Bastion Community of Resilience Leaders and Community Philanthropists Gather to Support Phase 2 Completion Efforts
Once completed, Phase 2 will add 20 more residential homes open to warriors and their families who are in need of Bastion’s unique supportive community and overall wellness services. Preference will be given to residents with traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
“Bastion is deeply indebted to those who have supported our mission to build a supportive, intentional community for returning warriors and their families,” said Dylan Tête, founder and Executive Director of Bastion. “The Building Bastion Cocktail Party was a great success and all funds raised will be vital to Phase 2’s completion and our continued efforts to meet the needs of those who serve so bravely.”
The evening’s event also celebrated the success of Phase 1, as it is fully operational and includes 38 apartment homes and a wellness center which serve the community of 76 residents, 29 of which are children. With the planned completion of Phase 2, Bastion looks to further expand its capabilities for supporting and empowering New Orleans’ returning warriors.
Catering for the event was provided by Palate New Orleans and Dave Gooch from Galatoire’s. Decorations and flowers were provided courtesy of Mary Funderburk and Steve Baker. Music was provided by the Dr. Brice Miller Trio.
