Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs

We know military life can forever alter your life, both as a veteran or as a spouse or family member.  PTSD, deployments, injuries and combat trauma can leave families broken and unsure where to turn.   So we’re so excited to tell you about the Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs, a non-profit with a mission to “assist our nation’s military Warriors and families find a new life purpose through a hope in Christ, after enduring hardship through their service to America.

The Mighty Oaks Foundation is committed to serving the brokenhearted by providing intensive peer-based discipleship through a series of programs, outpost meetings, and speaking events. It hosts such Men, Women, Mentorship and Marriage Advance Programs at multiple locations nationwide. The Warriors who attend are fully sponsored for training, meals, and lodging needs to ensure that upon arrival to the ranch, each Warrior is focused solely on his or her recovery and identifying purpose moving forward.”

Since each Mighty Oaks leader has experienced the tragedy and hardships associated with the military, they’re able to connect in a unique way with you and your family. If you’re struggling with any hardship that military life can bring, we strongly recommend connecting with this ministry.
