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.
