Providing supportive therapeutic mental health activities to Active Duty Military, Veterans, First Responders, and their families.
Giving Back is a veteran-founded, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, all volunteer organization dedicated to giving back to our heroes in uniform, both active, and veterans. Located near Martinsville, VA, we provide meaningful supportive cognitive and behavioral therapeutic activities based on proven methods and modalities in the Southern Piedmont region.
Our properties support a wide variety of outdoor individual and family activities, including hunting, fishing, ATV riding, and more. We use these activities to engage with, and foster a peer supporting peer environment. We use our activities as the catalyst to breakdown barriers, and assumptions about mental health therapies and treatment modalities, as well as to communicate our own experiences, failures, and successes to help our heroes find the right resources for their needs.
We partner with other veteran groups and non-profit organizations in order to provide whatever support is required for our clients, and their families to participate fully in our outdoor programs. Our mission is to give back to those who sacrifice so much on our behalf, by providing them with the tools and resources necessary for them to reconnect to the people and world around them.
As an 100% volunteer organization, no one receives financial compensation for any services, and our events are completely free of charge for all of our veteran, and first responders, and their families. Every penny we raise goes directly to supporting our outdoor and therapeutic programs.
