Charting impact

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

To reduce or eliminate the effects of depression, PTSD, substance abuse, and suicidal thoughts in the Veteran, active Military, First Responder communities and their families by providing education, counseling, training, social and volunteer opportunities, and other organized and free-form activities. To also have programs for morale and outreach.

To have a facility open 24/7 with no reservations needed that will have outdoor and indoor recreational opportunities along with providing counseling, educational and other resources. Along with social and volunteer opportunities. For morale and outreach to have programs were we go to hospitals or the homes to deliver care packages in the case of traumatic events, injuries or loss, or send care packages for morale/encouragement.

We continue to grow our social media following online and network offline as well. We schedule an average of one event each month, with the goal of scaling upwards as we grow and gain additional support.

We have gathered an extensive list of resources that we use to make referrals in the event there is a need in the community.

  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
