A Mission to Honor, Repay, and Renew
Military, Veterans, Law enforcement Officers,and First Responders selflessly place themselves in life threatening situations every day. The psychological and physical toll taken on these heroic men and women is severe and can be life altering.
Lifesavers Healing Together is working to create a Wellness Center providing a safe haven for our bravest. A place to heal, to learn, to strengthen and to rehabilitate alongside their brethren.
The center being planned will be a stimulating, clean, and inviting environment. We will be committed to provide the best services by the most professional staff, which will include service personnel who have been the line of fire themselves. They know the dangers, they are aware of the associated trauma and are dedicated to help through therapeutic measures they have studied and mastered.
In addition to the highest standard of service we will also be vigilant in treating all who use our facility with dignity, respect and confidentiality.
The Numbers are Staggering
- There are approximately 5.5 million reported United States veterans living with a disability.
- Since the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are upwards of 120,000 cases of traumatic brain injury and 70,000 cases of post-traumatic stress disorder. The numbers above are only reported cases.
- Each year, more law enforcement officers die by suicide than are killed in the line of duty. Officers are at a heightened risk for suicide, due to the factors involved in responding to the various calls of services day-to-day.
- First responders interact with suicidal people which can be emotionally disturbing. At times the job requires dangerous rescues or body recoveries. That over time may lead to over-exhaustion, and internal stress.
The Resources are Limited
- The Veteran’s Hospital has difficulty treating the overwhelming amounts of Military and Veterans from ALL wars past and present.
- The Law Enforcement community has the taxing job of healing it’s officers from the many injuries and trauma they’ve sustained
- First Responders also sustain injuries and experience trauma though are often overlooked and have no dedicated resource to turn to for help. (also sustain injuries and live with trauma and need healing as well)
- The dependents of all our best and bravest need assistance as well. We will work to serve those that took the oath to serve others. Sharon and Staff are here to help.
