Everybody is welcome to come and heaffhim; there is no charge. Offering new hope to veterans and their families through week- end retreats. At Project New Hope, we are driven by our mission: To provide veterans and their fam- ilies the education, training and skills necessary to manage their lives after wartime service. Project New Hope was founded in 2007 by caring individuals who understand that for veterans and their families, wartime doesn't end the day that soldier comes war. Each family member will deal with what has happened in their own way. Returning sol- diers face the challenge of tran- sition from war footing, to civil- ian home life. Often, it can seem as though they're in it alone, as though people expect them to pick up where they'd been, as thodgh nothing had changed during their time away. Spouses may strug- gle with changes in the home, first with their soldier gone, and Hope retreats, financial concerns will never prevent us from offering our services 'to soldiers and their families. If you or someone you know has served our country in times of war, please join Project New Hope for a weekend retreat for the entire family. Come join other veterans and their families, as we all con- tinue on the journey.
