Welcome to USSA

United Special Sportsman Alliance, Inc. (USSA) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit wish-granting charity specializing in sending critically ill and disabled youth and disabled veterans on a free outdoor adventure of their dreams.

USSA adventures give our youth and veterans something to look forward to and help sustain them in their time of need. Providing families with a respite from the mundane, man-made world of hospitals and high medical bills, USSA adventures replace that world with a place of peace, so they have the opportunity to focus on the quality of life, family ties, and the wonders of our natural world.

USSA is composed of a 100% volunteer staff from all walks of life, bonded together by a common love for our fellow man and deep respect and appreciation of our world’s natural resources. Working cooperatively with caring ‘Adventure’ donors as well as generous individual and corporate sponsors, USSA significantly impacts the lives of thousands of children, disabled veterans, and their families. Through these valuable efforts, the image of sportsmen is enhanced in the public eye, and lifelong friendships are made. To learn more about the charity, please view our ‘About USSA‘ page.
