Stronger Together Alliance
A subsidiary of Reflective Life Ministries
The formation of a national grassroots movement, STRONGER TOGETHER ALLIANCE (STA), with the purpose of uniting Christ-centered organizations across the United States whose objectives are to aid those living in the shadow of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder).
The definition of alliance is a merging of
efforts or interests by persons, families, states, organizations. 1
Statistics show that 8% of the population of the United States, approximately 25 million people, suffer from PTSD. As a result, numerous Christ-centered organizations have formed across America to help men and women dealing with the problems associated with PTSD. In many cases, these groups operate independently, yet have the same goals. Uniting these organizations through the STA brings strength, fortitude, and energy to the whole.
The movie STRONGER is a bridge to a greater purpose - The STRONGER TOGETHER ALLIANCE, which has a
1. STA Website - At the end of the STRONGER movie, while the credits roll, the audience is encouraged to visit the STA website. This website basically serves as a hub or base station for vetted organizations that fit the STA guidelines. Upon approval, Reflective Life Ministries adds these organizations to the list of member groups. Plans are to have a map of the United States on the website. When clicking on a state, a list of approved organizations and their contact information appears. In short, STA serves as a connector among organizations as well as for those living in the shadows of PTSD.
2. STA COMMUNITY GROUPS - STRONGER emphasizes the importance of community. Banning together results in strength, growth, and stability. We encourage communities to form a STRONGER TOGETHER ALLIANCE among Christ-centered organizations who work with veterans, first-responders, burn survivors, sexually abused, domestic violence, and more. The STA provides unity not only with the organizations but also within the community.
3. STA SUPPORT GROUPS - A group of like-minded people in a community, church, workplace, or school coming together in support for veterans and first-responders in their communities. STA Groups serve as a prayer support for those who put their lives on the line every day to protect and defend our nation, communities, homes, and rights.
STRONGER THE MOVIE
Brings awareness to PTSD and the hope and healing found in Jesus. STRONGER explores a soldier’s battle with PTSD. As he struggles to recover from his injuries and fit back into the civilian world, he learns he can’t do it by himself.
