The goal of the EOD Warrior Foundation is to serve the EOD community in a variety of ways, and our mission is to “improve the quality of life for the EOD Family by providing educational, financial and emotional support”.
We provide financial assistance, organize morale events, and offer an extensive resource library, while maintaining the EOD Memorial Wall. We stay in touch on a regular basis, through various social media outlets and events, because we are devoted to helping the community in any way we can.
One of the biggest ways that we help people in the EOD community is through the Hope and Wellnessprogram. Here’s more information on what the program is and how it can help you:
About Hope and Wellness
The life of an EOD family can be unpredictable. The job is a dangerous one, and EOD technicians are constantly in harm’s way. Family members are stressed and left with a high amount of uncertainty. The core of our Hope and Wellness initiative are our retreats, which offer meaningful ways to connect with the community. At these retreats, you will have a chance to interact with other EOD community members, while also enjoying everything that the retreat has to offer.
Get to Know Our Retreats
Our retreat offerings are carefully selected so that our community members can benefit in a variety of ways. In fact, those who attend our retreats can get out of it what they need. Whether they are looking for some recreation, need assistance for their mental health, need a wellness boost, or need help healing from trauma, the retreats are able to give people the support they need. Here are some of the ways that the retreats help people in the EOD community:
Make Connections with Others
One if the ways the retreats can be so beneficial is that they can help those within the community make important connections with others. These connections are deep, which can help foster a sense of wellbeing. These connections are forged through mentorship, guided discussions, peer support, and outreach programs.
Take a Break from Every Day
These retreats can also help people take a break from their everyday lives. They are provided at no cost; which means that there’s no monetary-related stress involved with participating in them. We want you to relax and immerse yourself in the experience so that you can focus on your wellbeing, health, and healing.
Enjoy a Variety of Experiences
We hold retreats throughout the year, and each has a different theme. There’s something here for everyone, it just depends on what you would like support in. For example, we host retreats for couples, families, EOD spouses, Gold Star parents and spouses, and also retreats for both male and female EOD technicians. The retreats are an amazing experience, and a great resource to help with the wellbeing of the community. Please visit this link to find out more.
