FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
First Responders Resiliency, Inc.® (FRRI) has launched its first annual fundraising campaign titled Honor a Responder. The Honor a Responder campaign is part of a Capital Campaign to raise funds for the development of the premier First Responders Resiliency Center™ in Cotati, California.
Donors can choose to Honor any current or former Responder in their lives: law enforcement, fire, EMS, dispatch. During the checkout process, donors can choose to send an eCard to their honoree to let them know a donation was made in their name. First responders and their families have experienced unprecedented strain during the pandemic, a situation compounded locally, where dangerous and destructive wildfires rage for months each year. The life-changing supportive services offered by FRRI through in-person and on-line conferences are needed more now than ever.
All funds raised from the Honor a Responder campaign will go towards the development of the premier First Responders Resiliency Center™ in Cotati, California. The Phase 1 goal of the Capital Campaign is $2 million which includes land preparation, architectural plans, and permits.
The First Responders Resiliency Center™ will not only be a home for the training they offer, but will also provide real-time access to wellness and support services so desperately needed by first responders and their families. The Center will include, but is not limited to:
- trauma therapists
- addiction and recovery support
- physical and mindfulness programs
- conference lecture hall
- equine assisted therapy
- cancer support
- family services department
- preventative holistic modalities
