Purpose

Providing a safe space for the victims of trauma and post-traumatic stress in which to experience healing.

The intensive residential program at Camp Hope aims to provide a more comprehensive peer support and mentoring based healing for those who need more than our Warrior Groups can provide.

There is no other location like it in the United States, and to date over 1,348 Veterans have graduated from the Camp Hope program.

 

History and More

The Facility opened in 2012 and is in a quiet and safe setting in Houston, Texas. As an interim housing facility, Camp Hope offers a minimum of a 6 month program that includes a 2  month transitional program. Residents attend group lessons and support sessions with other combat veterans. They are provided with individual mentoring sessions with certified combat trauma mentors. Participants are also able to go on off-site small group interaction activities trips, such as camping, fishing, sporting events and more. Many are encouraged to get involved with local churches, businesses and volunteer organizations to assist in their personal healing and educating the community on the invisible wounds of war.

Camp Staff

The Camp Hope staff is a unique team of certified combat Veterans and civilian pastoral staff trained in working with victims of trauma and post-traumatic stress. They understand those who have served this nation and continue to struggle with the invisible wounds of combat and are working to assist our troops in putting the pieces of their lives back together.

Using the necessary traditional counseling tools and incorporating a whole-person faith-based approach, the staff of Camp Hope push onward in their efforts to help each an every individual camp member on a personal level.

In addition, the staff assists Veterans with a myriad of issues including job placement, coordination with the Department of Veteran's Affairs and reputable veteran service organizations, transportation to and from appointments and peer support groups integration.

The Camp Hope community fully embraces our troops, Veterans, and their families as they seek the rewarding and fulfilling lives they so richly deserve.

The Camp Hope Program

Camp Hope is broken up into four separate phases. Each phase varies in length and is geared to prepare the Veteran mentally for the work they will do throughout the healing process. This includes (but not limited to) behavior modification, emotional control, implementing faith, addiction, anger management, etc. The curriculum also includes parenting classes, relationships, and family reintegration. Basically equipping them with productive mechanisms.

The Veterans also receive vocational prep, job training and workforce development along with other life skills needed to transition back into society. Our goal is to move a Veteran in crisis away from just surviving and towards thriving.

Take a Tour

It is hard to imagine where our organization would be without the generous hearts and determined efforts of our loyal volunteers and how they supported us over the years.

Nowhere is this more evident than on the Camp Hope campus. The impact of Volunteers goes far beyond the many homes built to house Veterans going through the program or the landscaping and the facilities. It is about aligning passion with purpose! Everything that is done on this 5-acre piece of land is done to give back to our nation's heroes.

Volunteering for the PTSD Foundation of America allows the community to be part of the hope and healing taking place here. Find out how you can become a part of the life-saving miracles.
