ABOUT GRATEFUL AMERICANS CHARITY
Our mission is to provide resources that support programs aimed at ending Veteran homelessness and combating the invisible wounds of war.
Since founded in 2016, Grateful Americans Charity has raised more than $1.7 million to serve Veterans. With your help, we can continue to increase donations in 2022 and save even more lives and continue toward a goal of ending Veteran homelessness.
The PTSD Foundation of America (ptsdusa.org) and its Camp Hope facility will again be this year's beneficiary. Camp Hope is a campus providing housing to Veterans while they undergo rebuilding their lives with peer-to-peer support working together to overcome the effects of PTSD. The Foundation also has over 40 Warrior groups around the country, serve serving thousands of combat Veterans and their families every year. Camp Hope continues to provide several much-needed resources and services, including temporary housing and extensive residential PTSD recovery programs. Under the supervision of certified combat trauma mentors, Veterans attend group and one-on-one support programs.
The PTSD crisis continues to increase. After combat Veterans return home, it can take years for the symptoms of the invisible wounds of war to surface and the debilitated effects of PTSD to overwhelm them.
ALARMING VETERAN FACTS - Why we do this:
Each night, 62,000+ Veterans have no home and must fend for themselves on the streets.
20+ Veterans commit suicide every day. Veteran suicides are 2-3 times that of civilians.
Suicide-related Veteran deaths from PTSD surpass combat-related deaths.
25% of 9/11 Veterans battle PTSD, with just as many Veterans are never diagnosed.
Over 400,000 9/11 Veterans have sought treatment for mental illness and PTSD.
Veterans most at risk for PTSD include those with combat exposure, multiple deployments, and/or traumatic brain injury.
Sadly, many of the numbers above may be higher because the data only includes Veterans that report to the VA, and many Veterans with PTSD never contact the VA.
