“If we look to the answer ‘As to why, for so many years, we achieved so much, prospered as no other people on earth?’ It was because, here in this land, we unleashed the energy and individual genius of man to a greater extent than has ever been done before.

Freedom and the dignity of the individual have been more available and assured, here than in any other place on earth.

The price for this freedom at times has been HIGH – but we have never been unwilling to pay that price.  Those who say that we are in a time when there are no hero’s – they just don’t know where to look.   The slopping hills of Arlington National Cemetery with its row upon row of simple white markers bearing crosses or stars of David – they add up to only a tiny fraction of the price that has been paid for our freedom…

~President Ronald Reagan

The Occupational Safety Training Institute (OSTI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which was formed in 2006 with the intent of providing quality hands-on training for safety professionals.  In the last few years we have recognized the need to assist our displaced* veterans.  Therefore, we have developed a program to help our nation’s forgotten heroes.  Programs are designed to be complete in 12 months.  On average, participants will have a minimum of 1500 hours of education and experience upon completion.

*We have chosen the phrase “Temporary Displaced” over “Homeless” believing that the phrase is more positive; whereas the phrase “Homeless” denotes and has the appearance of a negative image.

If you would like to assist these heroes to a positive path for a more financial stable future while enhancing their ability to become productive members and make positive contributions to society / community; wherever they choose to reside and work, please donate today.
