"You couldn't be more right when you say that I take a serious interest in the well-being of our first responders. These courageous men and women face tremendous danger every day in service to us and our families. They work tirelessly, doing some of the most exacting jobs under adverse conditions. I value the commitment of organizations, such as the WCPR, to protecting those who do so much to protect us."

The West Coast Post-trauma Retreatsm program model is endorsed by the California Sheriff's Association.

California Sheriff's Association, 

"Thank you for sharing the success of the West Coast Post-trauma Retreat with our Board of Directors. It was obvious to everyone that this sort of program is desperately needed and our board was unanimous in its decision to officially endorse the West Coast Post-trauma Retreatsm. We appreciate all that you do on behalf of trauma survivors."

Cam Sanchez, President
California Police Chiefs Association, Inc.

"The West Coast Post-trauma Retreatsm is an excellent resource, helping men and women beneath the badge reclaim their lives after exposure to, or accumulation of, PTS. The strategic, peer-based program is a must to help these men and women mitigate the impact of PTS, while gaining the coping skills to help return their lives and families to normalcy. We recommend them highly."

Dr. Charles R. Lorrain, Executive Director
International Conference of Police Chaplains (ICPC)
