About Us

The Bodhi Battalion

The Bodhi Battalion (pronounced Bo-dee, meaning “awakening”) was established in 2015 to provide support to veterans who are struggling with mental/behavioral health issues, addiction, positive social support systems, and community engagement.

We collaborate with like-minded community initiatives and organizations to foster supportive community relationships, connection with necessary resources, and prosocial activities. Their innovative methods combine evidence-based therapeutic practices with animal-assisted therapy and custom trained service dogs to address mental health, substance abuse, isolation, community involvement, interpersonal communication and so much more.

Our beloved leader and friend, Pat established the very first golf4vets charity tournament in 2016.

A model of generosity, courage and strength we are honored to carry on those values in his name. We take with us his spirit of service and altruism as we continue our service to veterans.

Veteran’s quality of life is #1


Veteran’s quality of life is #1

What makes the Bodhi Battalion unique as a nonprofit is that we look at each veteran as a whole person to effectively address the reasons for his or her current challenges. By gaining a deeper understanding of the issues our veterans face, we can work together step-by-step to foster and maintain the components of a meaningful life.

Canine Involvement

The Bodhi Battalion believes that canine involvement can provide the essential bridge to treatment that is so vital. In 2019 the Bodhi Battalion developed the P.T.S.D REDEFINED program, Providing Treatment (through) Service Dogs.

This program allows veterans to interact and help prepare young service dogs in training for veteran matching and service placement. Our program utilizes critical cognitive and mindfulness-based techniques to create a parallel learning process that generates the most beneficial and welcoming environment for restorative therapeutic progress. Many organizations offer service dogs, many offer therapy, but the Bodhi Battalion utilizes both to create a deeper, more enduring model of healing.
