Our Mission

The Objective Zero Foundation enhances social connectedness and access to wellness resources to combat suicide within the military community.

Objective Zero is a mobile app and 501(c)(3) nonprofit that anonymously connects Users to a nationwide network of PEER SUPPORT and wellness resources, tools, and training.

“We believe veteran suicide can be prevented through the simple act of listening.”

Our Vision

The Objective Zero Foundation contributes to local, state, and national efforts that prevent suicide. We accomplish this by enhancing social connectedness and access to suicide prevention resources.

A mission-driven tech start-up, Objective Zero seeks to connect service members, veterans, their families, and caregivers to suicide prevention support and resources.

Giving all for others; asking for nothing in return.

Staying true to our mission, veterans, and each other.

Doing what we say; saying what we mean.

Building strong, meaningful bonds and social connectedness.

Being forthright with our intentions, actions, and dealings.

Thinking differently about problems and potential solutions; boldly taking action to solve them.

Holding in confidence the identity of community members.
