About Us

At Challenge America - a 501(c)3 nonprofit - we have made it our mission to connect service members, veterans and their families to resources and solutions that build community and give purpose to their lives. From the beginning, we set out to challenge the status quo by designing and scaling innovative, evidence-based solutions to the needs of the military community - no matter where they live. By leveraging technology, creative arts and community solidarity, we are challenging America to think differently about how we serve our military.

HOW ARE WE THINKING DIFFERENTLY?

We are building community through everything that we do. Our Military Sisterhood Initiative, for example, is forging a national peer support network for women of the military. A collaboration with WINC: For All Women Veterans, this initiative provides a safe space where more than 2 million military sisters can connect and support one another. 

We are leveraging technology and innovation to connect military members to critical resources. Challenge America Makers for Veterans (CAMVETS) builds teams of designers, developers, and engineers around a specific need of an injured veteran, all working together to create innovative, life-changing solutions. We then leverage strategic partnerships to develop and scale these solutions in order to make them accessible to thousands of veterans and others facing similar challenges.

We believe in healing through the arts. We design unique Music Therapy Retreats that help veterans struggling with PTSD to cope with the trauma of their military experience. We also host a National Exhibit of Veteran Art to encourage veteran artists from a variety of media to continue their craft while also generating public awareness of and support for the military healing arts.

Ultimately, we believe that community, not charity is the answer. Working together, we can ensure that all veterans, service members and their families have access to the community support and integrated resources they need to live the lives they earned and deserve.

Now is the time. The challenges are great, but the possibilities are greater. 

Thank you for accepting the challenge!
