OPERATION RESTORATION

A faith-based initiative to insure that Military Servicemen/Women and their families receive mental and emotional support through therapeutic and educational services by the ministry of Lost and Found Inc.

THE NEED IS GREAT
(Some Statistics for Consideration)

  • Posttraumatic Stress for the veteran deployed once is estimated at 30% *
  • Clinical Depression for male veterans who have PTSD is nearly 48% *
  • Separation Anxiety hits every family of a deployed soldier **
  • Bereavement/Grief has come to affect just under 4000 families of fallen soldiers deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq since the start of these engagements ***
  • At least 29,038 U.S. troops have been wounded in action during their deployment in Afghanistan and Iraq ***
  • Infidelity has become an increasingly common issue for the soldier and spouse ****
  • Substance abuse and violence is prevalent in a large percentage of veterans returning from theaters overseas *****
  • Suicide plagues our veterans as well as our active military ******

The effects of ‘war’ and lengthy time away from ‘home and hearth’ are tragic and sustaining.

WHAT WE ARE DOING ABOUT IT

As Nehemiah looked out over the pervasive destruction of the walls of the holy city of Jerusalem, he wept. Through the course of time, his vision of rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem were about more than a construction mission, it was that of the restoration of the heart and spirit of a people who needed restoration. Like this great prophet, Lost and Found Inc. wants to ‘see’ the need of the defenders of our freedoms and act to support them in a meaningful way!

Operation Restoration will provide for our veterans whose lives have been swept into disarray as they have protected us through their service to God and Country. Operation Restoration seeks to restore the heart and spirit of our wounded warriors and their families. Operation Restoration is accomplished through specialized, professional intervention and therapy, along with a unique array of ongoing helps offered by our ministry.

Retreats for the families of our military personnel are being planned on an ongoing basis. Click Here to find out more.

WHY IS RESTORATION IMPORTANT?

To understand the “life” of service required to meet the challenges of war, we must respect the ‘story’ of those who have been there and understand that maladaptive behaviors are often the product of ‘survival skills’ used under the most terrible conditions imaginable. Sometimes these ‘combat skills’ become roadblocks to “healthy” living in a normal society. Families of returning military personnel have a hard time fathoming the heighten sense of vigilance, recurrent flashbacks, high anxiety, depression and other syndromes associated with the intense camaraderie enjoined in combat conditions.

Our veterans coming to us for hope, healing, and restoration will be treated with the utmost respect and excellence. Treatment modalities can be augmented by non-traditional services to identify chemical imbalances in the system, assess nutritional needs, and clear toxins from the body. Our Center for Health and Healing provide for these needs.

For those contacts outside our immediate catchment area, we will endeavor to meet their needs by helping to resource in their location as possible. “Home Front Heroes” (www.homefrontheroes.us) is a vital part of our collaboration with other ‘like-minded’ groups that are in the front lines, providing all manner of basic necessities to our veterans.
