The Veterans Afield Foundation works together with many corporate and non-profit organizations in order to best serve our veterans, first responders and gold star families. Through an extensive list of hunting, fishing and other outdoor activities, we engage in a wide variety of interests. It is our goal, through these programs, to provide a pathway for regeneration and healing. By hosting small group outings, we create new life long friendships and a network of support.
The Kicking Bear Ministry is a nationwide faith-based, non-denominational youth program. We have partnered with them by having veterans volunteer to mentor youth at their camps, and help connect gold star youth to the Kicking Bear Program.

The Maine Disabled Veterans Moose Hunt is a unique program that utilizes injured veterans to help mitigate moose related crop damage to farms in northern Maine. Much more than a unique hunting trip, this experience allows veterans the opportunity to share time together afield and around the table, away from the pressures of life. The program is a partnership between Maine Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Maine Bureau of Veterans Services, and the host facility Smoldering Lake Outfitters.
