My Warrior’s Place is a Retreat Center for Veterans, Military Service Members, Law Enforcement Officers, Fire Fighters, Gold Star, Blue Star and Silver Star Families.
My Warrior’s Place offers several amazing programs for those who have put their life on the line for our safety and wellbeing, endured the death of a Fallen Warrior, and/or experienced the horrors of war. Each program offered by My Warrior’s Place plays an important role in the healing and coping process, and the support that is obtained through these programs is priceless!
My Warrior’s Place was founded by Kelly Kowall whose son Corey, like so many others, gave his life for our continued freedom. My Warrior’s Place, and all those involved with My Warrior’s Place, understand that there are no words that can express how grateful we are to those who make the sacrifice by serving in the Armed Forces so that we have the opportunity to live in the land of the free, and additionally, how thankful we are to those who serve in Fire Fighting or in Law Enforcement so that we are safe and secure on our home front. There are absolutely no words that can be said to comfort those families whose loved one(s) gave the ultimate sacrifice while protecting us and our country. We will never be able to thank you enough.
The entire operation is run and maintained by volunteers and there are many maintenance-related tasks that continually be done, as well as many other vitally important needs.
