The Eden Project July 2019 Newsletter

The Eden Project is a registered 501 c 3 whose mission is “to provide world class, community-based, reintegration programs for the warrior and his or her support group.”

Our Focus is on Reintegration

With little or no clear definition of reintegration for our service members, we define it as The process of regaining one’s role of self, family member, employee and community member. We achieve this by being mindful of enriched experiences and learning to incorporate them into these roles.

Did You Know…

As a returning veteran, you are entitled to a FREE one year honorary full privilege sportsman license that includes all state paid recreational hunting and fishing privileges?

Growing… Again

It has been an honor and privilege to serve our community. For the past three years, we have met with veterans and their family members in coffee shops, restaurants, and in their homes so we can meet them where they are and serve their needs. Two years ago, Grow Counseling offered us the use of office space so we could meet people who needed more privacy than a coffee shop. Now, Grow has once again come through in a huge way! Grow has offered not only private individual meeting spaces, but two large group meeting spaces for our peer programs!

In addition, thanks to Judge Thompson and his amazing team, Fayette County now has a Veteran’s Treatment Court that officially starts July 1st. An integral part of the program is the peer to peer mentoring aspect, and it is a huge honor to be able to provide this service to the courts AND our veteran community in conjunction with the amazingly supportive staff from Grow. 

There is room for you to help. If you are a veteran and would like to serve as a peer mentor, please contact us and we will get you on the team. We still seeking a few items to complete the office space such as a refrigerator, coffee sponsor, food sponsor for weekly meetings, and enduring sponsors to ensure this program continues.
