Fort Collins, CO. November 15, 2023- The Healing Warriors Program is honored to announce it has received a Regional Merit Grant from El Pomar Foundation’s North Regional Council for $5,000. The Healing Warriors Program focuses on factors that contribute to Veteran suicide including pain management, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Post Traumatic Stress, trauma, difficulties with sleep and more. The Healing Warriors Program uses a non-narcotic, integrative care approach to serve the healthcare needs of Veterans, active-duty military, and their families as well as Care Coordination services to assist our military families with adjunct needs such as housing, food insecurity, counseling, employment and more.
Chase Zajc, Executive Director of Healing Warriors Program said, “Our vision is a suicide free world where Veterans and their families can thrive. Achieving this requires a community of support that understands and cares deeply for the struggles Veterans and their families face. Thanks to this generous grant from the El Pomar Foundation, our community support grows larger and stronger. These funds will provide about 125 non-narcotic treatments and keep them free to the Veteran or family member. These are life-changing treatments that save lives—thanks to El Pomar for their continued support.”
