Community Need:

The veterans outreach portion of our organization, assists veterans who may be experiencing a hard time with PTSD or Anxiety. Our organization uses a non-convetional method through the use of Scuba Diving and Equestrian Therapy. We also give active duty service members and veterans support with a wide variety of resources through our network of partners. Interns will assist by giving support to the Diving Devil Dogs staff.

The Community Service portion assists ASU Project Humaities in collecting, sorting and distributing clothing to the homeless population of Phoenix. This event is held every other Saturday. Interns will be asked to assist with emails and phone calls assisting to ensure that Service Saturdays can be held every two weeks.

Community Impact:

Interns will be ble to experience the transformation in veterans who attend our events. Veterans who have attended past events have stated they have experienced a new way to cope with their everyday events. Many of the veterans have come back to our organization wanting to help and to spread the word about what we do. 

Through our community service initiatives, we have been able help the less fortunate by suppling clothing, shoes, toilettes and other items that can help make them more comfortable.
