The Forgotten Soldier Program is dedicated to offering the highest complementary integrative health care for optimized treatment and preventive care that strengthens physical, mental, and spiritual health of Veterans.  

Your donation allows us to serve Veterans who can’t afford conventional or holistic therapies, cover operating expenses, and conduct Veteran and community outreach. All our Veterans, their families young and old, need support for their return to a normal, productive life. We hope you will join us in supporting our Veterans, and serving them as they have served us and our country.

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • ​Chronic Physical and Emotional Pain
  • Anxiety and Impairment
  • Military Sexual Trauma
  • Depression
  • Flashbacks
  • Stress and more…

We rely on the support of the community and other fellow Veterans to meet the needs of our HEROS. Without the support of volunteers, we would not be able to accomplish our mission. Can you swing a hammer, be a part of a committee, know a valuable resource, offer services......Help us Help others.  It doesn't matter how important your job was....without support we would fail.  Sometimes the ones giving support are the ones that need it the most. Let us also give back to the people that support Veterans because without you we couldn't do our job.  Contact Us.

About five years ago, The Armed Forces Pavilion and Community Garden located at 995 Lincoln Way, Auburn CA was nothing more than a dream and a dirt lot. A collaborative effort of numerous Veterans and FSP set in motion a plan to give Veterans a common place to work together on healing, to join with the community and learn about each other. Helping with growing vegetables and plants. Harvesting and providing food for the Homeless and the families that work in the garden. Through overwhelming support from local business and countless hours from volunteer’s, that dream is now a reality.

Getting Down and Dirty

Are you a business owner that has a service that could benefit the garden? Do you have able hands? Or do you just want to play in the dirt?  We want your help and so do Veterans. Contact Us today and let us know when you’d like to volunteer.

About Us

Donna_Arz PhDDonna Arz PhD.   –  Founder – FSP

We help you find your way home!

I realized the brave men and women who served for our country were not getting the help they needed. Many of our HEROES return with emotional, physical, and spiritual injuries that can last a lifetime. I believe you can combine different modalities to bring back balance to the mind, body, and spirit.

With that desire in my heart, I created THE FORGOTTEN SOLDIER PROGRAM [FSP] to give hope back so that no one is forgotten. All of us should be looking to make a difference in our world and through mindfulness and empathy I believe we can make a difference.
