The Healing Warriors program was founded in 2013 and serves more than 2,500 families in 21 states. The nonprofit organization has provided more than 26,000 treatments through its Fort Collins clinic and pop-up clinics in Longmont, Denver and Colorado Springs.

“Recent events have increased the risk of trauma, grief, pain and suicide for our military families, who sacrifice so much to serve our nation,” said Ana Yelen, Executive Director. “Our role is to reduce the factors that lead to veteran suicide. We solve problems together as a community and our fundraising events focus on education, awareness and breaking down barriers for our veteran families in obtaining care.
