About The Forgotten Soldier Program

Giving hope so no one is forgotten

Donna Arz PhD.


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.

The Forgotten Soldier Program regularly volunteers time to help Veterans in the community.

On the first and third Tuesday of every month, the FSP staff goes to Mather VA Pain Clinic. 

(Due to Covid restrictions, this has been placed on hold until further notice.) 

On the second Friday of every month, the FSP staff go to the Sacramento Combat Vets Center off Howe Ave.

The FSP members have volunteered at the David Grant Hospital to work with the nursing department.

You can call the FSP main office at 530-889-2300 or visit the Auburn, CA office at 991 Lincoln Way, Auburn CA
