Quick Facts About MMIA

  • Military Missions in Action is also informally referred to as MMIA.


  • Mike Dorman is the Founder and Executive Director of MMIA. He retired from the United States Coast Guard in 1999 after serving for 20 years. After his retirement, Mike was a contractor in Wake County, North Carolina prior to starting MMIA in November 2007. In February of 2013 Mike was presented the 2012 Presidential Citizens Medal for his work completed within the community and for our veterans.


  • Since beginning, for every $1.00 donated at least $.93 was spent on providing services to veterans with disabilities, supporting our service members and their families, and just $.03 was used for administrative costs.


  • MMIA was formally incorporated in the State of North Carolina on November 6, 2007.


  • MMIA was approved as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on January 1, 2008. All donations to MMIA are 100% tax deductible if no direct benefits are received for the donation.


  • The primary focus of MMIA is to provide home modification services to veterans with disabilities to allow them to live independently (services are not restricted to those injured in combat nor is it restricted to disabled veterans from the most recent combat conflicts). MMIA has assisted veterans from the current conflict back to WWII.


  • There are three main MMIA Programs:

  1. "Operation Building Hope" provides handicap accessibility for veterans with disabilities and military children with special needs.

  2. "Homes for Healing" assists veterans that are in the HUD-VA Supportive Housing program with furniture and household goods.

  3. "Fill the Footlocker" supports deployed service members by collecting and shipping comforts of home, as well as provides clothing, shoes, blankets and hygiene items to our homeless veterans in North Carolina. All under this program is Operation Building Hope, providing new toys, gift cards and monetary donations to low-income military and veteran families during the holiday season.


  • MMIA has two office locations.

  1. Our State Office is located on North Judd Parkway in Fuquay-Varina, NC, and is provided lease-free and utility-free by The Young Group of Fuquay.

  2. Our Southern Pines office is located on S. Page St. in Southern Pines, NC, and is provided lease-free and utility-free by the VFW Post 7318 of Southern Pines.
