To the Active Heroes Community:
Hi! My name is Pat Fox and it is my honor to serve as the Executive Director of Active Heroes. I am reminded daily of the resiliency and sacrifices of the veterans I talk to and the community support that exists. As a veteran myself, I understand the vital nature of our core mission, to provide programs that help heal Veteran’s.
I wholeheartedly believe Active Heroes can best serve veterans and their families by focusing our efforts on the retreat center in Shepherdsville, KY while partnering with other existing organizations to provide a full array of services. And since I was asked to lead this organization in early 2021- we are doing just that. In late March, we opened up our retreat center for a community open house, making sure that more veterans hear about the services and opportunity we offer. We entered into a partnership with Engage, Equine Assisted Therapies and have other exciting things in motion for the retreat center like a fishing pond, Disc Golf Course, and expanded hiking and running trails.
Active Heroes is hard at work on behalf of our veterans— stay tuned because we are just getting started!
