CLICK HERE to support the new construction of Dryhootch!

We need your support! Dryhootch Madison is moving and we need to raise
$15,000 to finish construction and move in to our new location!
Dryhootch Madison iS relocating to 2825 University Ave – tucked into
the side of the IHOP and JUST blocks away from the Madison VA
Hospital. Our new Hootch is 1500 square feet and will include a coffee
bar, lounge/social space, private and group meeting rooms and much
more! With your help and support we are confident we can finish
construction and move into the new Hootch by June 1st 2015!!!
Our mission at Dryhootch is to “Help the Veteran and their family, who
survived the war, survive the peace.” Dryhootch is a nonprofit 501c3
organization formed by combat Veterans to help Veterans in their
return home. Dryhootch was envisioned as a place where Veterans could
gather informally in a coffee house; a safe, comfortable, drug and
alcohol free environment. The idea revolved around the creation of a
retail coffee shop run by and for Veterans, which would also support
an extended network of Veteran families and encourage Veteran
interaction with the community as a whole.
Peer Support is the basis for everything we do at Dryhootch. The
brothers and sisters who had your back while in service are now here
at Dryhootch, providing you with the same support in “the real world.”
They can give advice on benefits, explain how they made the transition
back, or just be a buddy that can finish your sentences. It is behind
everything we do here. Some of the many support groups offered at
Dryhootch Madison are:
*    Vets Over Sixty
*    Female Veterans
*    Minority Veterans
*    Spouses/Partners Group
*    PTSD Group
*    Trauma Release Exercise (TRE)
*    Acupunture
*    Massage
*    Art Therapy
*    Writing Collective
*    Alcohol Anonymous (AA)
*    Spiritual Guidance
*    Healing Meditation
