Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Daily we lose an estimated 20-22 veterans to PTSD. Recent scientific studies reveal clinically significant reductions in PTSD symptoms in veterans with service dogs and other therapeutic measures. Training these dogs takes months and costs up to $25,000 to raise and train, other therapeutic interventions such as equine therapy can cost several thousands. Most veterans are unable to afford that amount, this is where we can step in.

Charting impact

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

We are here to Help Heal Hidden Wounds and change Veterans lives. Assisting Veterans with PTSD obtain resources that at times are financially impossible but would help the Veteran live the life they deserve.

Currently we seek out certified programs, therapies offered by non profits to help Veterans with PTSD. When we find an organization that offers programs we sit down with them and discuss how they do what they offer, what are their success rates and what their current and future goals are. If we find the program is legitimate, falls within our mission and wants to help Veterans then we develop a partnership with them.
Veterans must be diagnosed with PTSD in order to qualify for our services. If they are working with a non profit we have partnered with and are in need of financial assistance they must complete an application form detailing their need and purpose for the need. The Veteran must have the will and the want to seek treatment or therapeutic measures. Once the application is obtained the Board of Directors will review and determine if the budget can support the need or a portion of the need. All funds are paid to the non profit partner for the Veteran if approved.

Currently we are only able to make two donations a year depending on the amounts requested or needed. We have been very happy to be able to maintain this for the last two years. Now that we are established as a non profit in Texas our goal is to raise more funds and assist more Veterans in the upcoming years. Starting off slowly we would like to double our donations in 2020 or even make an extra donation in 2019 if funding is received.

In 2017 we provided our first service dog to a Veteran after 6 months of being formed
In 2018 we were able to provide financial assistance to a Veteran that allowed him to train his own Service Dog
In 2018 we were able to provide financial sponsorship of a Equine Therapy Horse named Doobie which provides Veterans a free avenue of Therapy through horsemanship.
In 2019 we have provided sponsorship to a Veteran non profit which brings the Veteran Community together for a day of camaraderie and learning about other organizations within the community that can help.
In 2019 we have provided financial sponsorship to a Equine Therapy Horse named Giggles which provides Veterans a free avenue of Therapy through horsemanship.
We are currently seeking an organization that we can work with that provides service dogs to Veterans, this would allow us to assist with offsetting the cost for the Veteran.
Our goal for 2020 and beyond is to continue our work but expand our program into other cities within Texas and help more Veterans based on our financials. We want to find other therapeutic programs to work with which assist Veterans with PTSD.
2020 we have been able to provide financial sponsorship to the Equine Therapy Horse Giggles, continuing to provide a free avenue of Therapy for Veterans through horsemanship. 2020 has been challenging for fundraising due to the pandemic, however we continue to receive donations that we hope to be able to use assisting Veterans that have been displaced by the pandemic.
2021 we have provided 2 Veterans financial assistance to obtain a Service Dog, we will also continue to assist Veterans as the need presents itself in the Equine Therapy programs.
