About the Operation-Initiative Foundation

Founded in 2013, the Operation-Initiative Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that supports veterans diagnosed as having post-traumatic stress disorder. The Foundation also provides support for the nonpaid caregivers of these veterans. It is because of the increasing need to provide cost-effective services for these veterans and their caregivers that the Foundation has formed its Outreach Transitional Center.

The Outreach Transitional Center is a division of the Operation-Initiative Foundation. The purpose of the Center is to identify veterans who are being and have been discharged from one of the branches of the U.S. military and plan to reside on Long Island. The Center will also identify the veterans’ family caregivers; whether they are currently serving as caregivers, have been caregivers, or may be doing so in the future. Through the identification of veterans and family caregivers, outreach services will be provided to veterans and their caregivers that will enable them to participate in one or more of the programs and services offered through the Center. It is through the process of identification, outreach and engagement that the Center will foster the effective and timely provisioning of programs and services with the goal to help alleviate the negative health and socioeconomic impact of PTSD on the veterans and their family caregivers.
