Our Purpose

“Ed, you and Soldier’s Heart are willing to empty the spiritual, psychological and sometimes real ‘bedpans’ of individual broken lives and assist in the necessary work of healing.”
CH(COL) Mike Lembke, Army Chaplain

Soldier’s Heart, founded in 2006, tends the invisible wounds resulting from war and military service. These wounds are now commonly called “PTSD”; during the Civil War, they were known as “Soldier’s Heart.”

Soldier’s Heart believes that these “soul wounds” are sacred and, properly tended, can lead to wisdom and transformation. We offer genuine homecoming and a path for post-traumatic growth to troops, veterans, families, and communities. Our mission focuses on veterans and their families but transcends their wounding to include the entire society.
