Service is not defined by the uniform you wear.

For many military veterans, taking off the uniforms of our Armed Forces leaves them with a sense of loss in purpose, community and identity.
Team Rubicon gives them a cause to step back into the arena, lace up their boot and regain that sense of mission-focus and being a part of something larger than oneself. 

The unique mindset and grit of military veterans ensures Team Rubicon can get the job done under any circumstances.

Skills sharpened in military service, like teamwork, risk assessment, emergency medicine, and decisive leadership, translate directly to disaster relief.
Experience in challenging environments gives military veterans a razor-sharp edge when working under the pressures of a disaster scenario.

When crises strike our communities, we come together to help others on their darkest day. 

Why do we serve? Because it’s what we do. 

Team Rubicon is BUILT TO SERVE.




While there are real and difficult issues plaguing our veterans – a lack of resources and understanding around mental health, homelessness, unemployment – at Team Rubicon, veterans are the agent of our mission, not the object. 

By serving with Team Rubicon and focusing on our communities, veteran volunteers earn a new uniform, a new mission, and a community of like-minded individuals. 

Measuring Impact

Team Rubicon runs an annual Impact Survey to measure the influence of continued service on veterans and volunteers. Our goal is to ensure our programs are providing a positive effect on the lives of our members.

US Air Force veteran

I knew to expect devastation and hard work. What I didn’t expect is the confluence of events that places me with an incredible team already dispatched and ready to meet the challenges of the day. A marine, a soldier, two airmen, and a civilian, ready to muck and shuck all kinds of debris. We know exactly where we’re headed, confident in the assurance that we can make a difference in the lives of these people who we encounter during our recovery ops.
