Tim Kirk, Ph.D., Col, USAF is the founder and director of Warrior Healing Center
The Warrior Healing Center (WHC) is an elegant solution to a very real need. Sierra Vista is a community that cares about the military and our veterans, and the WHC represents the support of community provides to our veteran families. Before the WHC, there were dozens of great veteran service organizations in place to enrich the lives of our veterans, but they were spread out, hard to find and often lacked unity of effort. The WHC transformed that into a "one stop" location where these teams come together to collaborate and better improve the lives of the veteran families they serve. The WHC also pulls in a variety of healing services provided at no cost to veterans and their families. Services such as Soldier's Best Friend service dog training with modern indoor training facilities, art classes, fitness classes, PTSD support, PTSD Tapping therapy, Flutes for Vets Native American Flute Circles, holistic health options, equine activities, and more!
The Warrior Healing Center is also a place were veterans can just hang out, have some coffee and share stories. We offer support for veteran families across the spectrum of needs from crisis to encouraging veterans to launch their own pioneering activities and events and find their passion. The WHC features a media studio that runs a 24/7 livestream on half a dozen social media outlets, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitch, DLive and more. That microphone is available to veterans and their families, as well as our Warrior Healing Team, to discuss any topic they'd like--from an opinion on any topic to discussion on a favorite hobby. It is also a place to inform people and to promote community events. If you are a veteran or family member or a community member who would like to give some love back to the ones who have put it all on the line for our freedom, please come visit to see what we're all about! If you have a program you'd like to see, come on down and let's work together.
