Charting impact

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

We are reducing the stresses in the lives of Veterans and their families, thereby, reducing the number of Veteran suicides.

This accomplished by Listening to the individual based on a premise of helping them, regardless of the need. Then connecting them to Qualified Resources what we have vetted to ensure they actually perform as advertised. Third, because of the interaction with multiple Veterans every day we become the voice for them as we seek out more needs and share these needs with our 50-member Resource Team, the VA, local communities, Rotary International and others engaged in supporting the needs of Veterans.

Our team includes over 50 years of small business experience with our board of directors and an advisory group we are assembling.

We are deeply engaged in the Veteran community from the past several years in various offices within the Colorado Veterans of Foreign Wars, Rotary International District 5450 Assistant Governor, assistant editor of a group of news papers for seniors, a retired IBM project manager, a suicide prevention/education team leader and an operations manager for a home care company.

The Executive Director was a partner in two civil/structural engineering companies, a design engineer for a municipal-industrial, water/waste water company and the last 18 years the owner of an IT company catering to businesses with less and 200 employees.

We have the ability to reach in and recruit interns from the local universities and find volunteers we've met in the last 30 years.

Over 1,500 Listening Sessions in the past 4 1/2 years.
Moved from 40 to 50 vetted, Qualified Resources in the Directory
The first quarter we printed was the second quarter which included 500 copies.
We now have over 9,500 in circulation.
We receive over 150 inbound calls per month from Veterans or family members
We serve approx. 100 Veterans or family members every month
There are 25 - 40 new Veterans or family members who call us for assistance each month
