THE STORY:

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

The Arms Forces provides a caring heart and a listening ear that helps educate, empower and facilitate change for military members and veterans who have a traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress resulting in better outcomes for their lives.

WHO WE ARE and WHY WE EXIST

The Arms Forces is a nonprofit organization that embraces the unique needs of veterans who have a traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress. We develop and maintain a network of trained volunteer Life Navigation Coaches who give individual assistance to our wounded warriors who have the invisible wounds of war, at no cost to the veteran. We provide support to families and loved ones through our LEEF Support Experience (Lifting up, Educating, Empowering Families). We bring about change in the stigma attached to such injuries by raising the consciousness of citizens as to what TBI and PTS are and what they are not, through educational presentations, speeches and organizational culture.

The Arms Forces Founder, Pam Hays, is a severe traumatic brain injury survivor. She not only understood the gap in services that existed for civilians, but found that there was a critical gap in services for military veterans with invisible wounds. Through research, observation and assessing the current system of supports and services that exist for our veterans, it became clear to her that those whose injuries did not require higher levels of medical care were falling through the cracks when it came to services that adequately met a veteran’s needs.

The Arms Forces has found a way to bridge the gap in service delivery, as well as provide support resources for invisibly wounded veterans and their families, and to be a provider of “real life information” training for individuals, organizations, nonprofit, social service, and government agencies so they can better serve veterans.
