    • Support Project IREM Hope

      IREM Hope 2015

      IREM Houston is pleased to offer members and the real estate community an opportunity to support Veterans with a new program called Project IREM Hope. This community service initiative will directly benefit Camp Hope, a local PTSD Foundation facility in Northwest Houston. 
       

      Camp Hope provides interim housing for our Wounded Warriors, veterans and their families suffering from combat related PTSD in a caring and positive environment.  It also offers an intensive peer support and mentoring program for Post Traumatic Stress. In addition to temporary housing, Camp Hope offers a 90+ day PTSD recovery program in which residents: attend group lessons and support sessions with other combat veterans; conduct individual mentoring sessions with certified combat trauma mentors; participate in off-site small group interaction activities (fishing, hiking, local activities and events); and get involved with local churches, businesses and volunteer organizations to assist in their personal healing and educating the community on the invisible wounds of war. To learn more about PTSD or Camp Hope, click here.

       

      There are several ways to help:
