Why We Are Raising Money?
The LIFE CS Phoenix Projects, INC is raising money to fund the efforts of Crestview Ranch. The Ranch is a long term PTSD, Depression and Drug and Alcohol Treatment Facility. This facility is designed as a working ranch to cater to the needs of male/females (with a concentration on United States Armed Forces Active Duty/Veterans) dealing with drug/alcohol addiction/mental health specializing in PTSD, Depression and Homelessness Issues.
All US Military persons returning home are at a higher risk of suicide than non military persons. Education and mental health treatment are essential to saving our service members lives.
There can be no excuse for our US Veterans to be suffering or homeless. This is a shameful testament as to the appreciation and value we place on the brave individuals who risked everything for the defense of our country.
Who We Help
If you or a loved one is hurting, we can help.
We help those who feel all alone, who feel helpless or hopeless, those struggling to hold on or find their place in the world again, those self medicating with drugs or alcohol to avoid dealing with their painful realities.
It took a great deal, to get where you or they are yet, it only takes one phone call to change it. We are targeting male/female veterans.
