RAISE 4 THE BRAVE ONLINE CAMPAIGN
OUR REASON: Veterans who suffer from PTS may have their symptoms of depression and isolation amplified due to the COVID-19 quarantine and the resulting reduction in mental health services.
OUR GOAL: The Raise 4 the Brave campaign is asking for your support to help our veterans. Our $50,000 goal will provide funding for 250 sessions to upcoming clients once we resume operations.
OUR DATES: Join us May 18 - May 25 for the Raise 4 the Brave online fundraising campaign in conjunction with Mental Health Awareness Week.
