OUR MANDATES, OUR MISSIONS

VETERAN'S CRISIS LINE

1-800-273-8255

OUR MISSION:

The Seawolf Brewery Veteran's Foundation will work with other Veteran outreach groups to assist individual at-risk Veterans and to bring awareness of these very import issues to the American Military and Civilian populations. We will donate a portion of the proceeds from our beer and merchandise sales to assist Veteran's and other Veteran Assistance organizations. We will supplement the Foundation's resources by holding major events and fundraisers at our brewery locations, our taproom locations, and in communities throughout the USA. But we're not stopping there. Our Foundation will be a 501c4. We want to not only donate much needed monetary funding, we want to deploy an actual "boots-on-the-ground" Team of professionals to assist Veteran's on an individual basis and lift them up and out of the dire situations they find themselves in. Our Team will also collaborate with Local, State, and Federal elected officials and organizations to assist with and promote legislative initiatives that will help our Veterans succeed as they transition out of service and into civilian life.    

Not one Veteran should be homeless and

on the streets in the United States of America.

The Seawolf Brewery Foundation will focus on this horrifying issue. 

America’s homeless veterans have served in World War II, the Korean War, Cold War, Vietnam War, Grenada, Panama, Lebanon, Persian Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq (OEF/OIF), and the military’s anti-drug cultivation efforts in South America. Nearly half of homeless veterans served during the Vietnam era. Two-thirds served our country for at least three years, and one-third were stationed in a war zone.
About 1.4 million other veterans, meanwhile, are considered at risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks, and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.

According to VA statistics, 17 Veterans die from suicide each day in the United States of America. Veteran suicide prevention is a top priority.

2019 National Veteran Suicide Prevention Report:   

  • The number of Veteran suicides exceeded 6,000 each year from 2008 to 2017.
  •  Among U.S. adults, the average number of suicides per day rose from 86.6 in 2005 to 124.4 in 2017. These numbers included 15.9 Veteran suicides per day in 2005 and 16.8 in 2017.
  •  In 2017, the suicide rate for Veterans was 1.5 times the rate for non-Veteran adults, after adjusting for population differences in age and sex.
  • Firearms were the method of suicide in 70.7% of male Veteran suicide deaths and 43.2% of female Veteran suicide deaths in 2017.
  • In addition to the aforementioned Veteran suicides, there were 919 suicides among never federally activated former National Guard and Reserve members in 2017, an average 2.5 suicide deaths per day.
