PTS isn't about what is wrong with you, it's about what happened to you.

THE WELCOME HOME INITIATIVE® services (WHI) is a three day retreat for war-zone veterans who may be suffering in varying degrees of post-trauma stress and moral/soul injury.

The format is to assist veterans (and spouses) to accomplish essential spiritual and emotional healing from combat related post-traumatic stress (PTS) as a complement to medical, psychiatric and social services already in place — assuring them of a welcoming and safe place.  The program is geared to help every participant know and experience that they are “welcomed home” in every sense.

The WHI Program comprises of a series of talks designed to give an overview of healing PTS and moral injury, including:

  • Resources for coping and recovery

  • Healing of memories

  • The importance of telling your story and how to do so effectively

  • Impact of post-trauma stress upon family and other close relationships.

 

The connection and friendships that are formed during these retreats are outstanding. Participants find equal footing and experience camaraderie, regardless of their rank or branch of service.

 

Walls which once seemed too high to scale, crumble in the face of common shared experience. Though a serious and meaningful time for all, there is also much levity and laughter.

There is no fee for a veteran or spouse to attend. All meals and hotel accommodations are provided.  

Upcoming WHI will be
