Operation-Initiative Foundation Workshop

ROCKY POINT, NY – On Saturday, April 14, 2018 Legislator Anker attended the 2018 Holistic Healing Workshop for Veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Mild Traumatic Injuries at the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rocky Point. Hosted by the Operation-Initiative Foundation, the workshop brought awareness and support to veterans and families of Veterans suffering from PTSD. The workshop also provided veterans information about the treatments and support available to those who suffer from PTSD or other traumatic brain injuries. In attendance were representatives from multiple medical and veterans groups.

“Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a serious mental condition affecting many of our veterans,” said Legislator Anker. “In order to help those afflicted, Operation-Initiative Foundation does a great job of providing the important resources to support veterans and their caretakers.”

The Operation-Initiative Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide awareness, information, services, and support to veterans living on Long Island diagnosed with PTSD. Founded by Louis Falco, Operation-Initiative seeks to continuously advance its programs through collaborations with nonprofit organizations and for-profit businesses to explore innovative solutions for problems faced by veterans and their caregivers.
