Almost two decades of conflict has left its mark on our bravest warriors. Returning home after multiple deployments and extended absences is difficult for even the "strongest" of warriors and the most loving of families. 
Living Free is committed to providing active, non-active & retired patriot families with the life skills and support necessary to face their next BIG adventure in life together.

What have we learned?
What are we looking forward to?
Why do we attend?
" Living Free has been a wonderful program for our family. We spent time together creating thoughtful projects in which every member of the family had equal importance and input. The program made us reflect on what each person brings to the family unit and helped us focus on what role each of us plays. The program definitely brought us closer together and gave us the tools to help support each other. It was nice to make new friends of families in similar situations and eat a healthy meal together.  The facilitators are warm and friendly. I would highly recommend this program. It has really helped us as a family."

“This program gives us the opportunity to learn as a family about how to communicate and plan better. It provides us with the challenge to observe and identify areas where we can improve our family together. ”

“We are learning to work together as a family/team. This is huge in our relationship. During deployments you learn to live and function independently. We have learned that mutual respect= mutual happiness= family happiness!  We have learned to be considerate and LISTEN to others. We are wholeheartedly committed to moving forward and not letting the past hinder our progression.

I am really looking forward to the future not just getting through this duty station or the day to day routine.”
