What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The suicide rate among male and female veterans and military service members exceeds the national rate for the general population. Veterans make up 20% of national suicides, with approximately 22 veterans dying by suicide every day. Three out of five veterans who died by suicide were diagnosed as having a mental health condition prior to committing suicide. It’s common for veterans with PTSD to experience suicidal thoughts… Feeling suicidal is not a character defect, and it doesn’t mean that you are crazy, weak, or flawed. Treating transitioning and homeless veterans dealing with combat related PTSD, the same way as we would any other person is critical to providing them the support they need for care, transition to employment and guidance.

Our programs

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

Social Outreach and Integration

Veterans need to attend social gatherings and outreach with those who understand the military life and combat situations, they feel more comfortable around those who have been through similar experiences. The trips and outreach create new avenues for friendship, comradery, holistic wellness experiences, and training. These programs provide several of these facets to every veteran who attends.

Population(s) Served
Veterans

Through meeting multiple veterans during every event that is held, there are always those that are in need of assistance along their journey of integration back into society in a meaningful way. Some of these avenues of support include: education and training, supplies for the homeless, medical and funeral expenses, and other financial support paid directly to municipalities, funeral homes, hospitals, doctors, landlords, etc.

Through our Operation Homecoming program, Sabot Foundation helps and provides direct assistance in the Los Angeles Metro Area for at-risk and homeless veterans in collaboration with a Los Angeles-based realty group that owns/operates 11 multi-unit properties located in areas from West Los Angeles to the San Fernando Valley, totaling over 300 units. We also work with the Veterans Administration as well as veterans in The Domiciliary Care Program, the Department of Veterans Affairs oldest health care program, established through legislation passed in the late 1860’s, after the Civil War. Several of these properties have been approved through the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing program (HUD-VASH). This collaboration allows us to provide housing solutions along with integrating our programs to assist veterans who are at-risk or homeless.

PRISM is our way of describing our holistic program. It encompasses a series of platforms providing integration tools to assist veterans in their Recovery, Structure and Management of ailments such as PTSD, MTBI, MST and other stress challenges such as Anxiety and Depression. This program employs a combination of holistic options to help veterans overcome their obstacles.

The foundation recruits and engages with qualified experts for each of these platforms for both private and group settings for veterans.

To be effective and long-lasting, the healing is gradual, and the therapeutic process is affirming, empathetic and uplifting. PRISM assists veterans with dedicating time and embracing the opportunity to develop inner strengths. PRISM renews their courage to continue recovering and healing from the long conflicts in Iraq, Vietnam and Afghanistan and extends to other veterans who have served in various parts of the world.

Charting impact

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

Even though it is discussed more often, difficulties with mental health are not the most significant hurdle facing combat veterans returning to civilian life. Problems with unemployment, housing, finances and family issues all challenge military personnel transitioning from active duty to civilian life. All combat veterans face these problems. Our Foundation aims to address these problems through several types of financial and experiential assistance, as well as educating third parties so they understand there is also a need for them to help in that way.

We are focused on expanding opportunities and assistance for combat veterans to return to a productive and satisfying civilian life. Better job opportunities, affordable housing, counseling and holistic alternatives for a smooth transition to civilian life are necessary for this process.

We engage in and promote the access of resources to Veterans and help improve their quality of life as well as create an environment that fosters committed community integration, belonging and social connection, for the veterans we assist. We also forge connections with community partners and service providers, to grow outreach by implementing programs, improvement and accountability procedures, including process and outcome evaluations. Additionally, we build partnerships and establish an organized process to offer assistance through health professionals, other veterans centers, technical schools and other foundations on a wider scale.

In the past 2.5 years we have committed over $800k in funds with which assisted us with execution of our strategy and vision. We also have diverse partnerships with public relations firms and extensive partnerships within the veteran community.

We have impacted over 1700 veterans through outreach, events, holistic health and therapies, financial assistance, education and job training, job opportunities and legal assistance. We continually provide them with assistance and check in with them frequently.

We have also contributed over $100k to 32 similarly aligned non-profit organizations through various financial donations and volunteerism to support their programs.

Based on our accomplishments, our growth and progress is exponential given the foundation’s time of operation (founded in 2017).
