How We Helped
In 2016, Project Sanctuary lost program participant, veteran Brian Walton, to suicide. In honor of, and in response to this tragic loss, Project Sanctuary vowed to honor Brian’s legacy by creating a dedicated peer mentorship program, which was funded by an Infinite Hero grant of $100,000.
The Walton’s Warriors Peer Mentorship Program is the only training program nationwide providing at least 10 months of strategic training on self-care, red flags, and combat-related PTSD, with a built-in support network, to help ensure peer-mentor retention and provide veterans with a new mission. In 2017, Infinite Hero provided an additional $60,000 to help build upon beta-year success by incorporating additional mentors and coaches, and launching more innovative strategies.
