MISSION: We help prevent homelessness and suicides by providing our veterans camaraderie, mentorship, family healing and valuable expressive arts industry skills for economic stability and successful reintegration into civilian life.
At Creative Drill Sergeants our philosophy of using Expressive Arts to heal Veterans begins with healing their families too! Our Veterans need to heal together with their families, as cohesive units, in order to help their Family Unit have a successful transition back into civilian life and prevent Veteran homelessness and/or suicides.
CDS Staff and volunteers utilize Trauma Informed Care Practices to help our Veterans with TBI, PTSD, MST and other mental and physical issues avoid factors that lead to homelessness and suicides. We strive for a self-transformative healing experience for our Veterans and their families; healing together as cohesive units through Expressive Arts, coping skills, life skills and Holistic mind-body philosophies and practices for successful reintegration into civilian life.
