Warrior’s Journey Home Welcomes You
Our mission is to provide spiritual healing and soul repair of the invisible wounds for veterans, families and the community. It takes a community to heal the invisible, moral injuries and wounds of war.
Who We Are
The Warriors’ Journey Home (WJH) is a non-profit (501c3) organization. We welcome veterans who served, along with their family members and friends who want to participate, in welcoming the veterans home. We are a non-political, non-sectarian ministry.
What We Offer
Warriors’ Journey Home Ministry is dedicated to support and assist our veterans, their families and our society during their military service and their return home.
We offer a safe place for:
How We Serve
The Sacred Path of the Warrior
The Warrior's Path
Service of Healing
The weekly or bi-weekly meetings of WJH are called “Healing Circle”. The Healing Circle is designed around the culture of the host organization. Some may use Native American ceremony while others use traditional religious practices. The common factor is the unique experience of the veteran and their family expressed through a sacred ritual through reconciliation and spiritual ceremonies. WHJ is a non-political, non-sectarian group.
The spiritual work or service of our Education efforts are sensitive to the needs and issues of civilians, care providers, faith communities, businesses, schools and courts. We offer Palliative Care to those in need of spiritual healing the indivisible/moral injuries, wounds of war.
WJH provides three essential elements for a person to be well: Community, Healing, and Ritual. The Healing Circles provide the safe ‘container’ for veterans and People of Strong Heart (civilians) to tell their story, listened to with a compassionate heart, and offer the soul healing necessary for wellness. Each Healing Circle adapts their ceremony to the needs of the individuals within the Healing Circle.

Healing the Soul’s Wound: A Heart & Soul Liturgy
Healing The Soul’s Wound: A Heart & Soul Liturgy, is an answer to a frequently asked question by clergy charged with the task of leading worship: “How do I write a service of worship for Veteran’s Day or Memorial Day honoring the veteran for their service and remain religious without becoming nationalistic?”
