Forward Free plans to establish seven life ranches in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Virginia, California, Washington, and Colorado. Life Ranches provide an uncommon and exciting experience for people to find rest, recuperation, recreation, and respite. Life Ranches are the primary means for Forward Free to accomplish its mission, for preventing and mitigating the consequences of trauma and stress. Exceptional programs and services at its ranches will enable the guests to strengthen their marriage and family health, mental health, physical health, and spiritual health. With the seven life ranches, Forward Free aims to serve around 80,000 individuals annually to get away from their difficult surroundings and find comprehensive support in a wonderful but discreet setting. Forward Free will offer two weeks of stay free for individuals in need along with their loved ones to enjoy a peaceful environment for mental and physical soothing and to experience a wide range of education and counseling programs and services.
Forward Free’s slogan is “Compassion with Mission” which communicates our approach to charitable service to help individuals get through and beyond their trials. We will be a single source of programs and services to meet the depth and array of needs stemming from trauma and stress-related secondary consequences including: counseling, education, coaching, App delivered information, printed and online materials, local connections, mentoring, expert conferences, leadership forums, family support, physical health and wellness, nutrition, mental health therapy, music therapy, writing therapy, recreation therapy, adaptive sports, research and analysis, annual return, referral, and crisis support. These programs and services reflect our core 501(c)(3) charitable, religious, and educational purposes.
