Staff Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Program

Healing & wellbeing for our nation's heroes and their families


The Staff Sergeant Parker Gordon Fox Suicide Prevention Program (SSG Fox SPGP) is a community-based outreach and prevention program operated by Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas.

The program is designed to reduce suicide risk and improve mental health and wellbeing for veterans and their families in need.

Fox died of suicide on July 21, 2020 at the age of 25. His experience and life of generosity and kindness to others inspired the launch of the program in support of our nation’s heroes.
