Annual Survivors Retreats

Our Annual Survivors Retreats are designed to foster peer-based connections and support while providing workshops that assist survivors as they move forward in the grieving process. The retreats feature workshops, a keynote and closing session as well as opportunities for peer-support activities and give-back opportunities for survivors to feel empowered through volunteerism. Most important, retreats offer an opportunity for survivors to meet others going through a similar grief journey as their own. Through retreat attendance, survivors learn through the grief process, heal, feel empowered, and access a community of support. Participants leave with new tools and coping skills that impact tremendous positive change in their lives.

Conferences are thematically designed and tailored speci cally to different parts of survivors’ journeys. Depending on the theme of the conference, other workshops include topics such as health and wellness, nutrition, resiliency, parenting, survivor resources, and financial or career planning. To minimize financial barriers to attending, Special Ops Survivors covers the costs for all workshops, activities, meals and lodging for survivors.
