On average, 22 veterans end their lives each day. Some veterans suffer from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI). This can impact how they feel every day and become overwhelming. Mission 22 offers a variety of supports to help veterans suffering from PTS, TBI, and feelings of not wanting to be here anymore. Mission 22 offers an endobiogeny program that treats veterans with Post Traumatic Stress with a focus on healing the whole person. They also have hyperbaric-focused treatment for Traumatic Brain Injuries. Treatment options include intensive treatment at a facility or treatment provided remotely. Travel expenses to and from treatment are not covered but Mission 22 covers the cost of treatment at 100%.

Members will be engaged in fundraising activities to support Hope for the Warriors. Specifically, C.A.R. will be supporting A Warrior's Wish; a program with the mission to support severely injured veterans in their transition back to civilian life. A Warrior's Wish honors the sacrifices of our veterans by fulfilling wishes, anything from remodeling a house to be more handi-accessible, purchasing home equipment to help make daily tasks more feasible, or giving startup capital for a veteran?s own program benefiting injured veterans. Our goal is $25,000 raised for A Warrior's Wish.
C.A.R. also has a second, joint goal. One of C.A.R.'s main tenets is service. Members will get into their communities and find ways to help those less fortunate around their neighborhoods. Each society, each dot on a map is an opportunity to make another difference, even in just one person. C.A.R. is committed to serving our communities and honoring the legacies of our patriots in remembrance of their sacrifices and service to our young country. Our members are excited to help our communities and grow as leaders through their own unique service projects. Our goal is to serve 25,000 hours of community service.
