The Coming Home Project is a non-profit organization devoted to providing direct care to OEF and OIF veterans and their families. They offer a variety of national retreats for OEF and OIF veterans and their families, as well as retreats for service providers who work with the OEF and OIF community each and every day. This is a unique perspective in actively assisting those willing to volunteer their lives to help the OEF/OIF community. The philosophy is that by helping one service provider, that service provider can in turn better serve the entire community.
In the middle of April, the Coming Home Project will offer a retreat specifically designed for service providers who work directly with OEF and OIF veterans and family members. Service providers include but are not limited to government employed caregivers, care coordinators, advocates, mental health and other health professionals, counselors, veteran service officers, chaplains, military leaders, and veteran service organization staff. Detailed information is as follows:
Where: Burlingame, CA
When: April 14th-17th
Who: Service providers across the nation who have at least 50% of their course load devoted to assisting OEF and/or OIF veterans and family members.
What: The retreat will focus on the service provider’s emotional well being and will be an open and nurturing environment for discussion and reflection.
