Nation’s Largest Hero Savings Program Homes For Heroes® Is Now Available To Local Miami Heroes

MIAMI, ( PR Submission Site ) April 8, 2019 – Inspired by the tragic events of 9/11, Homes for Heroes® was started in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the beginning of 2002. In 2009, it grew to become a national organization that has since helped over 20,000 heroes and given back over $32 million.

Homes for Heroes’ mission is to provide extraordinary savings to heroes who provide extraordinary services to our nation and its communities every day. Heroes include firefighters, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare workers, EMS and teachers.

Homes for Heroes is comprised of affiliate real estate and lending specialists across the country along with local and national businesses committed to providing Hero Rewards, which are easy ways for heroes to save significant money on a home. When working with Homes for Heroes real estate and lending specialists specifically, heroes are able to receive significant savings when they buy, sell or refinance a home. Hero Rewards is our way to say “Thank You.”

“We’re committed to giving back, serving and saying thank you to our local community heroes because they do so much to make our great community what it is today. They tirelessly serve and sacrifice for us so we feel it’s the right thing to do, and we’re excited to be able to give back and say ‘Thank You’ in such a meaningful and positive way,” says Miguel Perez, local Homes for Heroes real estate professional in Miami.

About Homes for Heroes

Homes for Heroes Inc. was established shortly following the tragic events of 9/11 as a way to give back and say “Thank You” to our nation’s heroes. Homes for Heroes is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate specialists, lending specialists and local businesses who provide easy ways for firefighters, law enforcement, military (active, reserves and veterans), healthcare workers, EMS and teachers to save money when buying, selling or refinancing a home. Every time a hero uses Homes for Heroes for their real estate transactions, they are helping heroes in need because Homes for Heroes donates a portion of their earnings to the Homes for Heroes Foundation, a nonprofit that provides assistance to heroes in need.

AHP Launches Revised Wrap Book for Veterans and People in Active Service

Sudbury, Massachusetts, United States ( PR Submission Site ) – Human Potential Press (HPP), the publishing arm of Advocates for Human Potential, Inc., (AHP) today announced the launch of an update to the 2007 book Wellness Recovery Action Plan for Veterans and People in the Military. The brand-new publication, Wellness Recovery Action Plan for Veterans, Active Service Members, and Military in Transition, is now available for preorder and will begin shipping August 17, 2018.

As WRAP’s customer base of individuals, facilitators, trainers, and organizations continues to grow, so has a need for evolving materials. WRAP for Veterans, Active Service Members, and Military in Transition has new information and tools specifically for the needs of active duty military members, Veterans, and reservists. Supported by the key concepts, values, and framework of WRAP, this book addresses major issues experienced by today’s Veterans and service members, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), substance use, trauma, homelessness, and suicide.

“WRAP for Veterans, Active Service Members, and Military in Transition applies recognized principles and practices to challenges and situations unique to members of the armed forces,” comments Mary Jaffe, WRAP Business Manager. “Veterans and service members using WRAP have reported experiencing better overall physical and mental health, reduced use of substances, better pain management, improved sleep, and lower levels of stress, among other benefits.”

WRAP for Veterans, Active Service Members, and Military in Transition presents a proven process to help individuals improve the quality of their lives by incorporating wellness strategies into daily life both during and after military service. This book now features important framing information about how Veterans and people on active duty in the military can use WRAP; real-life stories from Veterans and active military personnel, including women Veterans and people of color; information on transitioning to civilian life after military service; and a dedicated section that directs Veterans to additional resources.

A new foreword from U.S. Army Veteran and Advanced Level WRAP Facilitator, Robert M. Leavy, Former Spc. ARMY 13B, provides readers with an introduction to WRAP from someone who has shared many of the same challenges. “Using WRAP doesn’t mean I have all my issues fixed—it just means that I acknowledge them, and I am taking action by facing them with a plan,” says Leavy. “Putting a spotlight on your problems, bringing them into the light, and facing them head-on is the only way to have power over them. WRAP has taught me how to live the healthiest life I possibly can by giving me the tools to face those issues instead of letting them run my life.”

WRAP is used around the world as a powerful process anyone can use to get well, stay well, and make their life the way they want it to be. Originally developed in 1997 by a group of people who were working to overcome their own mental health challenges, WRAP is now used extensively by people in all kinds of circumstances and by healthcare and mental health systems all over the world to address a variety of physical, mental health, and life issues.

AHP acquired the full line of WRAP and Recovery Books products in July 2016, including 30+ books, manuals, curricula, and other educational products on wellness and recovery, along with websites, a mobile app, and elearning curricula.

Updates to many products in the WRAP catalog of books, recordings, and other products will be rolled out through 2018 and beyond. WRAP recently unveiled the first substantive update in 20 years to its flagship Wellness Action Recovery Plan (WRAP) or “Red Book.” WRAP has also undergone a branding revival, resulting in a fresh new identity for this product line. The WRAP community will also see this new identity throughout WRAP communications, including the email newsletter, website, online bookstore, and social media presence.

Wellness Recovery Action Plan for Veterans, Active Service Members, and Military in Transition is available for immediate preorder at www.wrapandrecoverybooks.com. The new books will ship by August 17, 2018.
