Hillsborough County Chapter

Since January 2017, multitudes of events have been conducted that impacted the lives of our First Responders and Military Veterans throughout the Hillsborough County area. The list below are some of the highlights from these incredible three years. The list include opportunities to train, mentor, speak, and provide a ministry of presence through visitation at work, home and the hospital. 

Pinellas County Chapter

The C2 Pinellas Chapter began in OCT 2020 and has already impacted the lives of the Largo Fire Department. From OCT to Dec, 2020, Chaplain Will Murphy, the C2 Chapter Director and CH Dan Horne, the newest C2 Chaplain, have ministered to over 250 Fire Rescue personnel, helped to support 9 First Responder Events, and have completed over 100 hours of personal development training to include the Chaplaincy Care Academy 101-301, Behavior Health Foundations, SAF-T training and CVI Program.

Chaplaincy Care Counseling Center (C4)

Developing a proactive payment plan for First Responders that cannot pay co-pay or over-all fee for services. We are working with Catrina for development of new budget for 2022 to help cover our heroes and their mental health needs. The growing list of those taking advantage of C4 services has tripled since the initial launch in April 2020. Lee West continue to work toward his licensure for his Counseling degree.

Chaplaincy Care Academy

CH 101 had 2 complete classes. We are developing the CH 501 mentorship block to begin videoing in June. We are presently working to bring on an additional C2 chaplains for HCPS-Security.

Closing Thought: 

Thanks to all our sponsors and donors for the opportunity to pour time and resources into the lives of our First responders and their families. Without you, we cannot do it!
