Our mission is to end the silent suffering of our nation's first responders by providing peer support and funding for treatment, recovery and psychological services in an effort to treat post traumatic stress, build resilience and end suicide.
Our founder, Nick Wilson, was a police officer for 13 years before medically retiring due to the many injuries sustained on the job. He led many long term investigations, was a SWAT Team Operator, Field Training Officer and worked at a Department of Homeland Security task force investigating terrorism activities. Due to the excessive exposure to trauma, Nick found himself with a PTSI diagnosis which led to self medication to sleep, a DUI and rehabilitation. His story of resiliency and fighting for his life is heartbreaking yet inspirational and is not unique to First Responders. Nick founded The Resiliency Project to break stigmas and give back to our First Responders so no one else has to suffer like he did in silence.
Our team consists of all First Responders and immediate family members of First Responders who have experienced and witnessed the impact of trauma. We are dedicated to being the First Responders for our First Responders.
Your support and contributions will help end the silent suffering of our First Responders. Your generous donation of all amounts, will help our First Responders so they can continue to serve and protect our communities.
