10 Can Outdoors

Do you believe there’s a cure for PTSD? Neither did we. Until recently, Post-Traumatic Stress was considered the most complex phenomena of the mind. Treatment plans reflected this belief, with overly complex formulas and high doses of medication(s). But the continuous rise in warrior suicides prompted innovative change. In such, 10 CAN was born. 10 CAN, Inc. is the Christian Adventure Network founded by a wounded warrior to serve military and first responder families. We are a nonprofit 501(c) (3) charitable organization designed to save heroes, raise the next generation of warriors, and restore families through the great outdoors. Our focus on outdoor recreation, education, and rehabilitation fosters healing, prevents suicides, and builds community. Our faith-based approach is non-religious and encompasses a fit-to-fight model for the entire family. Spiritual well-being, mental health, and physical abilities establish a diverse and well-rounded approach for our Heroes and their families. Our simplified solution with dynamic resolve has a 100% success rate in suicide prevention. In his book Saving Heroes, Dr. Burke provides the formula to the working cure. You’ll note that treating the variety of traumatic stresses requires a fitted approach for each warrior. With childhood roots and nature being the main ingredients, it’s imperative that we aim to be proactive in medicine.

Culinary Arts Boot Camp for Veterans

Culinary Arts Boot Camp for Veterans is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the veteran community by providing both camaraderie and job training to those veterans facing homelessness, unemployment, and who struggle with transitioning into civilian life. Culinary Arts Boot Camp for Veterans is an intensive eleven-week culinary arts program that will prepare participants with the necessary skills to enter the restaurant industry and find employment as a line cook or prep cook. As part of the program, participants will also work with Full Battle Rattle Deli (veteran-owned and -operated) as part of their training and gain the knowledge and skills to work in the foodservice industry. Full Battle Rattle Deli and Culinary Arts Boot Camp for Veterans are two separate entities that work together to support veterans with not only theory and instruction, but an opportunity to gain hands-on experience. In addition to Culinary Arts training, participants will attend classes to support them with job readiness skills to successfully enter the work force and maintain employment. Education and job training are just one facet of this program. An obstacle facing a veteran who is homeless is housing, resources needed to complete this program, classroom materials and support to find gainful employment. Taking a holistic approach, Culinary Arts Boot Camp for Veterans has partnered with community organizations to address this and provide everything the veteran will need to successfully complete this program and reintegrate into our community.

Home Base Program

Home Base launched a series of educational, mind-body courses called Resilient Warrior that help veterans manage their stress more effectively. Resilient Warrior is a mind-body program developed by Home Base in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine (BHI). The fundamental principle of this program is that while people may not be able to control stressful events, they can learn to control their response to stress and, in turn, improve their ability to adapt more effectively to stress (or build resilience). At Home Base, we believe that when one Family member serves, the entire Family serves. Recognizing deployment and reintegration affect Families across three generations, our clinical care is available to spouses and partners, dependent children, parents, siblings, and close friends of those who have served, even when that Veteran or Service Member is not in treatment him or herself. Home Base has launched Resilient Family, a series of free courses designed to reduce the impact of stress on Military Families through a variety of mind-body techniques, as well as skill-building exercises scientifically shown to improve medical symptoms, mood, and well-being. The program was developed by Home Base in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital’s Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine (BHI).

PHWFF is unique in that our volunteers are teaching classes on an on-going, long-term basis. It is much more than a one day fishing trip. For many participants, the socialization and camaraderie of the classes are just as important as the fishing outings. PHWFF relies on Fly Fishers International, Trout Unlimited, and independent fly fishing clubs to conduct the program at the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs facilities across the nation. PHWFF volunteers include experienced fly fishers and guides, all of whom donate their time and knowledge to conduct programs at Department of Defense facilities, Warrior Transition Units and Department of Veterans Affairs facilities nationwide.

Victory Service Dogs

HOW IT ALL STARTED In 2015, Army veteran Steve Corey was moved to action in response to the tragically high suicide rates in the veteran community. He knew the difference a service dog could make in the life of an individual and had seen them recommended to those who were re-entering civilian life following their service. The problem was, most service dog organizations had years-long wait lists, extensive requirements and unaffordable plans for someone on a fixed income. In an effort to combat these issues, Victory Service Dogs was born. Steve knew it had to be affordable, which is why the training we offer to our qualified clients is completely free. He also wanted to create a hands-on program that would include our clients in the training process. Through weekly classes with a professional dog trainer, clients and their service dog candidate learn basic and advanced obedience to prepare the dogs for service work specific to their handler’s needs. These veteran-dog teams go through certified training together, increasing their bond while offering access to a safe and encouraging community that fosters camaraderie and friendship. WHERE WE ARE NOW Through the generosity of our sponsors and donations, we have been able to help over 100 individuals and graduate more than 50 veteran-service dog teams from our training program to date. Our clients are thriving; returning to school, finding and keeping jobs, experiencing healthy engagement with family and increased independence in their personal lives. This is why we exist! The need in our community is far from being fully met, but we have no plans to stop now! Our hope is to start up our very own children’s program, Victory Kids, in order to provide service dog training for children with special needs. We are excited about our future and will continue to work hard to support our community!

Warfighter Scuba

COPING WITH PTSD OR A TRAUMATIC COMBAT INJURY IS NO EASY FEAT In the United States 22 Veterans commit suicide every day. That is a horrible number, considering more Veterans have committed suicide than have been Killed in Action in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. We are here to try and put not only a change to that number, but to stop it all together. Veterans can find an amazing amount of therapy just by venturing underwater. Those seeking adrenaline can also get their fill underwater. Scuba diving is a very incredible sport that can be done worldwide, by anyone, with any “limitations” they may feel they have. We offer an entire program, in the Caribbean, in some of the most sought-after dive conditions on the planet, to not only take Purple Heart recipients with PTSD or physical wounds scuba diving, but certify them so they can go Scuba all over the world! Obviously there is a cost to this and to provide this amazing experience to as many Veterans as we can, we need your help! We are a 501(c)(3) organization that runs off of your donations. If you feel kind enough to share your love of Scuba diving with a wounded Veteran, please help us by donating. VETERANS FROM ALL NATO COUNTRIES We don’t just offer this service to US Veterans. After all there were other countries providing troops for the fight in Iraq and Afghanistan. We offer this therapeutic experience to all wounded Veterans of NATO countries that have received the equivalent of a Purple Heart.
