Soldier’s Heart has created a unique and comprehensive model to address the emotional, moral, and spiritual needs of veterans, their families and communities. Our goal is to alleviate the symptoms of PTSD by developing a new and honorable warrior identity through storytelling, purification, community forgiveness and healing, and restitution as outlined in Edward Tick'sWar and the Soul. In addition, we promote, train, and guide military, professional and community-based efforts to heal the effects of war.

The term Soldier’s Heart was coined in the time of the Civil War to describe Post–traumatic Stress Disorder. The organization Soldier’s Heart was created in response to the outpouring of concern for our nation’s veterans and their psychological wounds.

Our goal is to prepare families and communities in supporting and healing veterans both those returning from current wars and those who fought in past wars. Our veterans’ project focuses on creating a network of community based services to facilitate a healthier and more successful reintegration of our nation’s veterans.

In addition to direct service to veterans, our staff helps educate communities on how to start support services for vets and their families and conducts seminars to train other professionals in the special and unique needs of veterans.
