Forward Free is a new national public charity. It is on a mission of compassion to serve those who have experienced a traumatic event or severe stress. The focus is to help free them from the consequences of stress or trauma and to give them hope for a happier, more fulfilled life.

Several people groups experience severe stress and trauma, such as combat wounds or significantly stressful events. We bring them together in one place: disabled and wounded military veterans; firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical technicians; Christian pastors and missionaries; and “Gold Star” families and people from the local areas around the ranches, such as foster families, widows, and families who have experienced the death of a child.



Our core values drive what we do as a charitable, religious, and educational organization. And, we understand that clearly communicating our purpose through our core values is an important step in earning the trust of donating partners. Forward Free has three core values. First, we will help those experiencing severe stress and trauma by demonstrating hope and compassion modeled after Jesus Christ and tailored to the needs of each individual. Second, we will take a “whole-person” approach because the consequences of severe stress and trauma create physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. Third, we are committed to stable, long-term service. This means helping the individual throughout their life if necessary. It also means caring for future people experiencing severe stress or trauma.
