Company Information

Operation Home Shores, Inc. is a 100% volunteer organization. All proceeds from any fundraising efforts go 100% to helping veterans find healing.

We specialize in Fly Fishing and all related therapeutic activities. Please keep a sharp eye on our weekly announcements via social media for fly tying and fly casting courses and social gatherings. We partner with several local and national companies who support our programs and help us provide the best events for our veterans.

Fishing is a release from the stress. We provide a service FOR VETERANS, BY VETERANS. It is important to raise awareness within our community of the benefits that recreational therapy can have on our Heroes. Helping those who have fought for our freedom by introducing a healthy lifestyle, an outlet for frustration, assistance with re-integration, and personally guided trips with fellow compassionate Veterans and supporters.

The Focus

   Our team is comprised of extraordinary individuals from the community who strive to meet the needs of Veterans in need of a healthy outlet. We focus our activities on strengthening fellowship and the network of adaptive resources for veterans.

   As part of our program we offer gatherings in an outdoors setting to enjoy a variety of healing recreational activities. This promotes healing through camaraderie, providing ample opportunities for veterans to learn new skills and build their network of support while engaging the outdoors. 

   Though our focus through much of the year is fishing related programs such as fly casting, fly tying seminars, inshore and offshore fishing, and kayaking our network of supporters provide many other adventure based retreats for veterans.

   Other team building retreats involve camping, hunting, and domestic agriculture through partner organizations and sponsors.

Mission

Our mission is to promote fellowship, physical activity, mental fitness, perseverance, and compassion through an open connection with the outdoors. We are committed to the possibilities of healing through introduction of these activities as a means to introduce healthy outlets. Our pledge is to honor the enduring sacrifices of veterans and their families on an individual level through our community inclusive recreational therapy program. Always aiming to improve the wellbeing of those we serve.
