Mighty Oaks Foundation

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.

THE CHALLENGE

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. According to the Department of Veteran Affairs, every day in America, over twenty veterans commit suicide. The V.A. Hotline receives an average of 400 calls per day. 2018 marked the highest military active duty suicide rate in 10 years. At the same time, the divorce rate among active military personnel and returning Veterans is staggering, impacting Veterans, as well as their families. Many combat vets are unable to reintegrate back into civilian life leaving their families to work through the aftermath.

THE SOLUTION

For our Warriors who are struggling, the Mighty Oaks journey begins with our intensive peer-based Legacy Program. Through instruction, life-skill projects and team building, we challenge our Warriors to overcome their past experiences and move forward into a life of purpose. After more than 3,300 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. Additionally, through a proactive effort, Mighty Oaks has provided Resiliency Programs to over 150,000 active duty troops on military bases worldwide.
