PTSD Foundation of America is a non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring to our combat veterans and their families with post-traumatic stress. Camp Hope provides interim housing, peer mentoring, VA support and pastoral care for our Wounded Warriors, veterans and their families suffering from combat related PTSD in a caring and positive environment. In 2012, Camp Hope opened one residential unit in Houston. They now have two units, with a third in progress. The third unit will be able to house female veterans, a first for Camp Hope.

The following members of the National Framers Council (NFC) have supported the construction of the new dormitory through cash and material contributions:

  • Panel Truss
  • UFP San Antonio
  • Simpson Strong-Tie
  • Idaho Pacific
  • Southern Fastening Systems
  • Hull Associates, LLC

“Being in the building business, we are compelled to express our charitable nature with the skills from our industry to benefit great charities like the PTSD Foundation,” stated George Hull, NFC Steering Committee Chairman and President of Hull Associates, LLC in Arlington, TX. “I would like to express sincere appreciation go to everyone involved, with special thanks to our valued vendors for their assistance with donations and coordination to make this a successful project for a very meaningful cause.”
