After a string of devastating events in 2015, our group of like-minded individuals realized a void in the First Responder Industry — the ability to offer mental wellness services through a confidential, judgment-free setting.
Foundation 1023 was formed February 10, 2016 and received 501c3 status from the IRS on June 10, 2016. Dedicated to the memory of Kristin McLain, a flight nurse and dear friend who lost her life in a rescue accident in Austin, TX in 2015, the Foundation was named after Kristin’s badge number, 1023.
How Foundation 1023 makes a difference
I am finally getting help for my PTSD. Thank you!
This is saving my marriage.
I am so thankful to have this resource. It is much needed.
I was involved in a shooting and was struggling horribly. This counseling helped me and my wife so very much.
The counseling I received was phenomenal and provided me with tools for this lifestyle.
My life has been spinning out of control. This is getting me grounded. With two shootings and being assigned to investigate child pornography for years, I have really needed this.
It has given me help. I needed to talk to somebody who understands about PTSD stress and years of fighting demons. This was healing to me.
Absolutely astounding! I would not have sought out help on my own if it wasn't for this program. Foundation 1023 is at the top of our list for all fundraising efforts in the future.
Going to therapy is teaching me how to survive this career. I am learning to separate myself from the emotions of the caller so that I can keep things from hitting me personally and keep things in perspective.
This is saving my life.
As a law enforcement officer, I thought I was immune. Now I know that I am resilient.
I am healing. I am going to be ok.
