What's 22 a Day?
VA statistics tell us that on average 22 veterans commit suicide every day in the USA. At the Warrior Healing Project, we believe the crises that lead to suicide are often preventable, but the solutions are found in community relationships--not necessarily another government program. It takes people getting involved with their neighbors and taking responsibility for community well-being. That's why we created the Veteran Synergy Center, a place that houses 25+ veteran service operations under one roof with veterans in mind.
What's the center about?
The Veteran Synergy Center at 1838 Paseo San Luis in Sierra Vista actively fights for veterans at the street level where life happens to connect them with the resources they need for themselves and their families. You can find the list of services below, but the bottom line is to have the center on the front line when a crisis arises for a veteran or their family. We are the place veterans can go or call for help when they need it most, or when they want no-cost relief from PTSD, or they just want a good workout with a trainer for free. We are here to get involved with our partners and the veterans we serve every day.
Here’s what you can do about it:
We know you care about our community's veterans. We know you are grateful for their service. If you want to get involved with supporting our veterans with services like the ones listed below, you can give a single gift to the Warrior Healing Project that simultaneously benefits over 20 different veteran service organizations. Since we are a 501c3, your gift is also tax-deductible, and Chuffed makes it easy to commit to monthly giving. We ask that you consider our "$22 a Month to End 22 a Day" challenge--it takes only 500 people in Sierra Vista accepting that challenge to keep the Veteran Synergy Center open and operational with an all-volunteer staff. Please consider getting involved today!
