OPERATION REVAMP INC.

Helping Veterans Heal

aka Veteran's Art Center   |   Grand Junction, CO   |  www.operationrevamp.org

Mission

At Operation Revamp we believe art heals hidden wounds and our mission is to provide art and related opportunity to aid in healing mental health issues for Veterans, military family members and others suffering from trauma related mental injuries in functional creative art studios; to raise awareness of psychological scarring and benefits of artistic practices in healing; and to provide resources for those suffering from the hidden wounds of trauma in partnership with other agencies and non-profits.

Notes from the nonprofit

"This place saved my Life", "I not only found help for myself but was encouraged to find other veterans to come into the programs", "There should be one in every state" are a few of the comments we have received but more importantly we have witnessed the transformation in many veterans and family members.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Provide free art classes and workshops, free access to open art studio, free exhibitions, sales and marketing of veterans art work and free music lessons, including all needed tools, equipment and supplies. Offer healing arts including yoga and acupuncture to veterans and family members at no cost.
Providing art supplies and assistance to veterans at home.
To help heal the Veterans and Military families invisible wounds, ease the symptoms including homelessness, and promote mental wellness and awareness of alternative treatment options and therapies.

Purchase, creation and development of physical art center, studios and gallery. Recruitment of volunteer instructors and procurement of donated supplies and equipment for classes and workshops. Acquiring funding for ongoing expenses including utilities, rent or mortgage, operational and management cost, and specific assist to individuals.
Our current plan includes more structure to classes, increase in repeat veteran usage, transportation and delivery of supplies to veterans at home, and improvements to communication.

We have strong organizational leaders, have acquired a building and completed renovations and repairs through grants from community non-profits, received State grant for mortgage and electric for current year, received funding for purchase of vehicle for veteran transportation and receive some funding through direct donation in community.
Support of both the veterans and families and the community at large has resulted in numerous supplies and equipment as well as volunteer instructors. A large volunteer base has helped with operations. We have membership available for voting members who assist in the planning and operations.

We have accomplished acquiring the building and creating the veterans art center but we have not accomplished the purchase.
We have accomplished most of our planned renovations and repairs but now need to expand.
We have accomplished our goals of volunteer instructors for classes and workshops.
We have accomplished our goals of in kind donations of art supplies, musical instruments, tools and equipment.
We have not accomplished all of our goals of specialty equipment purchase.
We have not accomplished our budgeted goal of funds for program, operational and management expenses.
We have accomplished our goals of healing many veterans and families through art and alternative therapy but have not accomplished our goals of providing our services to all who need them in the area. In 2016-17 we provided services to 890 Veteran or Family members.
We have accomplished purchase, home delivery and transportation for isolated veterans at home due to the pandemic.
