The Faith-Based Organization Fighting for Combat Vets and First Responders in a Powerful Way

Linkedin Share

Anyone who has been, or loved, a combat veteran or first responder, knows the immense struggle that can come with the job.

Their everyday life can contain horrific, sometimes unspeakably tragic things the rest of us civilians are usually insulated from. The trauma that comes with handling such things can last a lifetime, but mainstream secular support systems usually only address the superficial struggles that come along with trauma.

One organization, however, is making a deep, powerful difference in the lives of those who have served their nation and communities.
REBOOT Alliance is an organization with a heart for our veterans and FRs, and offers these men and women “hope after trauma” with their incredible faith-based program, as their website explains.

“Too often, the first to respond to the needs of others are the last to seek help for themselves following a traumatic event,” they say, but REBOOT is dedicated to changing that in an incredible way.

REBOOT’s approach includes classes aimed at helping combat veterans “recover from the spiritual and moral wounds of war,” rather than pretending those wounds aren’t there. Since 2011, they’ve helped thousands do just that.
Their twin program for first responders addresses “the critical incident stress and trauma faced by those in the law enforcement, firefighter, EMS, 911 communications, hospital emergency staff, and corrections communities,” the website continues.
Of course, the backbone of REBOOT is that their private, peer-led programs which blend “clinical insight with Christian faith-based support” serves the entire family of the veteran or FR, and is offered at no cost to participants.
REBOOT first began as a small group meeting in 2011 in the home of occupational therapist Dr. Jenny Owens and her husband, Evan. Since then, it has grown to hundreds of courses, helping thousands of men, women, and their families across the United States.
“All of our courses are free…we provide meals and childcare and really take a look at…how we can heal our souls from the trauma that we may sustain when we go through traumatic experiences downrange on deployments,” Evan Owens said in an interview with PureFlix about their program for veterans.
“When any of us go through any traumatic experience…it’s really a catalyst for a conversation about faith,” Owens added, noting the failure of secular and mainstream options for vets and FRs to address the soul of the person, not just their body and mind.
“We’re a community first and a course second,” Owens explained. “We look at what can God teach us about the human spirit and the wounding and healing of that spirit.”
