What We Do

Eagle Rock Camp is a family saving, suicide prevention organization that serves at-risk veteran and military families. We host our families at week long, therapeutic retreats that help them reconnect with their families and communities, and teach them a new way to heal from the moral and spiritual wounds of war.

We make miracles happen. Sometimes they happen around a campfire.

IMPACT OF COVID 19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

HOW WE ARE IMPACTED: Veteran and military families are already at a 150% higher risk of death by suicide than civilian counterparts. Combine that with isolation, fear, uncertainty about the future you have an increase in mental health issues, financial stress, family abuse, family abuse, drug and alcohol abuse, neglect of children, financial stress and a higher than normal risk of death by suicide. All our fundraising events have been cancelled through July, reducing our capacity to deliver family and life saving therapeutic retreats for our veterans and their families.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Financial Donations: Make a one time gift or join our Hero Club for as little as $4.95. (Click on the GIVE button) https://eaglerockcamp.org/

SPECIFIC VOLUNTEER NEEDS:
Here's how we will keep volunteers safe during the quarantine: These positions will not interact directly with those we serve. You may work virtually.

Grant researcher - With more and more grants opening up for Covid 19 relief, we need help sorting through the information.

Program delivery - We are revamping our program delivery and need additional expertise to help design new ways to reach our veteran families. With sudden changes in how we are able to interact with our constituents, we are seeking out ways to deliver in a virtual environment. Expertise in this field is greatly needed to help keep our veteran families safe.

Marketing - design, produce and deliver messaging about our brand and how we are addressing Covid-19.

Marketing - video production. We need 12 short videos, approximately 15-30 seconds each.
