Upcoming Events

Dear Friends and Family,

As we head into the end of October, please consider joining me in another mission to support veterans with psychiatric disabilities, including PTSD.

On Sunday the 30th, I will be in Washington DC to run the Marine Corps Marathon.  I am using the occasion to raise funds for the Habitat PLUS organization in Lynn, Massachusetts. Some of you may recall that I did this same project a couple of years ago.  It was a major success, raising over $7,000. Thank you to all of you who were able to participate in that effort.

Habitat PLUS is a non-profit residential program for veterans with psychiatric disabilities. I have worked with them for years and can tell you that this is a wonderfully effective and efficient organization that delivers essential services to the veterans who need them.  If you can take a few minutes, you can read a more detailed description of what they do below.

As this is my personal fundraising project, there’s ZERO overhead.  All funds go straight from the generous donor (YOU) to the Habitat PLUS to provide housing, food, and care for the veterans housed there.  Below is more detailed information about Habitat PLUS.

If you can support this with a donation of $1 per mile (a marathon is 26.2 miles!), that would be terrific.  If you can do more, BRAVO.  If you prefer to donate to a veteran’s group or charity in your community, that’s great too.  Please let me know about it.  I have added some suggestions below.

In any event, I thank you for any good wishes and spiritual energy you can offer to this endeavor.

Best Regards,

Joe

More About Habitat PLUS:

Habitat P.L.U.S., Inc. (HP) provides supported living to psychiatrically disabled veterans, who would otherwise be homeless. HP offers a continuum of care through two living options. The Group Home provides live-in staff and a high level of supervision to veterans in the areas of activities of daily life (ADL) skills, assistance with mental health services coordination and medication supervision. Staff prepares and serves all meals family style. The second program offers graduates from the group home, who demonstrate higher skill potential, a more independent, yet still supported living environment. The veterans in this program have their apartments and receive staff support for greater skill development in the areas of ADL skills management, money management, food planning, purchasing, and preparation. All veterans must maintain medical compliance and a sober lifestyle. Both programs can be utilized as a permanent, as well as transitional, housing option.
