Defenders of Freedom

Mission Statement

Defenders of Freedom provides donors with the organization they need to support post 9/11 Veterans in their transition to civilian life through emergency financial assistance, morale building programs, and traumatic brain injury treatment.

 

Our Story

Defenders of Freedom (DOF) was founded in 2004 by Donna Cranston. As the mother of a warrior deployed in Iraq, Donna combined her personal experiences as a military mom with her passion and desire to help our Veterans succeed with honor as they returned home. Raised in a family that instilled patriotism, Donna began her journey working with Veterans by sending care packages overseas to the Troops and participating in the Welcome Home a Hero program at the Dallas Fort Worth Airport. This program supported the Army’s Rest and Recuperation program for weary Soldiers who came home for 2 weeks during their yearlong tour. Donna attended her first DFW greeting in June of 2004, and it changed her life forever. Through these activities and the unfilled needs that Donna learned from her interactions with Veterans, she founded Defenders of Freedom as an avenue to connect the community to service members. Most Americans support our Troops, but just don’t know how they can help. They just needed a tangible way to participate. DOF began providing assistance to Veterans by sending care packages and providing emergency financial assistance to those that returned with disabilities and were badly in need. Donna listened to these men and women and responded to their needs. DOF expanded its services to include an evidence-based approach to treating Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in Veterans.

TBI is the signature wound for post 9/11 Veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and historically, very little had been done to successfully treat the injury. Defenders of Freedom identified a solution to this debilitating injury and is committed to helping Veterans get this life changing treatment. Functional neurology is proving to improve the lives of the Veterans we put through the program. We believe it might be the most effective tool in combatting suicide among post 9/11 Veterans.

DOF serves both male and female Veterans who have deployed to the middle east. We have worked with Veterans across 32 states. Veterans are referred to us from the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), crisis hotlines, local social service providers, and by word-of-mouth from other Veterans.

According to the Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center, TBI is a significant health issue which affects service members and Veterans during times of both peace and war. This condition is estimated to have affected 370,000 service members since 2000. For every soldier killed since 2003, seven soldiers have been injured. Multiple deployments enhance the chances of leaving a tour with TBI. Many Soldiers make it home from war seemingly outwardly untouched, when in reality they are some of the most debilitated. What we have learned from Veterans is that until they receive proper treatment for a TBI, rather than just prescribed medication to address symptoms, their road to healing is both long and challenging. It is common for DOF to see Veterans who were stellar Soldiers while on active duty, now unable to hold down civilian jobs and have no idea why they are not able to properly function. DOF has worked tirelessly with these Veterans to help them get the care that they need to get them on the right path.

Defenders of Freedom’s primary goals are to provide care and transitional support for our Troops and Veterans, assistance with basic living necessities through short-term emergency financial support, address imminent physical and mental health issues, improve morale, keep Veterans engaged in a supportive community, and to provide access to Veterans with TBI to a comprehensive treatment protocol.

Grace After Fire

Grace After Fire was first started as The Women’s Heart by Stephanie Moles in 2002, with a focus on increasing access to healthcare services for women Veterans, especially those who struggled with drug and alcohol abuse.

Over time, the leadership of the organization transitioned from Stephanie Moles to retired Air Force Colonel Kim Olson, then to US Navy Veteran Mea Williams.

As Grace After Fire matured, the focus of the organization shifted from the challenges of the woman Veterans to the empowerment of the woman Veteran.  Grace After Fire’s mission became centered on helping the woman Veteran help herself by connecting her with the resources and the tools she needs to be a productive citizen in her community, her work and her home after transitioning from the military.

Ever since 2008, Grace After Fire has been serving the Veteran community by providing community resource navigation services, social events, and annual retreats to women Veterans and their families.  In 2012, Grace After Fire launched the Table Talk Color Me Camo peer-to-peer support group programming designed specifically for women Veterans, and in 2017, Grace After Fire began providing financial basic needs assistance to women Veterans and her family.

Lone Survivor Foundation

OUR HISTORY

Retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell’s #1 New York Times bestseller, Lone Survivor, tells the story of his teammate’s strength and dedication to each other and to their country during ORW, a mission to gather intelligence on Taliban leadership in Afghanistan. Marcus was the only survivor of this 2005 mission. Though he was badly injured in the ambush that claimed the lives of his team, he survived until American forces rescued him six days later.

Marcus Luttrell’s Texas ranch was the center of his post-combat recovery.  It was there that he learned that effective healing can require more than the standard government treatment plan of talk therapy and medication.  He wanted other military families to have the opportunity to step out of their daily routines and come to a place of peace; a place where they could obtain tools for healing while being surrounded by other people who understand them.  Marcus founded Lone Survivor Foundation in 2010 to provide that opportunity while honoring the warriors that gave their lives in service to our country in ORW.

MISSION

Lone Survivor Foundation’s mission is to provide Veterans and their families with a path to healing from their invisible wounds.

VISION AND GOALS

Build 3 – 4 nationally recognized therapeutic program facilities to allow us to better fulfill our mission and serve our growing waiting list of service members, veterans and families in need.

Stabilize and enhance family structures and relationships through education, counseling, support, and inspiration using short-term and referral programs.

Love Hope Ranch

RESTORING HERO’s & REUNITING THE FAMILY

The most painful injuries are not always visible.  Whether it’s Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), combat stress or any other mental health condition, we are here to help you get through it.  Every veteran and 1st responder affected by PTS has unique challenges and goals.  We provide a variety of programs and services to help these individuals take the steps each day needed to put trauma and pain behind them and pursue a brighter tomorrow.

LOVE HOPE RANCH operates to provide tools for healing and restoration for the entire family.  Our programs will allow our veterans the opportunity to make strides to positively change their lives and others affected by PTS.  Our program model addresses the physical and mental health needs of each individual.

Are you someone affected by or experiencing PTS? Can you imagine your life free from fear and anxiety? Know that PTS does not have to be a lifelong disorder. Healing, Restoration and Recovery is possible.

This program is fully funded by donors and grants through our 501(c)3. There will be no cost for the veteran and family.

 

LOVE HOPE RANCH

Restoration camp gives the guests and family members the tools to overcome the obstacles they face in life.  In an all-male, all-female, couples retreat or youth camp, you’ll participate in activities such as interacting with horses, nature trail walking, fishing, camp fire sessions, outdoor cooking, scavenger hunts and more.  Through a multi-day adventure with PTSD trained professionals and fellow warriors, you’ll find yourself not only building strong relationships, but also healing, restoring your sense of self, and rediscovering a new YOU.

EQUINE THERAPY

Horses have been used as healing therapy since ancient times. The beauty and spirit of these animals is very much like our own: rough, strong, ready to run great lengths for freedom, however calm and peaceful inside. Through this therapy we will find a sense of peace, love, friendship, trust, and unity with our animal companion.

YOUTH OUTREACH

Our Youth Program offers fun filled options for your child to make memories that will last for a lifetime. We make time for outdoor fun, art creation, healing moments with Jesus’ teaching, self-development, athletic obstacles for team building, and more.

MARRIAGE RESTORATION

Trauma affects everyone in its path. It is vital that we understand that this state of mind is only temporary. By learning to embrace each other’s needs thru grace, patience and forgiveness, we can bring back the peace, love and spark that you once had within your relationship.

RELAXATION & TRANQUILITY

Our minds and bodies tend to get away from us at times. In order to regain control and find inner peace, we must enter a state of relaxation. The quiet and stillness is critical for our mind, body and soul to align. Are we really out of control, or do we just feel like it?

We are the only one in control of our thoughts and feelings, so it is up to us to maintain a healthy body and sound mind. With a little restoration and polish, you can feel brand new. With a little vulnerability and trust, you step out of the dark loop of trauma that plays over and over.

It is a win-win for all involved!
