WHO YOU’VE HELPED
Every day, your support reaches into the lives of our Sheep Dogs and helps them make positive changes to reengage in living an active, meaningful & productive life. THANK YOU!
Army Specialist Christopher M. served from 2000-2009 when he was medically retired after suffering severe injuries. Once retired, the military told him to go home and sit on the couch. With nothing to do but dwell on his injuries and his lost purpose & self-worth, Chris became depressed and was hospitalized for suicidal ideations.
After his release, he linked up with SDIA through his Vet Center and went on our snowmobiling trip to Yellowstone National Park. Before the trip, Chris was feeling useless, lost, drained and empty. But while on the trip, he connected with others who had lived through similar traumas, and experienced the camaraderie he’d been missing.
Chris now feels successful, energetic, and happy, and is the Team Leader for our Southern Indiana Team. He deploys on Disaster Response Missions to give back, and goes on Outdoor Adventures to learn how his Team can host their own. During our nation’s health crisis, he has sewn over 800 masks for local first responders and medical. Truly, “Helping is Healing.”
Founded in 2010, Sheep Dog Impact Assistance (SDIA) is a nationally recognized non-profit organization founded and headquartered in Rogers, Arkansas. SDIA exists to engage, assist and empower our nation’s “Sheep Dogs” (Veterans, Law Enforcement, Fire & Rescue, and EMS personnel) to Get Off The Couch™ through our Disaster Response Mission and Outdoor Adventure programs to reengage in living an active, meaningful and productive life.
