GratitudeAmerica, Inc.’s primary goal is to provide critical support for our past and present military service members and their families during their return to civilian life. We accomplish this goal by offering retreat programs that use integrative restorative approaches to assist participants affected by deployment exposures such as Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injury, and by connecting warriors to resources through our network of community partners.
“America’s fighting men and women sacrifice much to ensure that our great nation stays free. We owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause, as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed.” ― Allen Boyd
