Event Description

February 12, 2014 Updated Feb 12, 2014 at 8:45 AM EDT

Victory Noll Center, in conjunction with Lutheran Military Veterans and Families Ministry and the Huntington County Veterans Service Office, will host a weekend retreat for female military veterans from March 14-16.

The retreat is being held for any female veteran, regardless of age and from any service period including those currently in active service. The focus of this program is to find positive self-care practices that can be used by female military members to work through their unique experiences and negative stressors often found when returning home from deployment or even during active-duty service.

The retreat will begin on Friday, March 14 with a social time beginning at 5 p.m. The retreat session on Saturday, March 15 will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Women will have the option of staying Saturday night with a departure on Sunday, March 16. Meals will be provided. Victory Noll Center is located at 1900 W. Park Drive in Huntington.

Cost of the retreat is $10 and is limited to the first 15 women who sign up. Scholarships are available.

The caregiving team for this retreat includes women who have experienced combat, as well as other caregivers who understand and have been tending to the unique needs and challenges of veterans, especially female military members.

Victory Noll Center provides a safe and peaceful retreat location for this program, and a relaxing atmosphere from individual journeys amy begin. Activities will be available throughout the day including individual practices, group discussions, or one-on-one meetings with wellness team members. Veterans may learn about journaling practices, walk the labyrinth, or explore the beautiful Victory Noll campus.
