After 2 years of leasing a building in Key Largo with hopes of converting it into a gym free for Veterans, we ultimately used it to assist homeless Veterans. During this time we discovered the majority of the people that came to us for help were children of Veterans. We were unable to realize our dream of a gym because all of our funding went to keep the doors open. In 2017, we closed the shelter and have pursued working with existing gyms by getting memberships for service members. We are expanding to offer a weekly mindfulness group, working toward getting sponsorships for mud runs and other events for Veterans to create comradery and a community of peers helping one another. If you have an idea for a project or want to sponsor an event, please let us know.
We have been aligning ourselves with other organizations with similar goals as to not reinvent the wheel and help one another becomiing more effective in helping those that want it.
