We can’t express how happy, inspired and honored we are at the Kiloby Center for Recovery to be chosen by the Volunteers of America (Greater LA) to bring our mindfulness approach to thousands of people who would not otherwise have access to mindfulness. Our mindfulness approach brings peace, well-being and freedom and dissolves and uproots trauma, self-esteem issues and limiting beliefs that hold people back in their lives. We are rolling out this new partnership with VOA in January 2018.
Volunteers of America touches the lives of more than 1.4 million people in over 400 communities in 46 states as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico each year. Since 1896, VOL has supported and empowered America’s most vulnerable groups, including veterans, at-risk youth, LGBTQ, the elderly, men and women returning from prison, homeless individuals and families, people with disabilities, and those recovering from addictions.
Scott Kiloby, the Kiloby Center and Scott’s team of certified mindfulness facilitators will be working directly with these populations as well as training employees at VOL in LA to help them bring mindfulness into many different areas of VOA in the next few years including VOA’s teen program (TAY), residential Veteran’s Center and other programs. The VOA is also working to bring our mindfulness work to vets whose treatment is funded by the VA. This means many war vets will now have access to our groundbreaking PTSD/trauma approach.
This is one of our proudest moments at the Kiloby Center. Our mission for 2018 and beyond is to help those who cannot afford treatment or mental health services. Our partnership with the VOA is yet another step in the direction of providing a never-before-seen broad access to mindfulness for those who do not otherwise have access.
Thank you President Bob Pratt and everyone else at VOA for this wonderful opportunity to spread the love and peace to those who so desperately need it!
