What we aim to solve

We aim to address the growing severity of familial strife and suicide among veterans and first responders. It is our belief that a contributor to this epidemic is loss of relevance and purpose. When someone leaves the military, the individual can feel lost in the world; without any sense of purpose, they lose their relevance. Our programs are designed to be a rally point for these individuals so they know to whom to turn. Our clients are encouraged to identify that which makes them feel fulfilled - what are their passions? Once a passion is identified we determine how to incorporate that into Resiliency Outreach's programs, and how to get the individual involved. By doing this, we believe relevance will be restored, and a sense of accountability will be established; accountability for self and for others.

We would like to gain enough equity and support to purchase our own property. This satisfies several needs and can be used 24/7/365. By having our own retreat in Kentucky, and by garnering enough support, we can provide for every veteran or first responder that calls upon us for any activity. This retreat can be a family retreat, camping trip, hunting/fishing trip, shooting events, etc. The place will be a huge blessing to all who come and to all who serve. We believe this place will allow healing to take place, and our clients can be inspired to pay it forward in their own community. Eventually, through clients paying it forward, we can start to expand our efforts nationally to reach an exponentially larger population. In Kentucky and Tennessee, there is the potential to reach over 1 Million individuals (just military and veterans). It is our goal to impact each of them.

Establish purpose and relevance: - When someone leaves the military, the individual can feel lost in the world; without any sense of purpose, they lose their relevance. Our programs are designed to be a rally point for these individuals so they know to whom to turn. Our clients are encouraged to identify that which makes them feel fulfilled - what are their passions? Once a passion is identified we determine how to incorporate that into Resiliency Outreach's programs, and how to get the individual involved. By doing this, we believe relevance will be restored, and a sense of accountability will be established; accountability for self and for others. Adopt an acre program: - For every $2000 a person or business donates, we will dedicate a parcel of land in honor of them. This will be present for all to see for many, many years to come. Partnerships - We believe in win-win-win relationships. We take nothing for granted, and we always aim to give back to those who help us. By having strategic partnerships, we will be able to achieve more, with less.

We measure success not by how much money is brought in, but by how many people we serve. We measure our effectiveness by calculating our conversion rate of (how many people we serve / how many volunteers we gain). The more volunteers, and the more people we serve, the more rapid our reputation will grow and our brand will be recognized. The more visual our organization becomes, the more apt people will start to support our endstate. Our mantra is, "focus on the people, and the rest will follow."

Out organization is still in its infancy. We are learning and growing. So far we have succeeded in building a reputation amongst a small demographic on Fort Campbell and the homeless community of Clarksville, TN. We have made strategic partnerships in the outdoor industry who will promote what we are doing and trying to accomplish. Of note is our bowfishing initiative: All-American Bowfishing League. - Veteran bowfishing teams will compete in some of the biggest tournaments around the country. Towards the end of the season, a champion team will be crowned, and that team will have free entry into some of the biggest tournaments in the nation. Additionally, a veteran or first responder will be nominated as a guest shooter who will earn the same privileges as the champion team.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
