I attended a Retreat this year and it was very impact full. During this event I was able to share and build new relationships with people who had the same issues. Being involved allowed me to get out issues that I forgot I had which allowed me to fully release a lot of anger, hurt and confusion. The retreat was well rounded and had equal time for many events so I didn't feel like herded cattle. I was able to be free within limits that weren't to suffocating. The staff was great, very personable and approachable, which made me feel comfortable and helped me to open up easier.

This group is experienced with Veterans and open to suggestions. Their groups and retreats are formed to be welcoming, open and honest in a safe and sober atmosphere. There is a spiritual atmosphere that not everyone is ready for but if one is willing to try new things is very benificial.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching Veterans open up to others and make social contacts that remain after the group.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add more recreaiton groups not just focus on retreats

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The openness and willingness to work with the different Veterans to meet their needs

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind, understanding, knowledgable and some Veterans themselves

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Rule the World!! Just kidding, this program would be more amazing and would be able to expand the program and help more Veterans along with adding the recreation trips and plan other components that they would like to include.

Ways to make it better...

There were other options besides journaling during the reflection component.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of funds & awareness

One thing I'd also say is that...

Although the spiritual & Zen feeling about the group is one of its strengths, it is also a weakness. Many Veterans who would benifet from the group are reluctant to join due to the spiritual component they are not willing to face.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
