Series: Veterans In The News | Story 56

At Mission 22, our commitment could not be more personal. Mission 22 was founded by Veterans. Most of our staff are Veterans, spouses of Veterans, or have immediate family members who have served in the US military.

We provide extensive, personalized support and resources to help Veterans and their families thrive. Mission 22's programs for Veterans and military spouses offer everything from biometric monitoring of stress, sleep, and activity levels; to meditation and coaching; to exercise programs and a wellness supplement regimen; to books and learning resources to help Veterans put their experience in context.

A Family's Experience

Mission 22 recognizes that a Veteran's experience is a family's experience – families live through all of the ups and downs that soldiers returning home do. We've developed a support program exclusively for spouses to take positive steps that renew their identities as individuals and the strengths they bring to their household.

Our Ambassador program further supports Veterans and military families – a network of more than 3,500 Veterans and civilians in all 50 states and around the world. We work to advance society's collective understanding of the issues faced by active service members, Veterans, and their families.

Rising To A Challenge

At Mission 22, we know firsthand that Veterans and service members bring extensive skills and assets to any situation. Their leadership capabilities, experiences, and sense of teamwork and integrity are unmatched. Veterans know how to rise to a challenge.

America's Veterans make our society stronger. They deserve a community worthy of all they have given, and all they will yet achieve. We are proud to continue designing programs for Veterans and their families, and to welcome them into our community.

Our Mission

Mission 22 is a national community supporting active service members, Veterans, and their family members, through three areas of focus:

Support And Treatment Programs

For active service members, Veterans, and their family members, addressing Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, suicide risk and other challenges.

Social Impact

Uniting civilians and the military community to raise awareness of issues active service members, veterans, and their family members face.


Remembering and honoring service members and Veterans through large scale installations and digital initiatives, while raising awareness for issues faced on home soil.

Through this largely volunteer effort, we continue to make a national impact, and our community is growing every day. We are proud to lead this mission supporting our military, Veterans, and their families.

Help When You Need It Most

Our mission eliminates the wait times often experienced by Veterans seeking treatment, and provides help when they need it most: right now. Our programs for Veterans are effective, and provide long-term help and healing for those dealing with post-traumatic stress (PTS), traumatic brain injury (TBI), or military sexual trauma (MST). Our comprehensive program offerings, from Recovery + Resiliency to Amare Wellness, get to the core of persistent issues and help Veterans overcome personal challenges.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution. If you have effective ideas you'd like to share, let us know.
