Mission 22 has three major programs. Funding veterans to receive treatment for Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they may be facing through Mission 22 Programs as well as many partner organizations, large scale public art to honor veterans and creating impact in communities for the issues veterans are facing today.
There are memorials dedicated to the fallen warriors of nearly every major conflict in our country’s history. They remind us of the sacrifice, they honor those we’ve lost, and they tie civilian to soldier. But there was no national monument for those who have fallen in the war against Veteran suicide until the War at Home Memorial was created.
With your support, we were able to build one. We raised a monument—and awareness. We are working with community leaders in locations like Norfolk, Washington DC and New York City to create a permanent exhibit to pay tribute to those we have lost here at home.
The last year our goals for awareness have not only been met but far surpassed what we could have even hoped for. The Mission 22 campaign has brought veteran issues to millions of people so that they too can make a difference. Awareness precedes change and without it we can not heal our nation.
WAR AT HOME MEMORIAL
The monument construction has been completed. We honored 20 veterans who lost their lives here at home after serving our country abroad. Please see the Memorial page for photos and to follow progress of the monument as it travels around the United States. Its next location is set for Norfolk, Virginia and we are working on a semi-permanent location for it after that. For more info on the memorial please click here.
VETERAN TREAMENT PROGRAMS
Mission 22 has comprehensive programs to treat veterans suffering from PTS and TBI. We also have partnered with other organizations that offer amazing services to veterans as well as doctors and treatment facilities across the country. The VA is a great resource but they are understaffed and underfunded. With your help we can get our veterans the help they need now, without the wait. Our partner organizations specialize in Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, substance abuse and all of the issues veterans are facing today.
