Code of Ethics

 

We offer these ethical promises to all we serve: participants, families, volunteers, donors, funders, allies, and the community.  

 

No Cost to Vets

Because they have “already paid” with their service, we invite our community to donate the costs and volunteerism of our program, including retreat expenses, travel, and incidentals.

Safety

Because PTSD/MST is complex and individual, we embrace the personal circumstances with kindness and unconditional acceptance, always without judgement.

Accessible

To encourage participation, we work to remove barriers and obstacles for all applicants.

Healing

We use the talking circle and creative arts as our primary healing methods, plus additional supportive strategies for continued post-retreat healing, which for many is a life-long path.

Small Heading

I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.

Trust

We work to earn trust through clear communication, prompt service, attention to personal needs, respect for individuality, and support for peer relationships.

Confidentiality

We protect the privacy and identity of each participant and their story and art, while offering support for them to step forward in their own way, on their own time.

Partnership

Civilians and professionals partner with veterans to work and heal together, in search of greater understanding and collective strength.

Stewardship

We take seriously the responsibility of using the resources of money, time, and trust. We pledge dedicated all-volunteer leadership, comitted to full and timely transparency of plans, operations, and outcomes.

Advocacy

From a collective background of personal, military, and cultural experience, we focus forward towards constructive understanding, healing, and communications.
