Support. Growth. Recovery.
Empowering military veterans through faith, recreational horseback riding and other outdoor therapy activities by focusing on one’s ability rather than disability.
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
WHO WE ARE
Veterans Helping Veterans
At Camp Liberty we’re committed to providing our veterans with exceptional care and Christian fellowship in a compassionate, friendly and relaxing atmosphere. Located just outside of Marietta, IL, Camp Liberty is the only nonprofit of it's kind in the area. We have an outstanding and qualified team. We believe that our veterans deserve the respect, care and treatment that they have earned.
Our goals are to provide veterans with the tools and resources necessary for reintegration back into the communities, with their families, their children and friends. To give them some kind of stability in order to live a meaningful life.
Whether you’re attending our horseback riding program, coming in for individual or marriage counseling, group therapy, peer support or Bible study, our dedicated team has the skills and resources to manage all your mental health and spiritual needs.
Camp Liberty is dedicated to the memory of it's founder and Executive Director's son-in-law SPC Kyle Thomas Yerian who lost his battle with combat related PTSD within months of returning home to Fort Bliss Texas from a deployment to Afghanistan in March of 2018.
By April of 2018, the work began to build and establish a charitable military veteran organization to help put an end to what is a national crisis of veteran suicide. With more than 8,000 military veterans taking their own lives each year, there was no other issue more urgent than this to take up and bring awareness to.
