our purpose

Veterans struggle with unique challenges while facing personal and systemic barriers to getting the support they need. This has led to an epidemic of veteran mental health issues. The DoD estimates 456,293 service members were diagnosed with at least one mental health condition between 2016 and 2022.  We engage with this challenge by providing opportunities for veterans to improve their physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing through adventure and service in the outdoors.

about

Send Me Outdoors is a veteran focused 501c3 non-profit organization.

 

Throughout the Special Operations community, the phrase “Send Me” invokes a special passion. It originates from a biblical prophet, who, when hearing of a need, responded
 

“Here am I. Send me!”
 

Throughout their military careers service members say: “Send Me!” over and over again, whether for deployments, training, or moving across the world. Although they normally return, sometimes they do not – at least not entirely. They leave remnants of their minds and bodies around the world in both a literal and physical sense. Service members are now retiring after twenty years of service, all of which was spent on a wartime footing. We are exhausted physically and mentally, yet still when the opportunity arises, we are the first to say, “Send Me!”

The mission of Send Me Outdoors is to provide opportunities for military and first responders veterans and their families to develop strong social connections while enhancing their social, physical, mental, and emotional well-being through acts of service and activities in an outdoor setting. Our members know firsthand how important it is to stay connected and active through service and outdoor adventure. We work together to do better and be better.

Many veterans struggle with finding purpose in their post-military lives, and we believe SMO and partner organizations can help bridge these gaps. Veterans face many challenges, and we know from experience that the best solution to those problems often comes from a peer or mentor who has “been there and done that.” Our initiatives give those who have served opportunities to rest, communicate, develop trusting relationships, and build camaraderie with both fellow SMO members and the community.

"RALLY AT THE CAMPFIRE!" and see what we are all about!
