Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Horses Equine Therapy Program

Equine facilitated learning encompasses horse facilitated activities to help participants recognize and move beyond the maladaptive coping strategies associated with survival to place where participants can actually thrive. Horses are effective co-facilitators because of their sensitivity to human emotion and ability to read human body language.

Culinary Art Therapy has many benefits such as gaining insight into one's behavior, learning about social skills/ cues, Improved communication skills, Improved memory, attention and focus, and Stress management. People experience life through the senses. The more we use our senses, the more they mature and help us fully integrate into life. Just like a car needs fuel, so do our brains. Our fuel gets refilled by continuing the make use of our ability for touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing. All of these senses get a work out in the kitchen. Nutritional counseling will also be offered through this activity.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to help those who struggle with their invisible injuries, and emotionally charged wounding to experience a fresh perspective of themselves, their lives, and the act of limitless possibilities. Our hope is to re-inspire in our clients the motivation, willingness, and courage to excel to their best selves so they can continue to live the life they were authentically meant to lead. As a holistic treatment program, we work closely with each client, listening carefully, and guiding her on the pathway toward recovery so she can be empowered.

We promote a holistic therapeutic approach by offering multiple services and equipping individuals with practical life skills. Organizationally, we are committed to a continual improvement process. Operation Revival Survival Recover is only the beginning.
The core embodiment of our organization is to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. Our organizational focus is to make a positive impact in the lives of our service women.
We are individuals who uphold the standards of an honest support system in order to help improve their quality of life when struggling with an invisible injury. We are accountable to manage financial and material resources in a wise and productive manner. We strive to achieve these principals with personal conduct that honors those that have served our country, earning us a name worthy of trust by sponsors and communities alike.

Our facility is currently situated in a setting that provides a peaceful place for healing. We have readily available resources and access to our therapy programs such as our Equine Therapy program, Culinary Art program and Art Therapy through the assistance and dedication of our Clinicians who are credentialed to help our participants successfully continue through our programs. Our goal is to facilitate growth and develop other programs that assist women in their struggle with their invisible and sometimes visible injuries.

TPB has outlined and clearly defined our goals within the organization. We have defined our building block initiatives and established an approach to make our initiatives come to fruition (In example, acquiring the property where we are currently working to build a service center and transitional housing for our homeless veterans).
We aim to publicize our progress among our supporters and sponsors so they can see where their donations have made progress. We are actively pursuing and establishing partnerships with other organizations that can utilize our services for their clients or patients. We have immersed ourselves in the community in order to educate the general public of the needs of those suffering from PTSD and MST.
