Higher Ground is pleased to announce that we have expanded our military-specific program and are running our HG office in Bob Hope Patriotic Hall in downtown Los Angeles.

Higher Ground Los Angeles (HGLA) is now hosting veterans’ day programs and week-long camps!

The overarching goal is to assist those we serve in alleviating symptoms and conditions associated with service-connected TBI, PTS, MST, homelessness, and/or polytrauma. Higher Ground uses a recreational therapy treatment model designed to facilitate a positive change in perspective and ability. This model provides service members with injuries, veterans, and their supporters that HG serves with the awareness, education, functional skill development and ongoing resources for greater independence and quality of life.

HGLA Volunteer Opportunities

Higher Ground Los Angeles is seeking volunteers for week-long camps and day programs.  If you have expertise in yoga, stand up paddling, kayaking, gardening, the arts, or other recreational activities, or if you simply have a desire to make a positive impact in the lives of veterans, please contact Lauren Terschluse at 208-726-9298 ext 119 or email Lauren@highergroundLA.org.

When I came to this camp, I was spiraling from anxiety, depression related to my PTSD and TBI. I had low self-confidence and it was giving me little hope for my future. HG was so helpful, immediately I had one-on-one support…I am confident and armed with a foundation that will guide me throughout my life. I am so grateful because HG has made a difference.
