“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”
One of America’s top veteran non-profit organizations, the Mighty Oaks Foundation, has just announced their National Training Center’s grand opening. This is certain to be a great help in the difficult fight against the sad active duty and veterans’ suicide epidemic.
Using the latest peer-to-peer recovery methods, the organization’s Warrior Programs confront the fundamental issues which countless American service men and women struggle with day in, and day out. On another positive note, when it comes to treating post traumatic stress, Mighty Oaks has one of the country’s greatest success rates.
Murrieta, CA, is the home to the brand new HQ and National Training Center. This dedicated space will empower the foundation to train new program leaders, grow their media platform, expand awareness, and manage their organizational operations more efficiently. The building will also offer classrooms and conference rooms which can be utilized for regional Mighty Oaks Outpost meetings, training sessions, and local meetings. This satisfies the charity’s aim of broadening their capacity and reach for the purpose of giving healing and hope to the veterans who have been through more than most people could possibly imagine.
This exciting launch is set for June 10th, and will incorporate a big welcome to all who attend and watch the video, from well known media and military personalities, as well as a dedication address from Lt. Col. Allen West. This event will be an excellent chance to meet the organization’s leadership and staff, and give people the opportunity to see how Mighty Oaks can serve as both a regional and national resource.
About Mighty Oaks Foundation
The US Department of Veteran Affairs states that: “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”. Moreover, a large number of combat vets are not able to reintegrate back into civilian society, thereby leaving their families bereft of a normal life. These are very alarming figures indeed, and just highlights the fact that far too little has been done by successive governments to ameliorate this situation.
At the time of writing, Might Oaks has had more than 2,500 Legacy Program graduates. This number comprises in excess of 2,500 veterans, military personnel, first responders and spouses, all of which are given a renewed purpose in life through healing and hope. On top of this, the organization has reached out to more than 100,000 men and women at resiliency events in different parts of the world, and given away more than 80,000 copies of their very helpful inspiring books.
