We are pleased to announce that our Northwest, Rocky Mountain Northeast, Rocky Mountain Northwest Regions have been re-organized to better serve each areas injured and disabled military service personnel and disabled veterans.  The re-organization will combine 3 regions into 2 : Rocky Mountain North, and the Northwest, and it will better enable our programs and volunteer leadership to focus on providing our unique brand of healing to their local military and veteran communities.

You can see the complete program listings and contact information below

The Northwest Region will expand to encompass Washington, Oregon, and Idaho with Alan Fitzpatrick serving as Regional Coordinator. The Rocky Mountain North Region will expand to encompass Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota with Derrick Deitz serving as Regional Coordinator. Sylvia Bach, former Regional Coordinator of the Rocky Mountain Northeast Region will continue in a volunteer leadership role within the Northwest Region in the state of Idaho.

The programs will all continue the incredible work they’re doing providing the veterans of their communities with our unique brand of therapy.
