Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Grant
In September 2022 the Adaptive Performance Center was awarded the Staff Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Grant.
Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Grant Program (SSG Fox SPGP) enables the VA to provide resources toward community-based suicide prevention efforts to meet the needs of Veterans and their families through outreach, suicide prevention services and connection to VA and community resources. This grant program will assist in further implementing a public health approach that blends community-based prevention with evidence-based clinical strategies through community efforts. The Adaptive Performance Center is the only program of its kind to receive the SSG Fox Grant offering physical fitness as a way to effectively treat disabilities, both visible and invisible. The mission of the Adaptive Performance Center is to eliminate veteran suicide through the use of physical fitness and re-creating community.
