22 Veterans Lost To Suicide!

Though it's a harsh reality, that Brave Veterans are lost to the tragedy of suicide. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the Veterans Administration and organizations such as The Long Walk Home, this number has decreased, marking a positive step forward. Yet, our unwavering mission continues until we achieve our ultimate goal: ZERO Veteran suicides.
Together, let's keep striving for a future where our heroes no longer face this heartbreaking outcome.

The Long Walk Home is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps Veterans and their families have a safe, productive, and healthy transition to civilian life. We do this by providing programs and resources that are proven to improve lives and reduce suicidality. Our 10 Challenges to Service Program - pairs Veterans and their loved ones with one of our Mentors, who guides them along a series of personal challenges designed to heal, motivate, and engage individuals. Of those who complete all 10 challenges, 74% choose to remain within the program by becoming a Mentor. All of our Mentors have gone through the program themselves, giving them insight into the obstacles that Veterans may face as they engage in the difficult introspection that the challenges demand. On average, participants report improvements in their stress management, sense of purpose, work/life balance, and even sleep.

As an additional resource, our organization frequently hosts ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) workshops, which are a proven method of reducing suicide. ASIST is taught by experienced professionals and gives trainees the skills they need to intervene and provide assistance when someone they know is at risk of suicide. In helping someone who is suicidal, participants of ASIST see their confidence raise from 35% to 100%, on average.

A price cannot be placed on the life on another human being, so The Long Walk Home is proud to be able to offer these services to Veterans at no charge and a very small fee to their families. In order to provide our services, we rely on the generosity and kindness of others. Our donors share our passion for assisting Veterans and reducing suicidality, making all of what we do a possibility. Based on 1000 people, per year, taking our 10 Challenges to Service Mentorship Program, it costs our organization $110 per person. Our ASIST (suicide intervention program) 2 day workshops costs us $350 per person, which is based on 20 participants in each class. We understand that everyone's economic situation is different, so we ask that you only give what you can afford.

Gifts of all sizes are equally appreciated, as each is a reminder that Veterans and their families have not been forgotten.
