Why do you have Chaplains at FRSN retreats?

We have found that some of our faith-based participants appreciate a spiritual component in their recovery process. Some participants will disclose or discuss something to a clergy person that they would not to anyone else. Some clients appreciate the fact that there is a pastoral presence, someone who is not evangelizing but simply a compassionate, empathic, and a person who holds confidential privilege. FRSN does not endorse any specific religious tradition.
