Our Mission - #GetOffTheCouch

Disaster Response Missions

This is what SDIA was founded on, and continues to be our primary continued service opportunity. When a natural disaster strikes, teams of skilled Sheep Dogs and other volunteers are deployed to provide immediate “impact assistance” to devastated communities.

Teams provide help through tree and debris removal, muck-out operations, covering roofs & windows, distributing food & water, and other meaningful tasks.

Outdoor Adventures

Disasters are not on a schedule, so we looked for other ways to keep our Sheep Dogs engaged each month – opportunities that would provide them with new challenges and foster camaraderie.

The Outdoor Adventures program accomplishes this, and includes hunting & fishing trips, obstacle course races, skydiving and scuba diving. For our sponsored Sheep Dogs (those injured in combat or the line of duty), these adventures present them with challenges that test their rehabilitation progress, restore independence and self-confidence, and reengage them in living life to the fullest. These opportunities for camaraderie and peer support are vital to inspiring a positive state of mind and perspective.

Do you know of a Sheep Dog in need of assistance?

Love the camp

#SDIA's #OutdoorAdventure to New York City was phenomenal! We appeared on Fox & Friends, finished the Tunnel to Towers Foundation 5K, toured the Statue of Liberty National Monument, Ellis Island, Freedom Tower and so much more. Read the story (sheepdogia.org/sdias-trip-to-nyc-brings-healing-camaraderie-to-80-veterans-first-responders/) and view a few of our favorite images from the trip (www.facebook.com/pg/SheepDogIA/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2471530012883556).
