The Special Ops Survivors story began in 2002 when one person was inspired to help a Special Ops family in need. In early 2002, word came that a Navy SEAL, Neil Roberts, had died in combat in the mountains of Afghanistan along with several other USAF and US Army Special Operations warriors. A fellow Navy SEAL, felt compelled to do something to take care of the family of Neil, John, Jason, and the others had left behind. From that one act, an entire organization grew and become Special Ops Survivors.
As a small non-profit organization with a big mission, we rely on a dedicated service team of passionate volunteers, generous supporters, a hard-working staff, and a fully committed Board of Directors. Together, we work to foster an environment of respect, sanctuary, and access for our survivors. For our donors and supporters, we are committed to upholding our promises and duties by being good stewards of our resources.
