The Center for Post Traumatic Growth has developed a sponsorship program for military veterans to honor their sacrifice and service to our country and community. Any monetary donations will offset the cost for your designated veteran to our PTS/Moral Injury core program; fulfilling a 2-year journey to healing and recovery.

Education & Outreach
The Center for Post Traumatic Growth provides outreach and education that will facilitate the reintegration of veterans, law enforcement, and first responders into the community and promote greater understanding among the general public about their experiences and our mutual responsibility to heal the wounds of trauma and war.
Clinical Training Program

Volunteer & Peer Programs
The Center for Post Traumatic Growth was founded on the belief that healing requires connection between people and that it takes a compassionate community to succeed in healing the wounds of trauma and war. Beyond financial support, at the CPTG we have developed two ways that you can become an active member of our healing community.
Peer Support Program
As we have served veterans over the last 18 years we have learned that for veterans to fully heal they must reconnect with themselves, with others and with their communities. Because trauma shatters one’s sense of self, many veterans have lost their belief in themselves as worthy individuals, their efficacy as human beings and in their ability to be a meaningful part of society. Therefore, we have developed a peer certification program where we will train interested veterans who have completed our full treatment program and family members to become peer mentors who will assist us in supporting veterans and their families through the process of treatment and also in delivering these vital services to our clients.
