STRIKEOUT FOR A CAUSE
Strikeout for A Cause is a 501c3 charitable non profit started in San Diego, Ca in 2018. With a mission of serving those who serve us. Our founders Joseph and Terrance both come from local military families.
Military families are at risk of developing secondary PTSD. Children in military families are exposed to stress levels that could be considered toxic according to The American Academy of Pediatrics. The National Center for Child Traumatic Stress notes that, “Military children experience unique challenges related to military life and culture. These include deployment-related stressors and reintegration.” Military children live with the constant fear of losing a parent, parental separation, moving and making new friends, all while living in a household with one often overloaded parent holding down the fort. The dynamics of welcoming a returning parent that has been injured physically or mentally is real. Children often mimic behaviors of a returning parent with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Even an at home parent struggling with anxiety can have a significant impact on their children’s well-being. Managing stress as a family needs to be a high priority.
Our goal is to change that by providing memorable experiences for our children, veterans and community.
We believe in the importance of serving those who serve us. We believe it is always the right time to do the right thing.
We believe our community will benefit from providing meaningful experiences to inspire the next person up to share that feeling. We believe in each other.
