TOGETHER, WE HEAL
Our Mission is to create a therapeutic, recreational, and educational retreat for our nation's U.S. armed forces and their families, using outdoor wilderness activities in Maine and natural habitats to help participants share common challenges related to their service and sacrifice in protecting our nation's freedom and democratic ideals.
Thanks to your generosity, we are able to provide FREE outdoor retreats to our service members and their families. Your contribution and support may change, or save, a veteran's life. Get involved today.
We offer outdoor retreats for active duty military, veterans, and their family members, in the great wilderness of Maine.
Activities include hunting, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, nature tours, campfires, swimming, and wildlife identification and spotting.
Individuals with PTSD, TBI, and Combat related injuries not only find peace in the outdoors, but LIFE SAVING healing here.
As you can imagine, the demand is high for non-perishable items at the House in the Woods lodge, which we often have to purchase using donations. If you are able to, and interested, please take a look at the link below to see our regularly used items at the lodge. The ship to address is build into the wish list. We appreciate any support you are able to offer. Every donation regardless of size, is making it possible to provide these healing opportunities for our veterans.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Your program is an excellent example of Mainers working together to fill an unmet need in our State. The servicemen and women who have dedicated themselves to defending our freedom overseas face a unique set of challenges when returning home to civilian life. These veterans - and their families- deserve our full support in this time of transition, and House in the Woods is clearly committed to these goals."
— Governor, Paul LePage, State of Maine
