and yet many still feel patriotic, so in some ways, it is conflicting. We hope to help them realize their service, no matter what they faced, was a needed part in providing a defense of our nation. And for their service, we aim to honor them, recognize them, and help them heal.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Phoenix Veterans Day Parade

This is a large-scale special event designed to honor and recognize our nation's veterans on Veterans Day.

Population(s) Served

To honor and recognize the nominees of the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade. Each year, the team garners around 100 nominees. We select seven of those nominees from World War II to the present day. Our future hope is to create a program where we can honor those who are nominated but not selected.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We hope to help our nation's military veterans realize their service, no matter what they faced, was a needed part in providing a defense of our nation. And for their service, we aim to honor them, recognize them, and help them heal.

-Presenting the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade
-Hosting additional honor and recognition events

Our board garners the funding needed to present the parade and to host additional events. We coordinate with the City of Phoenix in presenting the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade, a large-scale special event, that honors and recognizes our nation's veterans. We garner 45,000 spectators, hundreds of volunteers and work with 2500 parade participants.

We have successfully presented the parade as the sole sponsoring organization since 2013. Our veterans and our community continue to share with us the importance of this event in helping them heal.
