Fidelis Family Retreat Goals

A lake front or near the water property to further water based therapy and activities for our veteran families. A physical location will also open doors to additional grant funding.

The Scuba Vets program helps veterans engage family and friends while reinforcing relaxation and breathing techniques. Raised $12,500 towards target of $30,000.

All services are provided free of charge to our veteran families.

Water yoga proves an effective method to help veterans relax and families engage in a shared activity. COMPLETED! Water Yoga Mats are purchased and currently in use with our families.
