Resurrecting Lives Foundation is a national nonprofit organization focused on preventing suicides among U.S. service members and veterans by raising awareness of and advocating treatment for undiagnosed or untreated cases of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
The foundation connects veterans and their families to resources within their communities to provide health care, education, and employment so that our veterans can have a future after military life.
Resurrecting Lives Foundation advocates for veterans with Traumatic Brain Inquiries (TBI) within their local communities, assisting their local hospitals and clinics to provide services and support to families and friends who are helping these young men and women move forward.
We actively partner with other established 501(c)(3) organizations to coordinate programs and resources such as providing job training, career opportunities and other services to TBI veterans following their treatment and during their ongoing recovery.
Resurrecting Lives Foundation is planning events in Columbus, OH, San Diego, CA and Washington, DC to raise awareness of brain health issues that contribute to veteran suicides, such Traumatic Brain Injuries and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The foundation enjoys a Gold Rating by the Guidestar Foundation, with 90 cents of every dollar being spent directly on veterans. Support our advocacy with a tax deductible gift today.
The Stand Together Flag Project
The Stand Together Flag Project will raise awareness of the brain health issues that contribute to the dramatic increase in veteran suicides. The project promotes family and community support and gratitude for service. We bring veterans out of isolation and have them connect to family and community in a ceremony of honor and healing with a movement of Patriotism for 2024. More than 750,000 Global War on Terrorism veterans struggle with TBI or PTSD issues.
The Stand Together Flag. The flag is the first 3-D art creation of U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer Joe Pisano, a renowned San Diego artist. The piece consists of a waving American flag bordered by a frame panel featuring signatures of veterans and their family members. The flag is comprised of more than 4,300 drywall screws and is an interactive piece for veterans giving family members an opportunity to remember and honor the military service of their loved ones.
Project Launch and Events. Resurrecting Lives Foundation will launch the Veterans Standing Together Across America (VSTAA) project at the National Veterans Memorial and Museum on Nov. 1, 2023, and re-dedicate the project in San Diego Nov. 11, 2023 at Liberty Station, home of Chief Pisano’s art studio.
These ceremonial signings will be followed by a yearlong journey throughout the state to various communities to evoke praise and healing for our veterans and our communities; to instill pride, patriotism, and unity. Each state will have the opportunity to receive a Pisano Artistry VSTAA 3D flag, created to reflect the state’s individual hallmarks, but fashioned to remind us all that we are united under the USA Flag.
Resurrecting Lives Foundation and PISANO Artistry intend to raise the Nation's unifying consciousness and lead our struggling Veterans to the appropriate services needed for healing and a successful future.
Please join us in this MOVEMENT - Veterans Standing Together Across America will be filled with the Virtue of Hope and Reverence; the Value of Healing and Recovery; the Vision of Honor and the Resurrection of Patriotism and Unity - under the USA FLAG. We are a charitable organization dedicated to serving our community. Our mission is to provide assistance to those in need and promote social welfare through a variety of programs and initiatives. With the help of our dedicated volunteers and generous donors, we are able to make a positive impact in the lives of many.
