22Mohawks Pups for Vets Program Objectives: "Veterans experiencing mental health issues may feel isolated, unsupported, or lacking purpose. A dog offers companionship and purpose, due to the care required and ongoing training the veterans and their families participate in. 22Mohawks Pups for Vets program participants and their families are invited to monthly trainings and cookouts which helps build social bonds. Between training sessions and social gatherings, this program is creating a larger meaning within 22Mohawks, the 22Mohawks Family. These connections within the veteran community become a layer of security and ultimately contribute to suicide prevention."
