Joseph Sweeney


Joseph Sweeney serves as the Founder/CEO of The Asservo Project. For over 25 years, Mr. Sweeney has devoted himself to serving his country and community as a former SWAT Operator, Bomb Squad Commander, and U.S government Explosive Security Specialist.  While serving overseas working Anti-Terrorism programs, he had conversations with colleagues about child kidnapping and human trafficking.  Once aware of the size and scope of this epidemic and the lack of effort to combat it, he felt he had to do something to help these people and consequently The Asservo Project was formed, an organization to combat the Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation epidemic. We provide resources to assist Law Enforcement and conduct awareness seminars and build relationships with global organizations, The Asservo Project will succeed in rescuing and helping those affected by this criminal enterprise.   

Mr. Sweeney is also the former International Director of The International Association of Bomb Technicians and Investigators (IABTI) and currently serves on its Board of Trustees. He is also a member in good standing with the National Tactical Officers Association.

OneHope Wine Fundraiser

Event Details

So excited to have a ONEHOPE Wine fundraiser on FaceBook  for the Asservo Project starting June 1st at 6pm and the event will be open for 2 weeks!

I hope everyone is doing well right now and staying healthy…and sane! I’m reaching out tonight to share an exciting opportunity that crossed my path, and I’m hoping you all will check it out and help me spread the word Plus it gives back to this amazing charity that is all very near and dear to our hearts️.

With so many special occasions to be missed out on, I’m inspired to help people celebrate nonetheless and enjoy quality wine delivered right to their doorstep…and here’s how. I’ve started working with OneHope, a company that combines two of my favorite things - wine and charity! Here are some of my favorite things about OneHope and why I’ve chosen to represent them….

1. Every bottle of OneHope gives back to a designated charity - for instance, one glitter bottle of bubbly feeds 15 meals to hungry children.

2. OH wines are made in California and award-winning, developed by big names like Rob Mandavi Jr., Mari Wells Coyle & Tony Coltrin.

3. Their gifts are GORGEOUS and high quality, but there are many more I will share with you next week.

4. As a OH customer, you can save up to 30% right now and get free Preferred Membership. Why do you want to be a preferred member? Because not only will you save more on your own purchases, but you will accrue charitable donations with every purchase to donate to The Asservo Project!! Literally be doing charity as you sip wine…it’s a no

Please check us out on The Asservo Project Page and One Hope.
