Operation Revamp, Inc is an organization that is working for the veterans and military
families effected by trauma. It has been estimated that 20% of returning combat veterans
have PTSD. Suicide rates among the military exceed the national average. 25% of
the homeless population are veterans. Unemployment among returning veterans is higher
than for civilians.
Art provides an opportunity to heal from these symptoms and difficulties. We provide
the vehicle for the art.
We are offering art classes to veterans and military families. Currently, these
are offered locally in Grand Junction, Colorado but we will expand to other areas
as interest demands and funding provides.
Our Colorado headquarters has established an open studio where our participating
artists will be able to access studio space as needed.
We also assist our artists in sale of their art in our gift shop and will host other
events such as silent auctions, the wall of art and art competitions.
Drawing, painting, and sculpting help many people to reconcile inner conflicts, release
deeply repressed emotions, and foster self-awareness, as well as personal growth.
Studies have found a high rate of success in helping resolve symptoms of PTSD, Substance
Abuse, Depression and more, including symptoms of TBI.
