Welcome to the Invisible Wounds Project Support Center!

Located in Forest Lake, the Invisible Wounds Project Support Center will annually serve thousands of military, police, fire, EMS, frontline medical staff, corrections, public safety telecommunicators, and their families related to mental health, PTSD, and suicide issues.

Over the past 5 years, one of the most common requests we’ve received from clients is the wish for a judgment-free place where they could connect with others who have similar experiences, and understand what they are going through. The support center will provide that and much more. Once complete this 11,500 square foot facility will have a lounge/game room area where those we serve and their families can connect with each other, while playing games such as billiards, darts, bubble hockey, and more. The center will also house our woodworking and art therapy program, a yoga/exercise studio, physical recovery space, group and individual therapy space, a demonstration kitchen, and office space for IWP staff and therapists. The healthy connection to others that will take place here is a key component to improving the lives of those we serve. The center will be staffed by volunteers and Invisible Wounds Project staff, including our very own therapy dog “Moose” who is specifically trained to assist clients.

Make a Difference!

While we’ve saved and set aside money for the initial space and facility, completing the build-out and running the life-changing programs requires your help and support! Please help us reach our goal so that we can completely build out the space, and show those who have and continue to serve that they are not alone, and they are not forgotten.

Other Ways to Help:

  • SPONSOR A ROOM OR SPACE. We have several separate room sponsorship opportunities available.
  • DONATE TOOLS, PRODUCTS, OR LABOR. As we build the space out, we have a significant need for products such as lumber, flooring, wall covering, countertops, office furniture, etc. We also are looking to get as many tools/equipment that we would use in the woodworking/art space donated, as well as products.
  • VOLUNTEER. We will need many volunteers to help get this done, from skilled to unskilled laborers, and everyone in between. VOLUNTEER FORM
