Resilient Retreat recently held a wall-signing celebration to celebrate the last beam of its new Resilient Retreat Center being lifted into place. Two interior walls were signed by supporters, the construction team, architects, designers and local dignitaries for posterity.

Since 2019, Resilient Retreat has treated more than 400 trauma victims, including survivors of abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence, first responders, and helping professionals such as teachers and nurses. In October 2020, the organization began construction on a new 84-acre retreat center at 13010 Fruitville Road in Sarasota. Upon completion in 2022, Resilient Retreat will be able to further expand its capabilities and capacity to offer healing services to the community, including neurofeedback, yoga, meditation, massage, time in nature, gardening and support groups, as well as enhancing self-care skills through workshops on healthy cooking, journaling and more. Once construction is complete, multi-day retreats will be added to the slate of services.
