What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Special Operations Forces community of active duty and veterans has and continues to make significant personal sacrifices above and beyond the call of duty to protect our freedom.\n\nThese warriors are left with invisible wounds of war; post traumatic stress, traumatic brain injuries, chronic pain and desperately need our assistance in their recovery. Roughly 22 veterans a day commit suicide nationwide according to the *Department of Veterans Affairs.\n\n* U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, "VA Conducts Nation's Largest Analysis of Veteran Suicide"\n\nThe need for this foundation is to help our active duty operators mentally and physically transition to civilian life.\n\nThe isolation that our Special Operations community has indured because of Covid-19 makes their need for our program more urgent than ever.

Charting impact

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

Our Special Operations Forces have been at war for over 20 years. That includes constant combat deployments all over the world. The Covid-19 shutdown, the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the open boarders have increased the critical need for our Warrior Healing Program. Can you imagine the things they have had to do and have seen? Imagine the physical and mental stress that builds up over the years. That is why our Special Operations active duty, veterans and families need our attention and steadfast support. The effects of combat don't end when they transition from active duty to civilian life. The longer they are in combat the longer it takes to transition back to where they started. There is so little support available for them from government programs. The Brian Bill Foundation's Warrior Healing Program is here to fill the gap and help our Special Operations deal with the mental ramifications associated with their mTBI, combat PTS and chronic pain. Our Warrior Healing Program has been a huge success by helping over 500 warriors and families from 2017 to 2023. The effects of the PTSD, mTBIs and suicide issues do not go away if not addressed, and they can surface at any time. This is why the Brian Bill Foundation is here.

Brian Bill Foundation's Warrior Healing Retreats provides an Individual therapeutic program targeting combat PTSD, mTBI, chronic pain and suicide issues for Special Operations Forces active duty and veterans which has proven outcomes that demonstrate substantial change for participants. Couples Programs educate and strengthen families so they can cope with combat PTS, mTBI and chronic pain and suicide issues. Individual sessions before and after our retreat programs with licensed mental health counselors provide added contact and support for those in need. Brian Bill Foundation programs include the opportunity to learn about the injuries, experience successful strategies, learn about and try therapeutic support modalities such as Equine Therapy, Individual therapy with a licensed mental health counselor who is experienced and trained to work with military who have trauma, Yoga, iRest, Meditation, Breathing Techniques, Nutrition, Suicide Awareness Training and Team Building sessions.

We provide a Warrior Healing Retreats every month. We have private individual and corporate donors and grants. Additionally, we have fundraisers throughout the year. These fundraising avenues allow The Brian Bill Foundation to fund our Warrior Healing Program and provide a cost free retreat to our Special Operations Community.

In 2017 we were able to provide six Warrior Healing Retreats. In 2018 we progressed to be able to provide ten retreats. In 2019 we are providing twelve retreats with eight Warrior Healing Retreats and four Couples Healing Retreats. In 2020 we will provided retreats in the first quarter. During the time of Covid-19 our licensed mental health therapists were able to work with previous and future Special Operations Operators by remotely. Through social media we virtually connected with iRest, yoga and meditation sessions. We also distributed reading sites to stimulate and focus energies and thoughts. Lastly, we kept contact with our previous retreat groups by group texts for support. Beginning in March of 2021 we have our full Warrior Healing Program operating in person and have continued with individual therapy sessions for continuity. To date we have over 500 attendees participate in our Warrior Healing Program.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jul 01 - Jun 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
