I have witnessed this mission save lives, first hand. Ran by leaders beyond reproach. Quickly building unconventional support groups for vets with PTSD and suicidial tendencies daily. A great vision to accomplish and many important missiond achieved along the way. Major (Retired) Justin Fitch.
I served with one of these amazing gents and I've been able to see it all grow from the beginning. Active Heroes has constantly grown and adjusted its mission, to the ever growing needs of Vets and their families. They will continue to do amazing things and I hope one day I get to join the effort!
National Sons of AMVETS held a AMVETS Campout September of 2018, at the Active Heroes Retreat,and will hold another Campout this September 2019, we had a great time and we are looking forward to this years Campout. It has been a great partnership with Active Heroes.
The first time I heard of ACTIVE HEROES was on January 2017 when my fellow Zumba instructor, fellow veteran, & friend, Rob, invited me to be part of a Zumbathon Charity Event to raise funds for Active Heroes. Once he told me about the organization, I did not hesitate to say YES even if it means driving several hours to get there. As an Air Force Veteran with PTSD from my 5 deployments and my previous career field, I know the effects of PTSD. although each personal have different experiences, I can somehow relate. We need non-profit orgs like Active Heroes. AH is unique because the services offered are not only for the veterans but also for their family. I’ve also been to the retreat in Louisville, KY to tour and get trained as a volunteer. I’ve attended 4 Zumbathon for Active Heroes events, hosted one in Las Vegas in 2017, & hosting another one in Las Vegas on May 25, 2019. THANK YOU, Active Heroes for all you do!!!
I was introduced to Active Heroes almost 4 years ago through a mutual friend. The amount of dedication and loyalty they have to our servicemembers and veterans is unmatched. Their goal of building a large veterans retreat to help veterans and their families cope with the effects of PTSD is brilliant and effective. Instead of just talking about helping veterans, they are taking tangible action. All of their activities are focused on ending veteran suicide, and I hope they continue to expand and gain traction.
Active Heroes is an AMAZING organization that is helping combat VETERAN PTSD AND SUICIDE. I would highly recommend supporting this organization and believe whole heartedly in what they are doing to make a difference for our community.
This organization does a lot of great things and I'm glad to be able to help them out any way I can.
Active hero's is one of the most down to earth, transparent and wholesome Charity's I have ever seen. All the folks there have true passion for the mission that they are striving to make a reality. I know that when I donate to active hero's, almost all of my money goes to something truly amazing. 22 to 0, a statement that is both heartbreaking and inspiring. I hope this can be achieved some day and have full faith that active hero's can make a real difference for those who make the ultimate sacrifice.
Active Heroes is a great organization. They are doing wonderful things for veterans.
I have a friend that I was extremely worried about. I wanted to be there for him, but I knew that I did not live through the things he had experienced and did not feel I had the knowledge to fully help him. After talking with some other veterans and doing a internet search I found Active Heroes. The staff work very hard to be everything that is needed for the Heroes that have served our country. I have gotten to know Troy, and he has put his heart and soul into creating something that helps our heroes when they need it. Troy and the whole staff go above and beyond what I ever expected to find. This is such a needed and worthy cause. I am overjoyed that an organization like this exists.
Wonderful people helping out our veterans and theirs families. Been involved with Active Heroes for 3-4 years now with my husband. Strong belief in helping others and they have that same belief.
A friend of mine told me about Active Heroes so I checked them out. This is an organization that truly makes a difference by providing programs that help heal those veterans and family members who are suffering. I have since been honored to join this great organization
I have been a team leader in Wichita Kansas and have been involved with Active Heroes for 5 years. Troy has helped me personally so we both make Active Heroes and the events I organize better. I like that Active Heroes keeps their finances in clear public view so I know my work and funds are going to help veterans. I would recommend anyone who is willing to help veterans to get involved with Active Heroes.
I had been following Active Heroes events on Facebook back since 2012/2013, I realized this was the charity group I wanted to support. On one of our family vacations, we decided to drive through their town, stop in and pay them a visit. Meeting with Troy and Mareike that day showed me the compassion and care they have for our Military Men and Womem. They never once showed or displayed any high lifestyle of living through the people's donations. Just a great hearted and caring couple. This proved to me they made sure the funds were allocated to the people in need.
One of our family vacations included, joining in at the Family Retreat to work on clearing the property, trimming trees and building tables. While there, we even had the pleasure of doing a kids room and bathroom makeover for a husband and wife that were both in the National Guard. That in itself was great to see the joy it brought my kids, watching the little boys come home to a newly painted and decorated room.
The people I have met with and worked along side of, are all genuine and kind hearted people. On man especially that stood out, he was a disabled Army Vet and working right along side me at the retreat. That young mans name is Brian, he was an amazing young man with joy in his heart and a smile on his face. He too received a home make over himself funded by Active Heroes. When he realized how they helped him and his lovely bride with their new family, he was elated and humbled. He said it was hard to display or show signs of weakness by asking for help. He then realized Active Heroes is the real deal. Since 2013, I have made a number of donations, I have since included any tips from customers along with matching their contribution.
I have no doubt in my mind and heart that Active Heroes will use my donations appropriately for the bettering and well being of our Men and Women of our Armed Forces.
So for that alone, this is where I will always send my donations.
God Bless Active Heroes and their team for all they do.
God Bless the Men and Women of our Armed Forces.
I love my Active Heroes
This organization is on the forefront every single day reducing the veteran suicide rate. Truly a Noble cause.
I have been a part of Active Heroes now for almost a year and it has truly been a great experience! I signed up as a team leader and have held a Ruck March in my community, actually getting ready to have another! I have witnessed so much good come out of just our Ruck March alone, it has really opened the eyes of just how real PTSD and suicide rates are amount our veterans! My husband is an Iraq war veteran and suffers with PTSD, this program has helped him so much by just being active and helping me and meeting new people and also reuniting with some that he served with! Top notch non-profit and I look forward to many years working with them!
I have been with Active Heroes for quite some time and I absolutely love them. They are truly making a difference with the money raised. I have witnessed the funds being put back into the community and the cause.
Anything we have, we owe it to our vets. They deserve so much more so organizations like this makes a difference.
Active Heroes is a top notch group!! They’ve saved hundreds of lives through the great programs they offer.
AS a mother of a soldier I am so comforted knowing that active heroes is here for my son. As a sister of a soldier I am also comforted knowing that my brother and his wife and child can rely on active heroes. Also as a daughter of a veteran it is comforting to know that my father and our family are illegible to use services provided by active heroes. I myself recently , literally have called in a state of panic and confusion and within minutes was greeted and comforted and given direction for help. It’s amazing the amount of help this extraordinary group of people can offer along with the willingness to help. We are blessed to have Active heroes!
This is one of the few organization truly dedicated to helping our nations veterans. With veteran based leadership they truly know the best way to help.
Been helping raise money and volunteering for Active Heroes for the past 3 years. Always a great organization to work with that does a lot of good and with great plans to do even more.
The work they do for veterans and active military members and their families is incredible.
An excellent charity, I have seen them personally go above and beyond for verterans and their families.
I've been volunteering since they opened the first community center. They are committed to the mission of ending veteran suicide.
Since day one, my family and I have loved this group & try to hrlp them out. They do so much for the Veterans. Every chance we can, we sing the praises for Active Heroes. We donate and ask our friends to donate to this excellent group. We also volunteer every year for their Stand at Attention Competition. Last year we even brought some of the local ROTC students with us. Can not say enough about this group. They ROCK!!!
As a disabled veteran I've received free Crossfit workouts at a local gym and free massages. A huge help!
Active Heroes has done so much for my husband and our family. Our first interaction with Active Heroes started when our family was chosen for a Room makeover. Not only did they finish a room for my husband that would be a man cave/ retreat place for him, but they also took notice that we didn’t have a functioning kitchen and re-did the entire kitchen for us! During that time Active Heroes became family to us. It was great for my Husband to have a verteran community he felt proud to be a part of. We loved helping them fundraise and felt like we could help this charity give to other veterans like they gave to our family. They are always just a phone call away and still help us whenever they can. When I was pregnant with my second child Troy and Mareike Yokum even brought Babies R Us gift cards so I could get what we needed for the baby. They are always checking on us to see how we are doing. They are a true blessing and I’m glad to have Active Heroes in our lives!
A++ non-profit. Very honest and genuine people who are passionate about their cause. After many years of seeing them grow, their community involvement has become second to none. I know that my donations are being used wisely and effectively. If looking for a non-profit to donate too, I highly recommend Active Heroes.
I've been a volunteer for this non-profit for many years. I've seen them turn their donations and in-kind gifts into lifesaving miracles for warriors battling depression and suicidal ideations. They're building a Military Family Retreat complete with life sustaining resources for anyone in a dark place. I wish I could give them a 7 out of 5. Amazing.
I am a disabled veteran, served quite a while. The mentorship, comradery, and the overall feeling of belonging is what this place has done for me.
Was able to volunteer at multiple events with Active Heroes. I love all the work we have been doing to help veterans!
I've been volunteering for years with a variety of places, but this is the first organization I feel like I'm impacting many at once and not just because of one-on-one time! There have been so many veterans of all eras we have helped impact lives for... especially my own!
