About Lone Survivor Foundation:
Founded in 2010 by retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, Lone Survivor Foundation’s mission is to restore, empower and renew hope for wounded service members and their families through health, wellness and therapeutic support. LSF hosts therapeutic retreats for service members with Post Traumatic Stress, mild Traumatic Brain Injury, Chronic Pain, and Military Sexual Trauma. LSF host retreats for individual service members (from all conflicts), couples, and families, as well as separate retreats for care partners. Retreat attendees partake in psychoeducational group sessions and individual counseling, as well as Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) using the EAGALA model, neuro-feedback, combat-trauma specific yoga and other cutting-edge modalities. All of these services are provided at no cost to the service members or families through the generous support of donors and sponsors, and through fundraising events around the country.

LSF is steadily growing their program to meet the needs of their increasing waiting list. LSF has increased the number of retreats held from 16 in 2015 to 31 in 2016; this year, the Foundation is hosting 43 retreats. LSF owns one retreat facility in Crystal Beach, Texas, and is currently renting additional facilities in order to carry out its important work.
