OUR PROGRAMS

OPERATOR & FAMILY SUPPORT

Our programs serve to increase the combat readiness of the force and family. We know that being part of this community is an incredible commitment and one that is not free from burden or sacrifice.

The Special Forces Foundation’s programs are specifically designed to address the unique needs of the Special Forces community. Today’s world is a safer place thanks in large part to our U.S. Special Forces and Special Forces community, but not without a significant sacrifice from those warriors and their families. There is the sacrifice of time as families are apart; the sacrifice of safety for those risking their lives; and, at times, the ultimate sacrifice—losing their lives for the pursuit of freedom.

The Special Forces Foundation continuously develops, evaluates, and refines our program offerings, ensuring the Special Forces community and its families are receiving the best support and care possible as they accomplish their mission, both abroad and at home.

IREL8 MENTAL HEALTH APP

The Special Forces Foundation provides immediate and ongoing support to the Special Forces Community and their families. Today, we face a mental health crisis and the Special Forces Foundation has partnered with iRel8 – an anonymous, peer empowerment platform that can improve and, potentially, save lives. Developed in tight collaboration with Microsoft, iRel8 provides best-in-class, enterprise level functionality and security.

iRel8 has an exclusive SFF section available only to current and former Green Berets and offers a safe place to chat anonymously with your peers without fear of stigma. Plus, unlike other apps, your data is NEVER sold to third-parties and there are no ads in the app. Available 24/7/365. This is a safe place to help and heal.

THE STARK REALITY

  • 20% of vets who served in Iraq or Afghanistan suffer from major depression or post traumatic stress.
  • Nearly 25% of veterans have a mental health issue leading to suicide, addiction, homelessness, domestic violence, and/or incarceration.
  • Long waits at the VA, fear of professional consequences, and lack of qualified therapists (shortage of 250k clinicians by 2025) negatively impacts veteran mental health.

HOW TO GET THE APP

Access to this app is provided by SFF for our current and former Green Berets at no cost. In order for us to ensure ONLY our Green Berets have access to this private area, we must confirm service.

LEGACY PRESERVATION & MEMORIAL PROJECT

Are you looking for assistance for a project commemorating Special Forces? The Special Forces Foundation has many contacts that can help make your goal a reality.

The Memorial honors the Green Berets from the 10th Special Forces Group who made the ultimate sacrifice. This beautiful space of reflection and remembrance is located on site at Fort Carson.

The Memorial will be located on the 10th Special Forces Group compound, in beautiful Colorado. It will feature the names of all the unit members lost in combat, and those non-combat fatalities incurred during active service.

On June 17, 2022, the Trojan Horse Monument (pictured above) was installed as the first phase of this project. With your help, we can make the rest of the Memorial a reality for the Green Berets and families at 10th Special Forces Group.

Your purchase of a Memorial Brick leaves a tangible piece of history for all who visit the Memorial. With multiple inscription options you can show your support or donate in the memory of a loved one or friend.

​100% of the brick sales net proceeds will be allocated towards the completion of the memorial walk.

Interested in learning more about how you can help us meet our goals? Contact us to learn more about setting up a raffle or fundraiser.

100% of your online donation will go to the memorial – making this a reality for our Green Berets, their families, and our Gold Star families.
