Whitefish Veterans Support Team

Use of Funds: Funds will help offset the approximate $60,000 cost of hosting 12 injured veterans and spouses in our 2017 retreats.

Mission Statement: The Whitefish Veterans Support Team's (WVST) mission is to empower injured veterans, caregivers and their families by providing opportunities to build meaningful relationships and engage them in physical and emotionally challenging activities to advance their healing.

Project Detail:

WVST is dedicated to providing new beginnings and transition for injured veterans, caregivers and their families.  We are committed to improving the lives of injured veterans by providing safe and nurturing relationships that will encourage community interaction and a new sense of purpose.  We help these veterans by conducting winter and summer retreats that include activities such as skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling, fly-fishing and float trips.  Additionally we conduct several in depth counseling and coaching sessions.  Participants leave Whitefish with a renewed sense of confidence and excitement to move forward through their transition period.
