Thrive Sponsorship Opportunities
All of us are aware that there is a growing number of Washington County
residents in crisis. Typically, a financial crisis is what drives them
through Valor's doors and we are having trouble keeping up with demand.
Most are looking for help with physical needs—a roof over their head,
food in their belly, and clothes on their back. The majority do not have
enough money to cover even their basic needs and their emotional and
spiritual states are contributing factors.
Statistics reveal that 5 of the 10 leading causes of disability worldwide are mental problems (major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorders, alcohol use, and obsessive-compulsive disorders) and nearly 90% of those with severe mental illness are unemployable. These conditions start in the mind, take root in the heart, and then manifest in actions. Without intervention, many will continue in crisis. That is why we need your help NOW more than ever to change lives!
At Valor, we know that it takes time and effort to reach stability. THRIVE helps our clients understand the way to overcome their unique challenges is to evaluate where they are today as a first step toward growth and advancement. From there, we help them to know that positive change rarely comes without the need to make some sacrifices and difficult decisions. They have to decide who they want to become after their initial crisis is over. Where is there area for growth? Then, we help them make a plan of action and choose the right people to support them on their journey. We also help them acknowledge their passion for reaching their goals so they don't give up.
THRIVE is built squarely on these concepts and regularly shows that one can improve their quality of life and achieve self-sufficiency with the support of others. YOU have a chance to make a difference by supporting an organization who has been recognized as a leader in finding long-term solutions, not quick fixes, to the challenges faced by those most affected.
