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 have started our Family morale program handing out bags with arts and crafts supplies, as well as books mainly ones that help children understand PTSD their parents may have. We are also beginning our care package program for the children of our military/first responders in the case of a traumatic events, loss or injuries were we will deliver or send comfort care packages.

In additional we have gathered a extensive list of resources that we use to make referrals in the event their is a need in the community.
