Learn More About The Bodhi
Battalion And The Veterans
To learn more about our nonprofit, feel free to explore our website or contact us if you have any questions. We are happy to discuss all of the important work we do and how you can become a part of the growing movement to help veterans in need.
Our mission is to provide accessible resources, community connection, mental health services, and service dogs to veterans experiencing challenges related to post-traumatic stress, mental health, addiction, isolation, and risk of suicide.
To create a comprehensive system of support and wellness through collaboration with like-minded community providers to address the challenges specific to veterans and create a united front against veteran suicide.
To foster independence for veterans struggling with PTSD, TBI, and substance abuse
Their innovative methods combine evidence-based therapeutic practices with animal-assisted therapy and custom trained service dogs to address mental health, substance abuse, isolation, community involvement, interpersonal communication and so much more.
What makes the Bodhi Battalion unique as a nonprofit is that we look at each veteran as a whole person to effectively address the reasons for his or her current challenges. By gaining a deeper understanding of the issues our veterans face, we can work together step-by-step to foster and maintain the components of a meaningful life. The Bodhi Battalion believes that canine involvement can provide the essential bridge to treatment that is so vital. In 2019 the Bodhi Battalion developed the P.T.S.D REDEFINED program, Providing Treatment (through) Service Dogs. This program allows veterans to interact and help prepare young service dogs in training for veteran matching and service placement. Our program utilizes critical cognitive and mindfulness-based techniques to create a parallel learning process that generates the most beneficial and welcoming environment for restorative therapeutic progress. Many organizations offer service dogs, many offer therapy, but the Bodhi Battalion utilizes both to create a deeper, more enduring model of healing.
Ensuring Our Veterans Get The Care They Deserve
if you or your loved one is a veteran and needs help, reliable treatment, or life transition assistance, please contact us today. No matter a veteran’s service era or background, the Bodhi Battalion can help him or her build a rewarding, calm and connected life.
Get Involved And Contribute To Our Cause
As a nonprofit with no paid employees, we rely on our generous volunteers and donors to help meet the needs of the veterans we serve. We have a variety of opportunities for you or your business to get involved and invest in the success of local veterans in need.
You may be interested in volunteering your time and expertise to help plan events, build partnerships or maintain the safety and cleanliness of our veteran housing buildings. It’s also possible that you are a therapist or service provider who has experience treating veterans with physical or emotional challenges, and you would like to donate your time to give them an opportunity to receive the care they need. Or perhaps you are a veteran who has overcome difficulties in the past, and now you would like to mentor fellow veterans, setting a positive example and offering your guidance.
Since our organization does not have any overhead administration costs, 100 percent of the funding we receive benefits our veterans. Whether you would like to donate your money in honor of a veteran loved one or you are interested in making a one-time or recurring donation to improve a veteran’s life your contribution will go directly into helping the brave individuals we serve. Or, instead of donating money, you may be interested in donating new or gently used items to veterans who are just beginning their healing process with the Bodhi Battalion.
If you would like to get your corporation or business involved in helping veterans in the Denver metro area, we are excited to start an important partnership with you and your company. Whether you are interested in investing in our cause, volunteering with your team members or offering us your space to host an event, we want to hear from you!
