At this time, Rotary House Retreat is navigating some rather detailed administrative and structural changes that will solidify and clarify our mission, vision, and goals. When this process is completed, we will be known by a different name, but will provide the same specialized services and retreat opportunities to First Responders in need.
Regrettably, we will not be conducting our spring retreat scheduled for March, but we are accepting applications NOW for our fall retreat scheduled for October 20-25.
During this transitional time, we continue to dedicate ourselves to serving First Responders who are struggling with the stress- and trauma-related symptoms associated with the public safety professions.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
There is HELP. There is HOPE.
Being a First Responder, you may be routinely exposed to critical incidents. You may reject, deny, and/or suppress your normal reactions to these abnormal events believing they are not appropriate for someone in your profession. You may look to your peers to see if they too are experiencing anything similar, and not seeing any evidence, you may hide your reactions from your peers, loved ones, and even yourself. You may feel shame that you are “not able to handle it” and believe you are alone in this experience.
