Our Mission

"FIGHTING FOR THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR US".

Curtis experienced nearly 18 years of horrible addiction to opioids and psychotropic medications that nearly destroyed his family in addition to undergoing 8 major neck/back surgeries that nearly took his life. The Brown’s struggled for years to find real answers, good doctors, logical solutions and a small glimmer of hope. In God’s perfect timing their prayers were answered and their very dark medical hell came to a screeching halt yielding itself to true answers, proper medical care and complete freedom from addiction. Out of their struggle, they birthed the Curtis Brown Foundation. The foundation helps veterans and their families get the physical, mental, medical (surgical, traditional and natural) and spiritual tools needed to properly address injury/chronic pain and ultimately overcome PTSD, addiction, anxiety and depression.

The Curtis Brown Foundation is honored to have teamed up with Memorial Hermann Hospital of greater Houston, numerous doctors/surgeons, acupuncturists, chiropractors, counselors, massage therapists, and local churches. The Curtis Brown Foundation serves as a beacon of hope, health and healing for all Fort Bend and Brazoria County veterans and their families.

The Brown’s truly believe that for most people healing can and will take place once given the right tools, proper care and an environment to heal. Curtis has started a “Battlefield Connection Connect Group” at Sugar Creek Baptist Church (Currently offered at their Sugar Land campus but will be expanding to all campuses in the near future). Battlefield Connection Groups are available for ALL veterans and spouses (including those who are widowed or divorced). Spouses of veterans are always welcome regardless of whether or not the veteran is present. Battlefield Connection Groups are on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. at Sugar Creek Baptist Church located at 13223 Southwest Freeway in Sugar Land, TX 77478. in the Adult Ministry Building Room 260, Sunday mornings at 11:00.

The Curtis Brown Foundation is all about providing tools to help veterans, their families and community overcome life's struggles. We also provide a weekly radio show “Battlefield Connections”on KKHT FM 100.7 and a weekly YouTube video series “Beyond The Battlefield...Overcoming Life’s Landmines.” We are truly blessed to have numerous leaders and celebrities on our shows sharing their stories of struggles and their journey of how they overcame. We also have Curtis’ personal story that is on Amazon’s best reads. “God Is Bigger, His Amazing Rescue From Abuse, Addiction, PTSD, Divorce and Despair” was written by Curtis along side New York Times Best Selling Author David Gregory.

The following statistics on veterans is heartbreaking to say the least. Twenty-two veterans take their own lives daily to suicide that stems from PTSD, addiction, depression and anxiety. It is predicted that in the next ten years that 650,000 veterans will die due to addiction to opioids and/or psychotropic medications. If you do the math, this is an astounding number of American heroes lives lost. The numbers look like this: 22 veteran suicides at day is a total of 8,030 lives lost a year x 10 years = 80,300 soldiers that have committed suicide in ten years. I want to remind you that this doesn’t even include the 650,000 that are predicted to lose their lives due to opiod and psychotropic medication addiction over that ten years. Sadly this brings to total of lives lost due to suicide and/or addiction to 730,300 American hero deaths. We can make a difference together!

Our Vision

The Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, is the largest and most prestigious VA Medical Center in the country. The DeBakey VA serves as the primary health care provider for 150,000+ veterans from all over the country. Therefore, we have an incredible opportunity to impact not just Houston area and Texas veterans and their families but also veterans and their families from all over the nation who have come here for their care. Within one year Houston will be home to the highest number of veterans in the US.

Our vision is to obtain a property that will offer them the following:

  • A property that is within 1 hour driving distance of Houston that will offer a
    wide variety of things for the veterans and their families to enjoy.
  • Single story dwelling or elevator for access if multi-level structure to allow
    easy access for all veterans including those with disabilities.
  • Swimming pool on the grounds for their enjoyment and ability to beat the
    Texas heat in the event they are hurting and prefer to just relax.
  • Ideally, the property will offer rooms for the veterans and their families that
    are separate from the main home providing desired privacy during their stay.
  • In addition to the rooms for the veterans the property would also have
    additional living space for the welcoming person(s)/care takers to live on and
    manage the property ensuring guest enjoyment.
  • The grounds would provide ample space for veterans and their families to
    enjoy various outdoor entertainment/activities while providing a peaceful,
    relaxing, beautiful place for them & their families to stay free of charge.

The property would allow anyone currently serving or retired from any branch of service to enjoy a vacation/getaway that they may otherwise not be able to afford. It would also be available for the encouragement of spouses and children who need to de-stress while their loved ones are actively serving.

As many of you are aware, most veterans live on a fixed income and sadly have to look outside the VA for their care. Outside healthcare costs today are astronomical and can really take a toll on a families finances making planning a vacation impractical and out of reach for many of them. This is why we need your support.
