Resilient Retreat is a Florida non-profit dedicated to empowering those who have experienced trauma and abuse and professionals who have experienced vicarious trauma in the workplace.
A concerned group of citizens, survivors, and first responders have come together to find land, build a retreat center, and develop free interdisciplinary services to make this vision a reality.
Resilient Retreat is focused on creating a peaceful retreat for those impacted by trauma, specifically adult survivors of abuse (e.g., domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse, sex trafficking, stalking) and first responders that witness the effects of violence in the workplace (e.g., advocates, social workers, medical professionals, teachers, police officers, fire fighters, etc.). We offer free interdisciplinary programs in a variety of locations (and will offer them on 84 acres of conserved land once our retreat center has been built) which are focused on healing the entire person and connecting participants with a community that has faced similar experiences.
We believe that collaboration within the community is key. In this spirit, we work with community partners in the Florida Suncoast reg...ion to provide evidence-based strategies to heal the devastating effects of trauma on the mind, body, and spirit.
