What is Resilient Retreat?

Based on the pillars of trauma-informed care, Resilient Retreat provides free and confidential programs for survivors of abuse, first responders, and helping professionals to heal the impacts of trauma on the mind, body, and spirit. Acting as trauma navigators, Resilient Retreat helps community members impacted by trauma find resources while also receiving support. In addition to workshops and educational opportunities, Resilient Retreats offers participants the opportunity to try a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities, such as equine therapy, yoga, art and music therapy, experiences in nature, and more. Once our center is built, these treatments will be hosted on our 84 acres of conservation land that will house our Retreat and Community Centers, a place to empower our participants towards a life of resiliency and hope.
