Making a Difference

How it
came to be

“Michael’s Foundation came to be through a real life story of two parent’s losing a son to suicide, and how they transformed their grief into an inspirational veterans program. After losing their son, Michael Titus, to veteran suicide in February 2016, Kriss and Larry Titus felt the need to honor Michael’s life and his own vision: Helping veterans with their post service acclamation into the civilian world. In the year after he passed, Michael’s dream of assisting our veterans laid heavy on his parents’ hearts. The couple knew they needed to harness their grief and put it towards something uplifting and inspirational. They wanted to help other veterans and their families in a way that would leave a positive light! Kriss and Larry decided to make their son’s dream a reality, and began the path to establish Michael’s Foundation.

Kriss and Larry Titus can be found on any given Saturday for coffee & donuts (free to veterans) at the farm: petting horses, chatting with veterans, and just enjoying all that Michael’s Foundation has to offer. Cathy can be found conducting Michael’s Foundation’s core program “”Horses Empowering Heroes””, and being the magician behind the scenes of the farm. Alan is always there to be an ally for veterans seeking Veteran Benefit Guidance, or just some friendly conversation.

The Team relishes in seeing the veterans find peace and tranquillity, while they interact on the farm through the various programs  that Michael’s Foundation has to offer.
