Who We Are
Founded in 2010, Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA) is a non-profit organization made up of military, law enforcement, fire & rescue, and EMS professionals – society’s protectors, our “Sheep Dogs” – and volunteers. We exist to engage, assist and empower our fellow Sheep Dogs with continued service opportunities and provide the camaraderie that may be missing after a shift or tour of duty ends.
Our national office is in Rogers, Arkansas. We currently have 19 chapters and teams across the US, one in Canada, and more than 4,000 members, volunteers and supporters nationwide.

What We Do
SDIA offers Sheep Dogs and like-minded volunteers continued service opportunities to satisfy their innate desire to serve and help those around them.
Our primary focus is to provide “impact assistance” to communities through Disaster Response Missions; these missions are what SDIA was founded on.
Our secondary focus is to offer Sheep Dogs the camaraderie they may be missing through our Outdoor Adventures program. This program benefits our Sheep Dogs who’ve been injured in combat or the line of duty by getting them up off the couch and reengaged in living a positive, active lifestyle.
