Make a Difference through Philanthropy
We know recovery can be rewarding and stimulate resiliency for all involved when there is support from families, friends, and community (peers, comrades and private/public partnerships providing and guiding targeted services). Philanthropy is of a critical nature to support this concept as well as to assist us in our need to investigate and research new and emerging therapies that apply to the common behavioral challenges for active duty personnel, the veteran and their family members pre, during and post deployment.
As the number of our consumers increase, we need to accelerate the process to recruit, train and certify the next generation of providers and peers of our transformational care. We need to provide educational materials to our consumers, first responders and the community at large. We must provide the services to help our consumers coordinate their needs through our peer support specialists while coping with their emotional and financial challenges. Nowhere is the impact of philanthropy more critical.
We formed our 501(c)3 Foundation dedicated to Veterans and their families in order to sustain the future and growth of our work. You may make a contribution directly to either foundation, or to learn more about how you can support us, please contact:
