Wounded Warriors Canada - Warrior Kids Camp

There is increased awareness of the secondary impact trauma has on children, especially those with a parent diagnosed with Operational Stress Injuries (such as PTSD) from service-related experiences.

The WWC Warrior Kids program's clinical framework pulls from resilience theory, trauma-informed practices, and child-centered play therapy and is designed to capture effective evaluation measures. Their goal is for kids to build positive relationships with peers, gain knowledge of the injury, and develop new coping skills that will help them grow and thrive.

 Wayfinders Wellness Retreat at Wineglass Ranch

At Wayfinders they believe in a well-balanced life and understand the importance of mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health. They provide a safe space for Military and First Responders suffering from PTSD and their families to come to experience all areas of wellness through nature-based programs and open-minded community centred support.

To Serve and Connect is a non-profit society that was created by and is ran by Lauren Cleveland. Lauren is an ex-corrections officer who is married to a police officer. Lauren saw a need to create a safe place for spouses of First Responders to connect, build community, share resources and swap stories. Lauren's experience as a first responder and being married to one offers insight into both sides. She is dedicated to helping spouses create safe places for their partner to land, offer tools and strategies to build resilience, and have a community of people around that will demonstrate support.
