Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Military & Veterans Organizations, Veterans

Mission: The Coming Home Project is a non-profit organization devoted to providing compassionate expert care, support, education, and stress management tools for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, service members, their families, and their service providers. We are a multidisciplinary, experienced team of psychotherapists, veterans and interfaith leaders committed to helping transform the wounds of war. Our programs address the psychological, emotional, spiritual and relationship challenges experienced during all stages of deployment, especially reintegration. We help rebuild the connectivity of mind, body, heart and spirit that combat trauma can unravel, renew relationships with loved ones, and create new support networks. We build a safe place – a community -- for families, their veterans and service members, and their service providers to come together and share their stories, struggles and accomplishments. We connect families with their communities as we collaborate to create integrative continuums of care. Single veterans and service members as well as those with physical injuries are also most welcome.

Monchy Primary School in St. Lucia is a proud recipient of books from Hands Across the Sea. Although we do not have our Child Friendly Literacy Space as yet all our books have been sorted by support personnel and they are used by teachers and students in the class. This donation of assorted literature has been a welcome addition of reading material for students and teachers alike. we are truly blessed to have been on the receiving end . We look forward to a continued support from Hand Across the Sea. We will inform you on the progress of our Child Friendly Literacy Space. Thanks again from Teachers Students and Parents of Monchy.

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.
