QPR GATEKEEPER CERTIFICATION
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps to ensure that the public is better prepared and equipped with the education and tools necessary to help eradicate Veteran and First Responder Suicide. We are fully invested in this initiative empowering our community and delivering the support needed when they need it. With 22 veterans on average taking their own lives, it’s our goal to ensure these men and women don’t feel left behind.
Our volunteers reach out to veterans, first responders, caregivers, and family support members to check-in, provide updated information on services, and let them know we care. We let them tell us what their needs are. We then provide the resources they need to accomplish their goals.
Homeless Veterans and disability is a broad term, and there are many types of disabilities. When most people think of a disability, they think of things like an amputated limb, or an injury that can be seen by the public. But that doesn’t begin to cover it.
It’s the invisible disabilities that are the issue for veterans. PTSD, traumatic brain injury, seizure disorders, and many others are original conditions that prevent thousands of veterans from living a rewarding life.
When you add food insecurity, expensive housing, utilities, etc. Veterans on a fixed income become overwhelmed. Leading to homelessness.
In a nation blessed with an abundance of food, many in our communities go to bed, feeling hunger, some residing right next door. Sometimes, people have to choose between purchasing medication or food items.
Help Infinite Warrior Foundation provide food boxes and prepared meals to homeless individuals and families that are hungry.
