Who We Are
The Mighty Oaks Foundation is a faith-based Veteran service organization that teaches combat Veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress how to get beyond combat trauma and live their lives in the manner God intended. Many combat vets are unable to reintegrate back into civilian life, leaving their families to deal with the aftermath of broken homes and suicide at times. By aligning their lives to Biblical principles, these Warriors are able to lead their families, their communities and our nation. Our mission is to serve and restore our nation’s Warriors and families, who have endured hardship through their service to America, and to help them find a new life purpose through hope in Christ and our resiliency and peer-to-peer recovery programs.
After 18 years in the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, more than half of the 2 million Veterans struggle with physical and mental health problems stemming from their service. Every day in America 20 Veterans commit suicide according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. The V.A. Hotline receives an average of 400 calls per day. At the same time, the divorce rate among active military personnel and returning Veterans is staggering, impacting Veterans, and their families.
Our purpose is to heal the brokenhearted by addressing the spiritual injury of combat trauma and to reverse its effects in these families that have already sacrificed so much for our nation. After more than 2,000 alumni have participated in our programs, we have and maintain one of the highest success rates of any recovery program in preventing veteran suicide and divorce. In fact, our programs are so successful that we receive hundreds of active duty military on official orders each year.
