Supporting First Responders, Veterans and Military Personnel through:
Providing a confidential crisis response by telephone that facilitates connection to professional and peer support.
Providing confidential and safe transitional housing (individually or as a family) for their well-being, security and access to professional support, so that they can recover quickly from a broad range of serious difficulties.
There is increased awareness of the secondary impact trauma has on children, especially those with a parent diagnosed with Operational Stress Injuries (such as PTSD) from service related experiences.
The WWC Warrior Kids program’s clinical framework pulls from resilience theory, trauma-informed practices, and child-centred play therapy and is designed to capture effective evaluation measures. Their goal is for kids to build positive relationships with peers, gain knowledge of the injury, and develop new coping skills that will help them grow and thrive.

To Serve and Connect is a non-profit society that was created by and is ran by Lauren Cleveland. Lauren is an ex-corrections officer who is married to a police officer.

Lauren's experience as a first responder and being married to one - offers insight into both sides. She is dedicated to helping spouses create safe places for their partner to land, offer tools and strategies to build resilience and have a community of people around that will demonstrate support.

The Virtual Effect
Impact events will bring you purposeful discussion on important topics, including Mental Health and Human Trafficking, wrapped in a beautiful evening out.
When people know better they do better and it is with that belief that the commitment to impact events began.
We all know that knowledge is power, so what better way to educate ourselves than in a safe space surrounded by inspiring people and topic authorities.
Impact events happen quarterly and are open to everyone, all ages, all genders are welcome!
