About Us

Healing Hearts in Hope Veteran's Retreat Center,(HHHVRC), is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization founded by Teresa "Flying Eagle" Baird. Teresa's husband, William L. Baird, was a Vietnam Veteran who later took his own life as a result of delayed stress, (PTSD). Teresa has set aside 17 acres of their land for the benefit of American Veterans who are in need of hope and healing. This beautiful rain forest, nestled at the base of Mt. Pilchuck, near Granite Falls, Washington, provides inspiration and offers opportunity to Veterans to heal and find internal peace.

100% of all donations goes to Healing Hearts in Hope Veteran's Retreat Center

To help our Veterans.

 "Give your heart to our Veterans for they are the heart of this country"

Our Mission Statement

We work together to reach out to Veterans and their families who are dealing with the issues associated with military deployment, war zone stress and reintegration. We offer a quiet, peaceful place for Veterans and their families to go to relax and get back to nature. We are here to support all Veterans of all wars and offer them a safe place to camp, fish, hike and enjoy nature. Healing Hearts in Hope Veteran’s Retreat Center is a place for Veterans to find and talk to other Veterans. A place to discover that you are not alone and there are people that truly care.
