Our goal is to advance the healing process of injured veterans and encourage them to assume power and responsibility for the success of their lives.
The Whitefish Veterans Support Team (WVST) hosts two events per year, a summer and winter retreat, for 6 injured veterans and their spouses/caregivers. The net cost after in-kind gifts is approximately $20,000 per retreat including airfare, lodging and support sessions. Our programs engage the veterans and spouse/caregiver in physically challenging activities such as downhill skiing, snow boarding, snowmobiling, wake boarding, river rafting and fly fishing, as well as providing needed down time and access to appropriate community events. The activities are tailored to individual needs and provide training/professional instruction and the proper equipment so each person feels a sense of accomplishment.
The goal of the organization is to provide an opportunity for these individuals to have fun, feel a true sense of community and build meaningful relationships that will advance their healing process and encourage them to assume power and responsibility for the success of their lives. The members of WVST volunteer their time and experience to support the retreats. All equipment is provided by WVST members or one of its gracious supporters.
