Operation Restore Point

What is Operation Restore Point?

Operation Restore Point is our peer support respite program. We are working to build a retreat where First Responders and Military service members can go to decompress with their peers.

A “Restore Point” is a technical term that allows you to restore your computer’s operating system to that of a previous point in time, which can be used to recover from system malfunctions or other problems.

Our respites are non-clinical and do not offer services like medication management. Instead they provide welcoming, healing environments where guests are given peer support and space to heal and recover. Guests leave with a recovery plan, connections to resources, and renewed hope in their own abilities.

Concept Art for Betties Bombers Operation Restore Point Respite Center.

The 5 day retreat includes

  • Round trip airfare
  • Meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
  • Airport Transportation
  • On site support and referral services
  • Peer-to-Peer group counseling
  • A gift bag filled with gaming and mental wellness items to take home
  • and MORE!

Through this program, guests will be able to connect with their peers who have had lived experiences with trauma, anxiety, depression and PTSD in a safe and welcoming environment. Caregivers are also welcome.

Eligibility for this program is limited to those who work or have worked in EMS, Fire, Police (including Corrections and Dispatchers), and the Military. Applicants must be able to show proof of service in order to qualify.

Operation Reboot

What is Operation Reboot?

Operation Reboot is the outreach and volunteer arm of the organization. Through this program we,

  • Host social meetups to connect with and provide support to our first responder and military communities
  • Attend events at relevant venues to spread awareness and end stigma
  • Provide educational resources and support to First Responders and Military service members who may be struggling with mental wellness issues
  • Advocate and work with other nonprofit organizations to promote suicide prevention awareness and improve mental wellness with video gaming

Anyone who supports First Responders and Veterans, has an interest in advocating for mental health and suicide prevention is welcome to participate in this program.

Our goal is to provide resources and a social outlet geared towards the First Responder and Veteran who are often overlooked, or may be afraid to ask for help for fear of repercussion or stigma.

We support those who support us.
