An Opportunity to

HELP VETERANS REBUILD THEIR LIVES

Because...

  • 54% of post-9/11 veterans who incurred an injury or illness suffer from PTSD
  • 1 in 10 Veterans are diagnosed with substance use disorder
  • Veterans that abuse drugs or alcohol are twice as likely to die by suicide than other Veterans 
  • 20 Veterans die by suicide every day
  • They sacrificed so that we can be free

THEY DESERVE THE LIFE THEY GENEROUSLY RISKED FOR US

A PLACE TO HEAL

Continuum has helped Veterans and other adults in mental health crisis go from rock bottom to recovering and living a healthier, promising, and sustainable future for more than 50 years.

Continuum provides them with the supportive home environment they need to heal the whole person while undergoing psychiatric or substance use treatment.  

Our case management helps each Veteran create and execute a plan and obtain the critical resources (such as housing, training, etc.) they will need to build a sustainable future.  

Our peers have lived experience in recovery, and offer insight and guidance that Veterans can relate to and respect. They also help Veterans get to therapy and healthcare appointments, and help make connections in the community.

Veterans attend evening group sessions with fellow Veterans to reinforce daytime treatment. They provide support and comfort for each other. Continuum provides the community-based environment and a comprehensive set of supportive services that hospitals and treatment centers just cannot offer.

94% of the Veterans complete the program
65% of the Veterans who come to us were homeless 
100% of those who complete the program find an appropriate living arrangement upon discharge from our program

THE NEED

The Veterans Affairs Hospital and Continuum have partnered closely for nearly 10 years. Continuum provides residential services, case management, peer support, and treatment for Veterans experiencing a mental health crisis while the VA provides psychiatric treatment.

The VA is closing the residential component of their program designed for Veterans challenged with significant PTSD and/or substance use challenges. They have contracted with Continuum to once again be their residential and case management partner, while the VA provides psychiatric treatment to Veterans in PTSD or substance use crisis. This expansion means that Continuum’s Veterans Recovery Services Program will be able to serve more than 300 Veterans broken by crisis to move forward on a sound and lifelong journey in recovery.

We are delighted to serve this mission to help more Veterans to stand tall on the road of lifelong recovery.

After individuals stabilize after a mental health or substance use crisis, they often revert back to old feelings, behaviors and habits that got them to crisis in the first place.

To break that cycle, they need something in addition to therapy.  An expertly supported living environment while going through therapy can bridge them firmly to the next step of truly rebuilding their lives.

Because of our experience, expertise, and success, we’ve been asked by Veterans Affairs to partner with them by tripling our annual capacity so that we can help more than 350 Veterans to recover from a mental illness, PTSD or substance use crisis and move on to a more sustainable lifelong recovery. It works.

Your help is needed to make this happen. We must purchase, renovate, and furnish two separate beautiful houses to help Veterans achieve long term sustainable recovery from chronic PTSD and/or substance use disorder.

OUR GOAL: $1,000,000

Help us raise $1,000,000 in the next 6 months so that 300 more Veterans can move forward from crisis to a lifelong sustainable journey of recovery. Here is where the money will go:

Purchase Home for PTSD Veterans:              $500,000
Renovations for new Substance Use Home:  $250,000
Furnishings, IT, Equipment for both Homes:  $100,000
Start-up costs for the first 4 months:              $150,000

Total Funding Needed: $1,000,000
