BENEFITING: LONE SURVIVOR FOUNDATION
Our mission is to restore, empower and renew hope for wounded service members and their families through health, wellness and therapeutic support. LSF hosts therapeutic retreats for service members with Post Traumatic Stress, mild Traumatic Brain Injury, Chronic Pain, and Military Sexual Trauma. Retreat attendees participate in psychoeducational group sessions and individual counseling as well as Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) using the EAGALA model, neuro-feedback, combat-trauma specific yoga and other cutting-edge modalities. All of these services are provided at no cost to the service members or their families through the generous support of donors and sponsors, and through fundraising events around the country. We are steadily growing our program to meet the needs of our increasing waiting list. In 2015, LSF provided 16 retreats serving 80 veterans and family members. This year, LSF is hosting 31 retreats with 297 participants. Next year, 43 retreats are already scheduled and filling up with 371 participants projected. Retreats are hosted in the fall/winter months at the our first owned retreat facility in Crystal Beach, TX which opened in April of 2015. In the summer months, retreats are hosted at two rented facilities in the Park City, UT area.
