The Give an Hour organization is an amazing nonprofit created by Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen to help veterans returning home from post-9/11 confilcts with mental health services. It relies on the generosity of potential donors like you and a large network of mental health service volunteers. I had the honor of photographing an event they hosted in Harlem a few weeks ago.
Give an Hour gets various mental health services practitioners to offer an hour of free care to a returning veteran and to also fight against the stigma of those in need seeking mental health care.
It's programs like these that are making a real impact for our veterans in the communities that they live in. Since 2005, they have worked with those who have donated countless hours in service to the brave American heroes coming home from war, protecting us and helping to create a better world.
Their website has all of the details of how you can join in the great work they do.
I love to help causes in which we believe. Are you a nonprofit professional, board member, volunteer or supporter with an upcoming event? I can help design a photography strategy for your event, whether it's capturing candid shots or portraits in front of the step-and-repeat or taking photos of speakers, lecturers or entertainers. Whether you need images for your web site, annual report, fundraising/marketing materials or for any other purpose, I can work with you to get the images to deliver your message. Get in touch here and let's get to work!
