WHAT WE DO

The Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation has continued to grow and reach more milestones in our active support of local veterans, as well as expanding to first responders in the Pacific Northwest. 

Since 2011, the foundation has sought and supported local organizations that offer alternative therapies which help soldiers and their families readjust to life back home. We have also developed our own strength-based programs with monthly peer to peer support meetings called “Huddles” in Tacoma, Gig Harbor, growing to Bremerton soon. 

In addition, we have delivered Mind, Body and Spirit workshops, courage and leadership summits, eliminated barriers for veterans to receive equine therapy and counseling, and smoothed the way for many local veterans and first responders to attend a progressive week long retreat that offers combat stress recovery and focuses on post traumatic growth. 

Our commitment to finding answers and programs for the long journey of healing from the invisible wounds of war and service-related injuries is resolute. Our events connect community to support this mission. By getting involved, you are joining the thousands of compassionate allies and citizens who want to offer hope and healing for those who serve our nation and our community. 

Thank you for being a part of the “dream team”.
