Eric and his team have partnered with Veterans Community Project to build tiny homes for homeless veterans. The non-profit builds permanent structures in these communities with the aim to end veteran homelessness this decade! After being featured on CNN and NBC, 3,000 cities have reached out to implement the system.
In May 2019, with the ADPI team, Eric founded ADPI H.E.L.P.S. (Helping Everyone Live Post-Stress), which is a PTSD and addiction support group for veterans, where the aim is simple, “Save One Life”. This is accomplished through monthly Zoom calls, blog participation, and private communication as an instant walkie-talkie style lifeline.
Eric’s personal mission statement is to “educate, empower and to help people grow”. Through his trials in the military, he has clarity that anything is possible if you THINK it is. Mind over matter.
