Active Heroes is a great organization that is really trying to have an impact on the epidemic suicide rate among veterans. Not only do they have the military and veteran family retreat, and they also have a lot of other programs that assist veterans. They do carry the following events, House repairs, scholarship programs, massage, acupuncture, dog training and many other programs that assist .

Active Heroes is one of the strongest, most focused charities I have ever been involved or heard of that supports our Veterans. Being a disabled Veteran myself, it means a lot that this organization is willing to do what is necessary to help Veterans and their families and value each and every Veterans' lives. The individuals that join our military and put their lives on the line every day to provide us with freedom and safety need to be honored and supported in whatever way necessary during their service to us and after it has been completed. Active Heroes takes this responsibility seriously.

One of the best organizations in the fight to end veteran suicide. From Retreat Centers, to physical activities to free massage, acupuncture and many other holistic options. Very proud of the accomplishments.

This is a wonderful organization dedicated to fight the epidemic of PTSD among our brave vet's. That is their total goal which is wonderful since our vet's are so in need since 22 a day are killing themselves. They are so honest and hard working. I hope everyone who reads this will go to their website and see for themselves the wonderful work Active Heroes is achieving for our brave men and women.

Active Heroes has provided wonderful programs for my military family to enjoy together at no cost to us. The staff is very friendly and they help to create a comfortable atmosphere for everyone that walks through the door at the community center. The retreat is beautiful and will serve many people when it's finished. I can't wait to see what the future brings at Active Heroes. The number of people they have directly impacted as a young organization is simply amazing.

Active Heroes is a 501.c.3 corporation that publicly exposes their finances in plain view for anyone with concerns about where money is being spent.

They have helped save the lives of many veterans and their families.

The organization is actively engaged nationwide and is benefiting mental health care greatly where needed.

I have made it a life mission to help them succeed.

They have raised a considerable amount of money but have nothing to show for it. They have supposedly been "clearing" brush and trash off of the retreat for almost 2 years! They did get new offices though and the founders bibought a new home. VERY IMPORTANT.

With all of the money donated and all of the corporate sponsorship, they should have something built by now. I just wonder where all of the money has truly gone.

We're sorry you feel this way however there is a lot that have been accomplished at the retreat. The first two pergolas have been built, the children's playground has got it's first section built, lots of equipment purchased for maintenance, 30% of the 144 acres have been cleared, two large statues have been built, roads plans have been finalized, a partnership with the National Guard has been approved, several camping dates have been hosted and over 650 veterans visited and camped at the retreat in it's first year. Also the retreat has just opened for the first time for 3 days a week after a long winter, so projects are just beginning for 2015. We have a lot in store for this year. Furthermore the retreat was purchased on November 11th 2013. That would make the program only 17 months old.

My son and I tackled the 2,185-mile Appalachian Trail in 2014 to raise money for this awesome charity. They spend their money on the vets, not celebrity endorsements. There's not a better veteran's charity out there. Donate today!

This amazing organization has repeatedly gone above and beyond expectations when it comes to their service and dedication to military/veterans and their families. There are so many other groups that SAY they are going to do something, and this outstanding group of individuals DO what they say they're going to do. I daily tell veterans that I run across to check them out and to utilize all they have to offer.

It has been an honor and a blessing to be a volunteer for this organization. What an incredible group of caring, loving people. They have taught me so much... I had no idea there were so many deaths every single day from PTSD... it's staggering. These people give all and then some to make a difference in the lives of our Military and Veterans. With Active Heroes... it's about people taking care of people... being there when someone needs it most. The kind of people that remind you... there is still GOOD in the world!

Im a US Army Veteran that has been working with the great folks at Active Heroes for over a year now. Their passion and dedication to Veterans and the families of Veterans is unparalleled. Their assault on the Veteran suicide epidemic with events like Carry the Fallen and Hike for Heroes can only be described as inspirational. What they do and have done is second to none. Thank you Active Heroes for your selfless sacrifice to the Veterans of our great country.

I had the pleasure of meeting Troy a few years ago when it was a simple idea of walking across the country and it was called Hike For Heroes. I even had the honor of putting together a pancake breakfast to raise money and meeting Mareika, Emmett and Harley. I also was able to help with the Barefoot Walk in Phoenix. Not sure I could meet a more dedicated and honorable person and team.

My son is in the National Guards. His two children recently won a room makeover from the Active Heroes. The reveal will be in the next week. What a wonderful thing to do for our soldiers and their families. He wants to pay it forward by helping in the Active Heroes.

Active Heroes is an amazing organization with the most important mission of working with active military, veterans, and families. They provide help and support in the areas of integration and coping skills; physical and mental health issues; as well as promoting awareness of veterans' issues such as suicide. At least 22 veterans commit suicide each day and that must end! Active Heroes plays an active role in trying to reverse this horrific trend by raising awareness and funds to help those veterans and families in need.

Active Heroes has partnered with Sullivan University to design over a dozen unique seminars for military families at the Active Heroes Retreat. The Seminars are sixty to ninety minute discussions including skill developments such as resume building, conflict management, budgeting and business management. This partnership produced a successful Resilience Training for members of the Kentucky National Guard a few months back and it was the beginning of some great things to come. Without a doubt, this non-profit has a positive impact in our community. Thank you so much for supporting the troops Active Heroes!

This organization has opened my eyes to something I never knew about. I never knew that 22 veterans commit suicide everyday. I have had the opportunity to volunteer a couple times to help raise money for them. I enjoyed the 2 times I have been able to help give back. Every one needs to know about this organization. I don't trust alot of charities but I truly believe in Active Heroes. I love giving back to those who have given me my freedom. I've even had daughters and boyfriend volunteer for them and I will continue to volunteer as long as I can.

The things this organization does to help volunteers is above abd beyond reproach. I've witnessed them go out of their way numerous times to ensure that veterans needs are taking care of. What's more, they include veterans of EVERY campaign or conflict, as well as THE FAMILIES of these veterans. They understand that the family suffers and is affected just as much as the veteran.

I am the mother of an active American soldier, a sister of an active American soldier, the daughter , grand daughter, niece, cousin, and friend of American soldiers. I have had the honor of working with this amazing organization. People who selflessly give their time and energy to help families of the military. These are the people that I know if MY FAMILY, were to need guidance and help, would come thru. I've never met a more dedicated and compassionate group of people willing to help our soldiers, veterans and their families.I am so proud to say I am involved with Active Heros! God Bless each person affiliated!!

I've seen firsthand the difference Active Heroes is making in the community, on the Veteran suicide epidemic battleground, and in the personal lives of Service Members and their families. Active Heroes is the classiest of class act organizations with amazing volunteers and leadership that epitomizes Selfless-Service. Definitely worthy of support and financial contributions. Donate time, money, and/or energy with a peace of mind that you ARE helping to make the world of our Service Members, Veterans and Families a better place to be.

I have always been someone who gives when I can, but very careful in who I choose to give to. A couple years ago, via my business, I partnered with Active Heroes to provide a product and successfully helped raise funds for them. This organization has an incredible team and has so many qualities that larger organizations lack. The founders are personally involved. They aren't desk jockeys with enormous salaries. I am proud to have helped Active Heroes and I encourage others to support them as well.
