Operation Not Forgotten and Code Blue are programs of Life Renewed, a 501(c) (3) organization.  Life Renewed was incorporated in 2007, and received tax exempt status in 2010.  Operation Not Forgotten delivers resources to promote healthy mental and emotional well-being, and assesses at risk behaviors. Our purpose is to measurably enhance and improve a  quality of life and functioning in four areas: mental, emotional, social, and spiritual.



Program Description

Vet Life and Code Blue Communities are networks of local community weekly support meetings - care groups, the buddy system, face to face - offering tools necessary to assess current levels of functioning and determine what, if any, help or coaching may be needed. The care groups will be structured as peer based support groups - a tried and proven model - the most effective intervention in the United States. It is important to mention the strict adherence to anonymity and confidentiality; no rank or employment position; no last names; no requirement to talk until you are ready; discussions and topics do not leave the room and no command or court mandated attendance.  All Meetings are at no cost to participants.
