RETREATS/ CONFERENCES

Our team has extensively reviewed and vetted these Law Enforcement organizations and can confidently recommend them as a valuable resource for individuals facing adversity or those who want to be proactive in their resiliency. Each event has a unique focus, guiding participants through the emotional and spiritual toll of a career in law enforcement and as a First Responder. These organizations offer an array of tools, counseling, and resources to instill resiliency, and hope and facilitate healing for officers and their families. Most feature individuals who possess personal experience in law enforcement, providing valuable insights into their own career challenges and the hope they have discovered. We fully endorse these organizations as their content aligns with our mission.
