About legacy place society
Our Peace Officers, Fire Fighters, Emergency Medical Services, 911 Dispatch, Veterans and Military Personnel face frustrating and devastating situations on the work front and then find themselves working hard to find a balanced life perspective on the home front.
Legacy Place Society exists to build family resiliency and legacies to withstand the unique challenges faced by Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical / Fire Fighter Services, 911 Dispatchers, Veterans and Military Personnel. The very nature of daily work within these professions can create emotional and physical havoc and the vicarious trauma, ptsd, operational or occupational stress injuries and the psychological and physiological demands of the profession can become major stressors on the individual and their family.
Often what is faced as a family as they try to understand and be supportive during recovery while maintaining family stability is a wide variety of challenges. Legacy Place Society does not replace employee assistance programs or professional medical counsel.
What defines us is how our work is done as we act as a bridge of possibilities between the individual, their place of work and their families. Legacy Place Society is a registered charity that promotes a shared responsibility approach that encourages the individuals and their families to steer themselves through the everyday adversity, reframe the difficult realities of the profession and to encourage daily behaviors that are conducive to recharge and re-engage with themselves, their families and work place.
“Provide empathetic support that builds resiliency individually and within our First Responder and Military Families.”
That all First Responder and Military Personnel have user friendly access to resources to build resiliency and reduce the stigma of mental health concerns as an individual and/or as a family.
