Thomas Bonadio, CEO and managing partner of New York Top 100 firm The Bonadio Group, recently presented a $25,000 check to CDS Monarch in Webster to benefit the nonprofit organization’s Warrior Salute program.
The program helps veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Military Sexual Trauma (MST), transition back into the civilian community through services and training that enable growth and development.
“I was recently introduced to the Warrior Salute service of CDS Monarch and immediately knew that this was an organization I wanted to support,” Bonadio stated. “Warrior Salute is a way for our community to care for the veterans who have selflessly protected our country. I believe that programs like Warrior Salute will make a difference in the transition our troops face.”
Warrior Salute staff help veterans and their families by providing comprehensive, individualized clinical services. These include individual and group mental health counseling, alternative therapies, independent living skills training, vocational rehabilitation, case management, and temporary housing as needed. Administered locally, the program is open to all U.S. veterans through an application process via self-referral or agency and partner referral with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or hospitals.
