On December 13, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation announced that it has awarded the Peak Military Care Network (PMCN), a PPACG initiative, a $195,000 grant. According to a statement by the foundation, PMCN is among 18 coalitions across the United States that have been awarded funds as part of their $3.6 million Roadmaps to Health Community Grants. PMCN is the only Colorado organization honored with the award this year and was chosen from a pool of more than 400 applicants nationwide. In response to the announcement, Major General Wes Clark, interim PMCN Advisory Board Chair, said, “This funding will enable us to provide a new level of coordinated care and support for the men and women who have served us so well.”
Eduardo Baller, among the veterans attending a recent demonstration of the Network of Care website at Pikes Peak Community College, said that the website will help him navigate the information and resources he is seeking on such issues as education and employment. Mr. Baller was also featured in a KOAA story on the launch of the Peak Military Care Network.
Finding help for all of Eduardo’s needs was a daunting prospect for Eduardo, but the Peak Military Care Network and its partner agencies provide the broad range of services to assist him and his growing family. With community resources now accessible, Eduardo has a job and is attending classes at Pikes Peak Community College. And he has big plans for the future. “This is just one chapter in my life; it’s not my book, just one chapter. I have hundreds of more pages to write.”
