The HSMAI Community Outreach Committee plans and coordinates community service/volunteer projects throughout the year and serves as the liaison with HSMAI's "Charity of the Year" projects.

How will you make a difference in 2020? The Community Outreach Committee is working on fun and impactful events for 2020. Our goal is to offer HSMAI members the opportunity to positively contribute to the community while having fun without a year-long commitment. We welcome you to join us for one or all of our events.

If you'd like to participate on the committee or in any of the projects, please contact:

HSMAI "CHARITY OF THE YEAR" FOR 2020
Soldier's Best Friend

Soldier's Best Friend - Saving 2 lives at once

MISSION
Soldier's Best Friend provides U.S. military veterans living with combat-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with Service or Therapeutic Companion Dogs, most of which are rescued from local shelters. The veteran and dog train together to build a trusting relationship that saves two lives at once and inspires countless others.

We are devoted to helping our veterans living with combat-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). We also want to help the pet overpopulation problem.

GOAL
Soldier's Best Friend is an Arizona-based 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation. Our board and staff are comprised of war veterans, practicing PTSD therapists, professional service dog trainers, veterinarians, experienced nonprofit professionals, and many great volunteers. We are dedicated to pairing and training service dogs with veterans at no cost to the veteran. For more information on the good things SBF does for the community, click here.
