Founded in 2010, Sheep Dog Impact Assistance is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization founded and headquartered in Rogers. SDIA exists to engage, assist and empower our nation's "Sheep Dogs" (veterans, law enforcement, fire and rescue, and EMS personnel) "to #GetOffTheCouch and reengage in living an active, meaningful and productive life with a renewed sense of purpose."
