We strive to carry out John's memory and giving nature through two areas of support programs and outreach.
Suicide Prevention Programs
We have teamed up with Living Works to provides essential tools for participants to recognize when someone may have thoughts of suicide and work with him or her to create a plan that will support their "immediate safety" in a form of suicide first aid. Our goal is to travel to tell John's story and follow up with a training program for the attendees through Living Works.
PTS Guide Dogs
Our second area of outreach is to provide Guide Dogs for veterans with PTS. We partner with Custom Canines Service Dog Academy to place trained service dogs with veterans. Over the past 5 years, we have sponsored four service dogs. Two of them have been placed with their battle buddies and the other two are currently in training to be matched with a veteran.
