To facilitate comprehensive treatment and provide a support network for military veterans, professional athletes and their families.
The Eisenhower Center is a 30-45 day residential treatment program that pairs military veterans and retired professional athletes. Since opening four years ago, they quickly realized veterans and athletes have a natural camaraderie. They become curious about each other's experiences, which foster communication, they gain a greater sense of community, and it enhances empathy with each other. In the military and professional sports, both populations train, play, win and lose together- it only makes sense they heal together.
