    Freedom for Heroes is a non-profit veteran-led organization committed to improving the lives of servicemembers and veterans by creating positive opportunities and life-enriching experiences.  We know healing from the wounds of war is a life-long endeavor and is something that cannot be done alone—it requires camaraderie, guidance, and empathy. Services include outdoor activities, resort retreats, and focus panels that cover a wide variety of topics including self-care, PTSD management, VA navigation, and life planning.

    Our organization was founded by 20 year Army combat veteran, who used his military experience to forge a successful life beyond the battlefield.  His passion for personal healing and professional growth has driven him to bring his mission to others. We believe that by creating an open and honest space, our brothers and sisters in service can make strides in building the life they deserve regardless of where they may be on their journey.

    Our Mission Is To…

    Freedom for Heroes’ mission is to provide experiences and skillsets to the veteran community that improve their quality of life, with long-term, heartfelt solutions.

    Our programs and services will include:

    • Extended weekend events that promote healing through outdoor activities, such as guided fishing, camping, hunting, and backpacking trips.  These events will be fun, but also a mastermind type environment including things like deep dives on mental health and how to heal as a tribe, as well as Yoga, promoting healing in multiple ways through, self-love, self-care, and self-development.

    • Retreats in a resort environment with high-level motivational guest speakers who currently are helping in this same space, job search assistance, PTSD treatment, and VA system navigation for submitting claims as well as access to outside advocates who can provide support and guidance.

    • Long-term goals include raising capital to build and give someone a home for free, and possibly a mission in another country by helping others with the intent of healing ourselves.

    We believe that by creating a safe space for servicemembers and veterans to be vulnerable and open to help, we can help them to heal and rebuild their lives. We are committed to changing the way that the veteran suicide and care pandemic is viewed and handled. We strongly believe that by helping veterans discover where they are through our designated phases in their own specific journey, so we can provide them with the help that they need.

    The whole house has a very custom look and feel to it and sometimes it still feels like a museum or a model home. Mr. Christensen and his crew did a phenomenal job and then some! It is and will always be more than I ever expected.
