From our educational resources to our outdoor workshop, you can find a way to make a positive change in your life.

Embark on the rehabilitative adventure of Project Odyssey

Jason Foster

Named after Homer’s famous poem about overcoming adversity and finding the way home, Project Odyssey gives you the tools to overcome the obstacles you face. In an all-male, all-female, or couples retreat, you’ll participate in activities like hiking, rock climbing, scavenger hunts, and more.

Through a multi-day adventure with trained counselors and fellow warriors, you’ll find yourself not only forging strong relationships, but also rediscovering yourself.

“If it weren’t for Project Odyssey, I would not be here today,” said warrior Jason Foster. “Those five days I got to spend with my brothers were the first five days I saw hope in years. It was the first time I felt like maybe it was okay not to be okay. It changed my life.”

Understand how to recognize and deal with PTSD, TBI, and combat stress

What is Combat Stress?

Combat stress is a normal reaction to the abnormal conditions of a combat environment. Symptoms can be, but are not limited to, fatigue, loss of concentration, and decreased reaction time.

What is PTSD?

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a diagnosed condition that can develop after a person is exposed to a traumatic event. PTSD is a very common condition for many veterans after military service. Symptoms can include disturbing thoughts, feelings, or dreams related to the events, mental or physical distress, difficulty sleeping, and changes in how a person thinks and feels.

What is TBI?

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain caused by an external force. The symptoms of the injury can vary. Mild or moderate TBI symptoms can include mood changes, trouble with concentration, headaches, difficulty with sleep, and reduced motor coordination. Severe TBI can cause greatly reduced or lack of motor control, greatly reduced ability or inability to speak, and restlessness or agitation.
