Defining and measuring social impact is challenging for any non-profit organization. For Objective Zero, it is especially difficult. The Objective Zero Foundation operates at the nexus of technology, peer support, providing health and wellness, and suicide prevention resources.

Since Objective Zero was first conceived in 2015, we believed that if we could save even one veteran’s life, it would all be worth it.

Since launching the OZ mobile app in December of 2017, the Objective Zero team has had a tremendous impact.

What follows are some notable metrics about how suicide impacts the military community, and success stories of OZ users and peer support Ambassadors.

I chose to volunteer after losing my son to suicide while he was deployed to Afghanistan. Before each deployment, I promised him I would be there for his fellow soldiers no matter what. I honor that commitment as an Ambassador for Objective Zero.

I love Objective Zero’s vision on saving a service-member’s life through direct verbal and video contact so much, I became an Ambassador.
