Boots on the Ground NY will be narrowing their focus this winter.

Aug 18, 15 Boots on the Ground NY will be narrowing their focus this winter.

Boots on the Ground NY will be narrowing their focus this winter. Our main areas of concentration will once again be Hospital visits and our in house group programs.

BOTGNY not only brings supplies to hospitalized Veterans in the VA, but also to the homeless shelter located on the grounds as well. Our visits are more than a supply drop, we also bring a prepared meal and /or snacks and sit down break bread and talk with our Veterans, making sure they know they are not forgotten,

Our in house programs are: Tuesday night peer support meetings open to all Veterans of any era, it’s a round table type group allowing anyone present to talk about anything on their mind, lean on their Brothers/Sisters, or just listen to others and maybe add their input. There is always chow and coffee/ refreshments available. Wednesday night is a 12 step support group with a NA format but open to any Veteran with any type of substance abuse or addiction issues. Both Tuesday and Wednesday meeting begin promptly at 1930 hours, with doors opening at 1900. The food pantry is always available during group hours.

We need assistance in keeping the word out there to Veterans about the availability of these meetings.

We are still looking to create a family/spouse type group for family members of Veterans, and are still fishing to see what the turnout would be (if you’re interested in attending a group like this message us). Open house Veteran PTSD / Suicide lectures and programs will also begin in the fall for a 3 part series again.

We will also be listing our Fall/Winter event schedule shortly.
