Healing the Heroes was founded by a couple of outdoorsmen that wanted to give back to the Veterans of this country. They found that taking men and women outdoors to bond, explore, and enjoy nature lead to healing. Just as the name states, we are Healing the Heroes. Our group is comprised of 3 board members one of which is a veteran himself. We are a fully sanctioned 501C3 with an incorporation. Currently we have 36 Veterans that we can accommodate. Our activities include but are not limited to, camping, hunting, fishing, and get togethers. 75% of our events are family friendly. We have discovered healing the families comes with healing the hero!
We also have a vast knowledge between veterans that are able to assist our younger generation that need a source of guidance. It is hard transitioning back into the civilian world, however, doing it with people that have been there can make A to B seem alot easier.
All proceeds go towards providing trips for these veterans. When they are invited on a trip we dont want them to have to worry about the financial aspect, everything is paid for through Healing the Heroes. These events are bonding and provide our men and women of uniform the chance to spend a few moments focused on things they enjoy. Even if its only 3 days away from the pain and battles in their heads, its progress.
