Our Story

Trinity Oaks is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded on the premise that active participation in the outdoors is a powerful, healing, and fundamentally life-changing experience. Trinity Oaks’ mission is to use hunting, fishing and outdoor activities to give back and make a meaningful difference on the lives of others. For decades, we have known of the philosophical shift that outdoor activities cause within those who participate in them and how that profoundly impacts the wellness of our society. Since 2007, we have impacted over 3,400 of people who otherwise would not be able to afford the experience of the outdoors.

On an annual basis, Trinity Oaks is able to offer more than 50 events for people who can benefit from once-in-a-lifetime hunting or fishing experiences.  Our outdoor programs support Purple Heart and live combat veterans, families suffering through the terminal illness of one of their members, and underprivileged youth who lack proper mentorship.  Monthly, we also process and distribute over 9,000 pounds of game meat to address food insecurity and hunger in Texas and northern Mexico.

By the end of 2016, we will have provided programming for more than 1000+ youth and families, 1,000+ wounded warriors, and hundreds more, while processing tens of thousands of pounds of game meat for homeless shelters and food pantries throughout Texas and northern Mexico. By supporting Trinity oaks, you are personally teaching impoverished youth how to properly handle and respect firearms and hunt for quail and larger game, giving dream hunts to full the last wishes of terminally ill, and creating venues for outdoor events our brave wounded and live combat veterans, and offering programming to those most in need of the solace of wild places, compassionate comradely, and uplift of spirit.

Our Impact

 On an annual basis, Trinity Oaks is able to offer more than 50 events for people who can benefit from once-in-a-lifetime hunting or fishing experiences. Our outdoor programs support a range of deserving candidates including combat veterans, terminally ill and handicapped, underprivileged youth and those seeking recreational outdoors activities, and hungry families across Texas.

Thank You

Often the price to participate in hunting, fishing and outdoor activities is a limiting factor. We believe that there should be no cost to participate in these events. With our programs evolving and growing, our need for the support and generosity of individuals is now more crucial than ever in order for us to continue the important work of Trinity Oaks’ mission programs. Thank you for your time in reviewing our website and for your consideration of support. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
