New Guardian Connect (G-Connect) Program

10 January 2023

Happy New Year Guardians:
We're excited to announce our new program, Guardian Connect (G-Connect). We've united together several Veteran & first 
responder programs in the Hudson Valley, including our own core programs (Another Summit, Boots & Paws, and Guardian 
Encore), FIRST LINE, and the NYS Joseph P. Dwyer Vet2Vet program of Putnam.
G-connect is a community built by guardians, for guardians. With hundreds of years of combined experience wearing all different kinds of guardian uniforms, we've created a program that offers opportunities, resources, and support that meets the needs 
of a diverse population of guardians. Moreover, we understand that we can't do this alone, and our ability to work with other
veteran & first responder organizations is critical. So, we’ve also chartered a course to improve our relationships and strengthen 
our partnerships with similar organizations across the Hudson Valley and beyond that also provide services and opportunities to 
our guardians.
Here's a quick overview of what G-connect entails:
Peer Support Gatherings- are led by one of our Guardian Revival Peer Leaders. Peer support gatherings are open forums and offer an 
opportunity to learn, listen, or share what's on your mind. We often share and discuss existing and new resources for mental health & wellness available to guardians. Our groups meet regularly in person and virtually, either monthly or weekly, and include the following categories:
• First Line (Law Enforcement)
• First Line (Fire & EMS)
• Vet2Vet (Veterans & Active Military)
• Women Guardians
• LGBTQ+ Guardians
Guardian Experience Series- Recurring opportunities to gather together for recreation and education and to build community across various areas of interest. These experiences bring guardians together to share talents, ideas, and values and to promote community, meaningful relationships, and a shared sense of purpose & mission. Our Experience Series categories include the following & more:
• Health & Wellness
• Art
• Music RX
• Outdoor RX
• Canine RX
• Writing
• Professional Development
Guardian Talk-Line - guardian peer support line available 24/7 to all guardians. While this isn’t a crisis hotline for mental health support or 
suicide prevention, the Guardian Talk-Line is a line to connect with one of our trained and certified peer leaders for peer support, resources, 
or just to talk. 845-745-0088
Community Gatherings - we offer several community events throughout the year, from baseball games and BBQs to our annual Veterans 
Chow Down. All our gatherings are free of charge and offer a family friendly environment!
Joining G-connect is free. By simply signing up, you will become a part of our 
guardian family. We'll keep you updated on the latest events, opportunities, and 
many free resources! Our mission at G-connect is simple - to keep our guardians
