The AWA provides restorative 5-day Men's and Women’s Programs in the mountains of Colorado, California, and Georgia for our military, veterans, and first responders. These faith-based programs are designed to heal the moral injuries sustained while serving our country and communities and allow warriors to rest and repair their souls.
Moral Injury is the emotional, social, behavioral, and spiritual suffering warriors endure after witnessing or experiencing a traumatic event that violates their moral values. Warriors often experience symptoms of shame, guilt, isolation, substance abuse, and sometimes thoughts of suicide. Moral Injury produces substantial wear and tear on the individual, their marriage, and family.
Through our faith-based curriculum, group discussion, outdoor activities, and spiritual support, we help warriors confront and overcome the moral injuries they carry. Our programs aim to equip them with the tools to build spiritual strength and resiliency and create a sense of community and purpose beyond their service duties.
American Warrior Association’s programs are free of charge to our warriors and paid for by our generous donors.
