Our flagship program is what we call "Hotrod Therapy," which teaches veterans the skills and techniques to rebuild an old beat up motorcycle and create the bike of their dreams. Through this distractive therapy veterans also get to work through their problems and end up "rebuilding" themselves as well. We have seen some great men and women go through incredible changes in this program. The veteran then gets to keep their project at no cost, and they usually end up sticking around to help mentor the next veteran through the process.
While we are most known for our Hotrod Therapy program, we offer a variety of programs to improve the lives of veterans that served their country. The "On Your Feet" program helps veterans going through hard times. Our weekly veteran peer support group "Lima Charlie" meets every Thursday and gives veterans a safe space to workshop their problems with like-minded individuals who have been through similar experiences. Our F.A.T. Program, or "Fitness and Tranquility" helps veterans to live a healthy, active, and peaceful lifestyle, which can be an adjustment to some. Just to name a few.
100% of your donation goes to helping veterans, whether that be a part for their motorcycle build, getting them a safe ride to work in the morning, or enabaling them to make positive impact in their community.
We dont believe in "raising awareness." People are aware. We are making a positive impact.
