Bringing military sexual assault Out Of The Shadows

Our Mission


Healing for BOOTS, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising funds to aide in the psychological healing of victims of military sexual trauma and raising public awareness of the on-going problem of sexual assault and trauma with the US Armed Services.  Our dedicated members are committed to giving back to those who so selflessly give to our great Country.


Rape, sexual assault and sexual harassment are one of the leading causes of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among women veterans and puts them at a higher risk for homelessness.

HOW DO WE HELP THEM?
 Healing for BOOTS, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to raising funds to aide in the psychological healing of victims of military sexual trauma and raising public awareness of the on-going problem of sexual assault and trauma within the US Armed Services.  None of our board members or officers are paid and we depend entirely upon funds raised in the private sector.
  .   
 
First and foremost, Healing For BOOTS, Inc. raises funds through various events which are then passed on to non-profit organizations that provide psychological healing for victims of military sexual trauma.  

Educating the public is our secondary goal.  Only through public awareness and pressure will the military be forced to confront the on-going problem of sexual trauma within its ranks.

ABOUT US
announcements coming soon.
MST includes any sexual activity where a Service member is involved against his or her will - he or she may have been coerced into sexual activities either by threats or better treatment within his or her unit,  may have been unable to consent to sexual activities (drugged or intoxicated), or may have been physically forced into sexual activities (rape).  
What is MST?
IN THE NEWS
Our founding members have always been active volunteers within the community.  Our Veterans and active-duty military have been a focus of many of our volunteer efforts for years.  We wanted to find a way to bring attention to the issue of military sexual trauma to to the public and at the same time,  host fund raising events to aid in the healing of its victims.  The military wants to keep this issue in out of the spotlight but Healing for Boots, Inc. wants to Bring it Out Of The Shadows.
We are a dedicated group of volunteers raising funds to support other non-profit agencies and foundations which help to heal the victims of Military Sexual Trauma (MST).  We are also committed to raising awareness among the public to the continued problem of MST.
