Veterans Outreach

Started in 2008, the SHARE (Shaping Hope and Recovery Excellence) Military Initiative at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta provides comprehensive curriculum of care, specifically tailored to meet the needs of service members who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This is a customized program that is tailored to the needs of the individual. Therapies include: physical, occupational, vocational, cognitive and psychological treatment. The program includes complimentary residential housing; life coaching; therapeutic recreation; legal and financial counseling; peer support and PTSD counseling. Thanks to the very generous donations of many, including the Wounded Warrior Program, but especially Bernie Marcus and the Marcus Foundation, the SHARE program is offered to those service members at no cost. The government (VA system) does not promote or support this program. It is funded and maintained through charitable donations of individuals and organizations.

Cost per person to go through this three month program is approximately $35,000. If a client has insurance, their insurance providers pay 38 cents of every dollar’s cost of care, on average. The Shepherd Center must raise $70,000 per month to keep the program running. With the rise of suicides in our returning service members (22 per day reported), SHARE is proud that it has a zero percent suicide rate among its graduates. Please help us spread the word about SHARE Military Initiative at Shepherd Center. For more information, Visit SHARE’s website for more informationwww.shepherd.org/share.
