Our Mission

Improving the Lives of Our Nation's Veterans and First Responders in Need by Helping Them Get Off The Couch™ and Reengage in Living an Active, Meaningful & Productive Life Through Our Outdoor Adventures and Disaster Response Mission Programs.

The US Department of Veterans Affairs states that more than 6,000 Veterans die by suicide each year, and other statistics show that twice as many First Responders die by suicide than in the line of duty.

By gathering together Sheep Dogs who have suffered similar traumas & experiences, SDIA has found that the camaraderie and peer support they receive fosters healing and is critical to their overall well-being. When Sheep Dogs #GetOffTheCouch™, their attitude, motivation and perspective are drastically improved. Your generous support allows SDIA to ENGAGE, ASSIST & EMPOWER our nation’s heroes to Get Off The Couch™ with their brothers & sisters, which prevents suicides in our Veteran and First Responder communities.

SDIA is holding Outdoor Adventures in Northwest Arkansas every other week to help these Sheep Dogs feel the camaraderie and connection to get through these hard times and the hard times they will experience in the future.

We all struggle. Where we have a choice is whether we will just struggle or #StruggleWell.
