About Us

Resilient Retreat is a new and innovative approach to help those impacted by trauma and abuse. Free evidence-based services will be provided to heal the mind, body, and spirit on 84 acres of conservation land in Sarasota, FL. Led by a dedicated group of survivors and first responders, an Advisory Council called VOICES provides Resilient Retreat direction and guidance to ensure that the center and programming are created by the community for the community.

Resilient Retreat was incorporated as a Florida not for profit on August 10th, 2018. IRS tax-exempt status was approved on March 19, 2019. The retreat center is expected to break ground at the beginning of 2020.
