Healing Warrior Hearts

Healing Warrior Hearts provides free retreats for veterans to heal the emotional invisible wounds of military service.
We have been doing retreats since 1993 when we started as the Bamboo Bridge.
Now we do six retreats a year in Milwaukee and 4 per year in Houston, Texas.
Twice annually we do an “all veterans” retreat, twice per year a retreat dedicated to the issue of Military Sexual Trauma, one retreat for LGBTQ+ veterans, and one per year for couples.

We are a community of veterans and civilians who support each other in living healthy lives of emotional well-being. Community gatherings and other workshops and support groups for recovery and well-being are also part of our programming.

Operation Grateful Giving is our give-back program, putting together over 400 gift bags for in-patient veterans at the VA, as well as veterans at Vets Place Central, Boudicca House and R&R House.

The Successful Living Basic Training is an online program offered free to veterans through the “We Got Your Six” initiative.

Healing Warrior Hearts representatives are active members of the SE WI Veteran Suicide Prevention Task Force.

Healing Warrior Hearts is sponsored in Wisconsin by the Starfish Foundation, a 501c3 tax-exempt charitable organization. Starfish is a 100% volunteer organization so 95% of all donations go directly to program delivery.

Veterans who come from beyond the Greater Milwaukee area are given lodging at a hotel next door to our facility. We are also able to help with flight transportation when needed through HeroMiles.
