Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Metroport (Southlake)

Total Budget: $5,600

Areas of Focus: Peacebuilding and conflict prevention, Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health, Community economic development

Activity Type: Health: General

Summary: Grants and Service projects supporting local organizations supporting veteran transition and the disabled.

Metroport Rotary partners with local organizations to support veteran transition and the disabled to move toward positive outcomes that help individuals, families and communities deal with physical, mental and emotional disabilities that financially cripple them.

These organizations and the support provided are:

- Gallant Few, a locally-based, nationwide non-profit founded and led by Karl Monger, Metroport

Rotarian, to sponsor local veterans in rock climbing activity at a local climbing gym. This activity prevents isolation for vets suffering with social, spiritual, emotional, physical and professional adjustment issues resulting from military duty. Isolation leads to loss of purpose and hope and can have a fatal ending. GallantFew provides activities, mentoring, connections and training to assist veterans to transition successfully into civilian life. Entry level challenges help vets use leadership and teamwork skills learned in the military to create entrepreneurial businesses, join successful organizations and become valued members of the community. The work of GallantFew is directed to reduce the high rate of suicide, homelessness and isolation for veterans in the US.

- Victory Therapy Center, a locally based organization that offers the benefits of equine-assisted therapy and psychotherapy for individuals with physical, mental, or emotional disabilities and challenges. This grant will enable Victory to provide 100 to 150

equine-assisted therapy sessions for disabled children & adults that cannot afford them. These scholarships make the difference in recovery and progress for children, adults and families facing physical, mental and emotional disabilities that financially cripple them.
