The Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation exists to bring hope and healing to our military members, veterans and their families who deal with post traumatic stress and combat trauma. The foundation has given over $300,000 to local alternative veterans organizations since its inception in 2011.
As the foundation has grown, it has spawned a dynamic movement in the Pacific Northwest, offering veterans real and tangible help, strength based and solution focused. In 2017, it delivered an innovative retreat program fostering “post traumatic growth” and will continue to develop that so more veterans from the PNW can participate. The foundation offers connection for our military with monthly Veterans Huddles, currently planning its first wellness workshop in an effort to help them make peace with their past for a better future and strategically planning for the creation of the Northwest Passage, a comprehensive wellness veteran center.
The Pull for A Soldier Trap Shoot tournament is a great example of the community joining us in that effort while experiencing a great day of competition.
