Healing Patriots is an organization with the core mission to serve U.S. Veterans and First Responders, who have sustained injuries and conditions due to their service, to experience a life changing experience for a better way of life (A New Beginning) through outdoor expeditions which include fishing and hunting.

These outdoor expeditions have been found to be therapeutic in many ways from the calmness and relaxation that the environment brings. The guests get to connect with other brothers and sisters in the service, create a special camaraderie, and learn coping skills to help with their PTSD symptoms.


Courage MKE fuels a collaborative movement to provide the resources LGBTQ+ youth need to thrive.

Courage MKE became an idea of Co-Founders, Brad and Nick Schlaikowski while they were foster parents upon learning the children's stories of rejection, fear and survival. Together they welcomed multiple homeless and displaced LGBTQ+ youth into their home. It is because of their tenacity, Brad and Nick started Courage MKE in their honor in December 2015.

Knowing they were starting from the ground up, Brad and Nick along with their amazing Board of Directors made it Courage MKE's mission to raise awareness within our communities of the growing epidemic of homeless LGBTQ+ youth


JRs Pups-N-Stuff began with one goal in mind - to save animals from life threatening situations. That ideal has gotten us to where we are today. We've had quite a few happy endings (over 8000) and will continue to provide excellent homes to all future rescue dogs.

We do not discriminate. We do not rescue dogs specifically because of their breed or age or even health. We rescue animals that need us to save their lives and find a fur-ever match!
