Too often, nonprofit organizations compete rather than collaborate. But REBOOT doesn’t work alone. That’s why we are inviting leaders from other military nonprofits to share the stage with us and spotlight the impactful ways we are working together to help military and first responder families.
They answered the call for us. Now it’s time to do the same for them.

Wednesday, May 24 – Encouragement Day
The best way to honor the fallen is to serve those who are still with us. On Encouragement Day, everyone is invited to write notes of encouragement to military and first responder families in our community. These notes will be distributed to REBOOT military and first responder healing course participants to let them know they aren’t forgotten or alone. You can offer hope with just a few supportive words. Get your whole company, church, or neighborhood involved!
