    Veteran Camaraderie at Fountain House

    All service men and women are invited to continue the Camaraderie event that started at Fountain House on April 13, which was a big hit amongst all that joined us. The group decided to meet at least once per month. The next Camaraderie event will take place on September 21, 5-9pm. Join the fun as we come together as “the Camaraderie Platoon” to cook, eat, listen to music & share time with each other.

    Our Purpose: To have a place where service men and women of all eras:

    1. Come to meet and talk with each other;

    2. Come to cook and eat together;

    3. Come to be part of the solution;

    4. Come to receive anonymous and free mental health, if wanted;

    5. Come to heal the invisible wounds, because the possibilities are endless through self-help, peer support and camaraderie;

    6. Come to get your resume reviewed; get mock interviews and prepared for civilian job; and,

    7. Have a place in which we feel comfortable and we can call “Our Home”.

    Come join us and help us as we support you in creating the camaraderie amongst the veteran and active service community that is here to serve as a continuum of the camaraderie we had/have while in service!

    Please RSVP to Jennifer Rivera at jrivera@fountainhouse.org to ensure we have enough food for everyone!
