Healing America’s Heroes (HAH) is accepting applications for its Summer Program. The program provides up to six women veterans an opportunity to enrich their lives through horsemanship, fly fishing and skills building.

All meals, lodging and therapeutic programs are provided at no cost to veterans during this one-week program June 25-30 at a private, 10-acre retreat in Plaza Blanca.

“We are very pleased to announce our Summer Program … it has been a long process to reach this milestone, and we thank the many volunteers and supporters who helped each step of the way,” HAH Executive Director Eddie Crain said.

Participants will each be assigned a guide and equipment to learn about and take part in their building sessions that will cover topics such as building Safety skills and managing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and substance abuse. The program will conclude with a Special ceremony to recognize the participants.

“This marks a great step in building our organization to help our Women Veterans and their families,” HAH Vice President Robert Martinez said.

HAH is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded and dedicated to helping veterans and their family members improve and enrich their lives, ensure successful treatment options are available to those veterans in need, and to raise awareness and public interest in helping veterans who have served our country. The purpose of HAH is to help veterans help themselves through our recreational therapeutic support services of horsemanship and fly-fishing skills building in the beautiful natural environments. There is no cost for veterans and their families to participate in HAH’s therapeutic support programs. All transportation, lodging, meals, and therapeutic services are offered at no cost.
