2 The Next Shift is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing first responders with support, solutions and a successful pathway to maintaining a positive mindset as well as a healthy lifestyle—mentally, physically, emotionally, financially and spiritually. We appreciate the generous support of the community, local merchants and civic organizations.
for their commitment to helping first responders. I am a Texas firefighter and had a coworker that was in a dark place. He was on administrative leave for mental health issues and was about to run out of time. He had been working with the EAP in our city network and found it to be very unhelpful. He needed someone he could talk to, that understood first responders. He needed somebody that could walk him through the steps he needed to take, to get help fast.
I called Ray Schufford “Shoe” on a Friday evening and explained the situation. Shoe answered the call and was on it. The Organization paired my coworker with the perfect trained professional that lined up with what he needed.
2 The Next Shift was available to start working with my coworker the following morning, within 24 hours. They explained to him how his benefits and FMLA work. He has made great progress and should be coming back on line soon. If you know someone that is struggling, please don’t hesitate to contact this organization. Get the help you need. They truly understand and get it.
Individuals who seek guidance, advice, coaching and mentorship, while becoming a part of a Fire-Rescue or any organization, I would highly recommend Ray Schufford with 2 The Next Shift. He is one of the most spiritual, knowledgeable, and supportive people I know. Whenever you are in need or just simply need someone to talk to, he will be there for you. They also play a big factor when it comes to mental health and staying on the right track. That is a big deal as a first responder. From the regular checkups to advice on the ins and outs of the fire department, 2 The Next Shift is the place to go. There is no price I can put on his services and support they provide. If given the opportunity, please take advantage.
