Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

According to reports, the rates for the active-duty individual services per 100,000 were 23 for the Army, 23.1 for the Marine Corps, 14.4 for the Air Force and 13.4 for the Navy. The Veterans Administration statistics confirm that 22 veterans die by suicide every day on American soil. The total number of those losing their battle grows larger with each day outreach and treatments are not able to be done.

Charting impact

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

SAVE22 is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, focused on fighting veteran, active duty & first responder suicide. SAVE22 stands shoulder to shoulder with the men and women who have served our country and the communities within. SAVE22 listens to their stories and remind them that they are never alone or forgotten. When they are struggling with the demons of their past, SAVE22 supports and guides them to healing.

To provide outreach and support programs to military veterans and first responders in the fight to end suicide.
SAVE22s mission is to provide support, assistance, volunteers, and education services to veterans and first responders who are at risk of suicide. SAVE22 believes that by working together with local organizations and community leaders, we can make a real difference in the lives of those who have served our country.

In short, we S.A.V.E.

Support - To provide support services to those who have been affected by suicide, including counseling and other resources.

Assist - To provide assistance to those seeking help and foster good relations with the organizations that support the cause.

Volunteer - To develop outreach programs to reach those who are at risk of suicide but may not know where to turn for help.

Educate - To provide training and resources on suicide prevention to local organizations and community leaders.

We are dedicated to raising awareness about suicide prevention among veterans and first responders. We believe that suicide is preventable, and we are committed to providing resources and support to those who are struggling with suicidal thoughts or behaviors.

In order to accomplish our vision, SAVE22 strives to reach as many veterans, active-duty personnel, first responders, and adjacent family members as possible. SAVE22 welcomes the opportunity to offer awareness, prevention, and outreach to communities and we do our best to meet the needs and requests of the organizations that reach out to us.

In short, with H.O.P.E.

Hike The purpose of the ANNUAL SAVE22 hike is to allow everyone to honor their loved ones, whether it has been a loss or a survivor, and to raise awareness to others fighting their demons, that they have someone to turn to. The veteran, first responder, and local communities come together each year to give their support and sometimes the closure many have been looking for.

Outreach In the SAVE22 family, we are your loyal brothers, sisters, and confidantes who provide support and resources when the struggle with PTSD, depression, and anxiety becomes overwhelming. Day or night, our members have spoken with, traveled to, and transported brother or sister in the throes of internal conflict.

Programs Characteristically, SAVE22 designs our programs to be small, informal groups of usually, 4-8 participants at a time, with an occasional exception. Although some of our programs are at larger venues, there will always be someone willing to step outside the crowd for private time.

Events Events are the foundation of SAVE22s outreach. This enables SAVE22 to reach communities. Events are the primary source of the majority of our impacts and assists. SAVE22 aims to be available at events that cater to our targeted demographic.

SAVE22 has created the aforementioned activities, events and programs that have proven to be successful and continue to grow year after year. Through diligent planning and budgeting; with the continued support and generosity from our community, area businesses and individuals; we will continue to offer these programs to our veterans.

SAVE22 continues to bring awareness to the veteran suicide rate through community events such as
our annual SAVE22 Hike, fundraisers, and community participation. SAVE22 actively works with veterans on a daily basis by offering a twenty-four hour crisis hotline personally answered by veterans, guidance on services offered to veterans in their area, transportation to/from medical/VA appointments, emergency assistance, critical response in their greatest time of need and programs such as golf outings, fishing trips, motorsports events, art sessions, hiking expeditions and equestrian experiences. These programs provide veterans an opportunity to spend the day participating in an activity they enjoy while in the company of fellow veterans, at no cost to them. As SAVE22 continues to grow here in Ohio, North and South Carolina, we look forward to expanding throughout the United States through local chapters that would bring awareness and veteran programs to communities everywhere across the nation.
