BENEFITING: Zero Hour Expeditions Inc
ZERO HOUR: A time when a vital decision or decisive change must be made
EXPEDITIONS: A journey especially by a group of people for a specific purpose (such as to explore a distant place or to do research)
To eliminate the physiological factors adversely affecting the minds ability to process post traumatic stress, through nutrition, prolonged wilderness exposure and proven holistic treatments.
Who We Are:
Zero Hour Expeditions is a program founded one night, by a Combat Veteran, 3 years ago, in a garage, standing on a crate, with a rope over a rafter, and a snug noose around a neck. That was our founders ZERO HOUR. 3 years later in April of 2015, Zero Hour Expeditions was born. A 30 day Wilderness Therapy program, designed to help Combat Veterans dealing with PTSD and Moral Injury.
Our organization was created in direct response to the growing number of Veteran Suicides and need for an effective program capable of helping Veterans from a Veterans Perspective. Warriors Healing Warriors.
Our vision is to take Veterans out of their comfort zone and place them into a safe, secure, caring environment, free of triggers and coping mechanism. This promotes their best efforts to heal and reinforces personal resiliency skills, decompression, and the body to naturally heal its self.
Through repeated deployment, constant stress on the body and mind, sleep deprivation, high consumption of nicotine, caffeine, stimulants, poor air quality, exposure to biological factors, and poor nutrition, veterans bodies have been as traumatized as their minds.
Our vision is treating the whole body, not just the mind. This is done by taking into account how the body is physiologically broken down, while at war and its affect on the brain. If we can reduce the negative effects of the body on the mind, we can deal with a pure form of mental trauma.
By providing therapy with proven holistic methods, combined with proper nutrition in a wilderness environment, we can build the habits to sustain healthy lifestyles. This will effectively improve the lives of our fellow Veterans, and the community in which they live and thrive.
Our goal is $150,000. This amount will not only cover the cost of our first 30 Day pilot program, but help us build a website and the get materials need to reach more veterans. With your help, we can give peace back to those who willingly gave theirs up, in defense of our nation.
Thank you, God Bless and Semper Fidelis,
Zero Hour Expeditions.
