The Respite Center helps Military Families reintegrate into society by providing a place of respite and addressing the mental health and cognitive needs of warriors and their families after returning from war. While staying at NFO’s Respite Center at NO CHARGE for up to five nights, Military Families have the opportunity to share strategies for overcoming obstacles while building the bonds of fellowship and friendship. The Respite Center brings the community together and establishes connections with other service members & Gold Star Families, both injured and non-injured and civilians. These connections are very influential in feeling supported and easing the reintegration process into their homes and community.
Over six hundred thirty (630) Military Families members are served every year at the Military Family Respite Center. Not Forgotten Outreach provides services for 4,000+ Military Families each year through our other programs. Over 16,000 volunteer hours and $180,000 in-kind-donation since Feb 2015 have gone into remodeling the Respite Center.
The NFO Military Respite Center also serves as a central location for NFO’s Taos Veterans Farming Project & NFO’s Adaptive Sports Program. The six (6)- bedroom, seven (7)- bathroom house on a 2-acre parcel is utilized by Military Families as a place of respite, as well as to learn about agriculture, VA benefits/programs, and peer-to-peer counseling.
NFO’s Military Family Respite Center offers the following:
• Taos Veterans Farming Project to learn basic skills & best practices for sustainable farming for business or hobby
