You Can NOT Be Replaced began in 2012 after the loss of a 7th student to suicide from our local high school. Our daughter Emily was a freshman with the first and a freshman in college for the last.
The Jordan Porco Foundation was founded in 2011 by Ernie and Marisa Porco after they lost their son, Jordan, to suicide when he was a freshman in college.
In their grief, Jordan’s parents learned the unacceptable statistics surrounding mental health and suicide in the young adult population, and decided they needed to turn their grief into action so that other families would never have to experience such a profound loss.
The Jordan Porco Foundation is committed to preventing suicide in the high school, college, and college entry student population. Through awareness, education, and innovative programming, JPF is challenging stigma around mental health and help-seeking, creating open conversations about the prevalence of suicide and mental health issues in the young adult population, and saving lives.

PTSD AND MORAL INJURY END HERE.
TRR is the ONLY organization that correctly targets Moral Injury as the key to ENDING Military Veteran suicides. Warrior Camp® is the ONLY program that directly addresses Moral Injury.
MORAL INJURY is not PTSD. IT IS NOT A DISORDER. Moral Injury results from having been trained to override the intrinsic aversion to the taking of human life. It can also occur during combat operations, when one’s actions and moral compass don’t align. It is an ethical response. Working with it is crucial to facilitating warriors’ transition from the battlefield to community. Healing Moral Injury in our nations’ veterans is key to their survival.
TRR’s Warrior Camp® – designated as a Military Service Provider by EAGALA – is FREE for Active Duty Military, Reserves, and Veterans of all eras – without regard to discharge status. Programs for First Responders are in development.
