Anchors of Hope

A Mission to Decrease Suicide Rates Among Veterans, First Responders, & Military Spouses.

Anchors of Hope stands as a beacon of resilience in the face of a heart-wrenching crisis. Every day, an average of 20 veterans succumb to the invisible wounds of service, leaving us grappling with an epidemic of suicide. This harrowing statistic drives home a sobering reality: our veterans are fighting an unseen battle long after their service concludes.

June is PTSD Awareness Month, a time to focus on veteran wellbeing. At OVERWATCH, we are deeply committed to decreasing suicide rates among veterans, first responders, and military spouses. 

Anchors of Hope is our beacon of resilience in the face of a heart-wrenching crisis. Every day, an average of 20 veterans succumb to the invisible wounds of service, leaving us grappling with an epidemic of suicide. This statistic drives home a sobering reality: our veterans are fighting an unseen battle long after their service concludes.

We've ignited this initiative to support our veterans in their transition from the battlefield to civilian life. Acknowledging their valor, we aim to repurpose their unique skills, provide them with meaningful opportunities, and reinforce their intrinsic sense of duty in the mission-critical industry. It's more than just a mission, it's our pledge—to extend a lifeline to our veterans and foster their potential.

Hope on the Horizon

Celebrating ProgresS
& Pledging Continual
Support for Veterans.

In the dark landscape of the veteran suicide crisis, glimmers of hope are starting to shine through. Suicide is preventable, and we're beginning to see encouraging signs of progress. Data from the VA in 2019 showed a decrease in veteran suicides from the previous year—the lowest number of veteran suicides since 2007. This marked reduction is the first hint of a turning tide, a testament to the fact that our efforts are making a difference.

However, the battle is far from over. We believe that by providing transitioning veterans, first responders, and military spouses with a sense of purpose and meaningful careers, we can contribute to pushing that number down. And we need the public's support to amplify these efforts. The task is monumental, but with every life saved, we affirm the worthiness of our mission. Anchors of Hope is our pledge to veterans and our shared purpose to illuminate the path from despair to hope.

TAKE THE PLEDGE

FROM D-DAY: THURSDAY, JUNE 6 - PATRIOTS DAY: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11TH

We pledge our commitment to hiring at least one veteran, first responder, or military spouse between Thursday, June 6th 2024, and the 80th anniversary of D-Day and Wednesday, September 11, 2024, Patriot Day, the 23rd anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. 

We do this in memory of those who died in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Virginia, as well as to honor those service members and first responders who gave the ultimate sacrifice to defend our freedoms. We value and recognize the leadership, training, character, and discipline that our veterans bring to our company and the American workforce.

We believe that our fellow veterans can bring the same discipline and integrity to serving the data center industry as they once brought to serving our country. The more veterans that we can help find meaningful purpose upon their transition from military service, the better our chances at reducing the suicide rate among our fellow veterans.

DONATION DETAILS

The companies that successfully pledge and hire at least 1 Veteran, Military Spouse, or First Responder will be announced on Day 2 of DCAC.

Your donation will be used for training provided by The Independent Data Center Authority IDCA, where individuals will have the opportunity to gain certifications for various roles in the Data Center Industry, i.e., Safety, Cybersecurity, Operations, etc. Your donation greatly helps prepare Veterans, Military Spouses and First Responders for the next step in their careers.
