DeltaCorps - Bastion Community of Resilience
Bastion Community of Resilience is a nonprofit organization with an intentionally designed neighborhood in New Orleans for returning veterans and families with lifelong rehabilitative needs and volunteers. Through our powerful community model that empowers neighbors as volunteers in a warrior’s care plan, we will sustain a thriving recovery from the wounds and casualties of war. The Wellness Center will be the hub for holistic programs and alternative therapeutic modalities such as art, music, yoga, meditation and massage. Also available on site will be legal, vocational and benefits assistance, health and nutrition classes and direct access to community providers for medical and mental health needs. The Wellness Center Coordinator will directly assist in supporting and improving the physical, mental, and social well-being of the residents at Bastion by orienting them to life at Bastion, the supports available, and cultivating partnerships with on-site providers to ensure ample opportunities are available for residents to connect with needed resources. The Wellness Center Coordinator will also develop and facilitate health and nutrition classes and monthly meetings with residents.
