HOW empowers heroes to decompress and reconnect with themselves and their families while becoming part of a lifelong community.

Volunteer-Led Chapters

Our chapter kayak fishing events are organized by dedicated groups of volunteers at no cost to participants and their families.

There is no prior experience or equipment required for our participants. Recurring activities provide participants with consistent access to healing support as well as involvement in a community of people with shared experiences.
