Relief & Resiliency

Mentorship Retreats

In collaboration with the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Boulder Crest Retreat, we’re connecting wounded veterans from different military conflicts. Over the course of seven days, these heroes can heal and find renewed strength to overcome their individual challenges together.

Program Highlights


Over the course of each retreat, heroes at the beginning of their rehabilitation are paired with veterans who have successfully overcome similar struggles.

Safety & Strength

Helping our wounded heroes work towards a healthy mindset is the goal of every retreat. Each day includes workshops and activities focused on everything from learning to maintain healthy relationships to planning a financial future.

Finding Community

Many heroes are hesitant to reach out for help. But once trust has been established and communication lines are opened, close bonds can be formed.

The Stories

The biggest thing I got from attending was that growth is possible. I learned that I do not have to live my life as a diminished version of myself, but a better version. I also learned better ways to cope with stressors in life. And that I am not alone.
