"We serve those who have dedicated their lives to protecting our country and communities, and as a result, have faced trauma they carry home with them."

Executive Director, Mike Kenny

Our Approach

Answering the call to service often thrusts ordinary people into extraordinary situations. Unfortunately, experiencing these harrowing moments often leads to moral injuries sustained in the line of duty. The psychological and emotional trauma endured by both Veterans and First Responders can lead to depression and suicide. The Warriors' Ascent Program is designed to empower our Warriors to take ownership of their lives and healing by providing the tools to heal and tend the mind, body, and soul. 

Evidence-Based Results

We know our program works as demonstrated by the hundreds of lives we've saved and impacted. But in today's world, we knew we needed to quantify our results. And we're glad we did because according to a research study conducted by the KU Cofrin-Logan Center for Addiction Research and Treatment, the Warriors' Ascent Program has been proven to reduce the emotional and psychological suffering of our participants and improve their sense of wellbeing as evidenced by statistically significant outcomes measured over more than four years.  

Statistically significant improvement in emotional and psychological outcomes measured over 4+ years.
