Forward Free is launching a new and exciting initiative to meet urgent needs among law enforcement officers (LEOs) and their families. We need your help through generous financial giving, event volunteering, and earnest prayer.
"Meet pressing needs…”
LEOs are increasingly challenged with an array of interrelated mental, physical, spiritual, and relational health issues. These have been intensified by recent social events. Read our blog, “Our Amazing Police Officers.” Officers are being physically attacked, marginalized, and isolated. They are understaffed, overworked, morally discouraged, and spiritually in need. Some are quitting; some struggle with substance abuse; some are losing hope; and, most sadly, some are committing suicide. These problems also take a toll on marriages and family relationships. A crisis exists within American law enforcement.
“Path Forward” workshops will take place in a relaxing hotel setting. LEOs and, if married, their spouses, will have opportunities to engage with experts across 20 critical topics in the areas of mental, relational, physical, and spiritual health. Optional marital, spiritual, and mental health private advising sessions will also be offered.
During 2022, “Path Forward” workshops are currently planned to be held in Orlando, Lincoln/Omaha, Tampa, and Seattle. Workshops will follow in other U.S. cities, such as (in alphabetical order):
Forward Free plans to address these problems by bringing hope and strength to LEOs and their families through informative and uplifting “Path Forward” workshops to be held in metro areas across the United States. Such workshops will deliver practical help very soon and at a modest cost. While other groups only help with one problem area, we will be comprehensive, providing support across mental, relational, spiritual, and physical health areas.

Later, Forward Free will expand workshops to disabled veterans, firefighters, and emergency medical services personnel; lease private facilities for family retreats for foster families, missionaries, and pastors; and, purchase facilities for the comprehensive care of LEOs and other groups. Larger and more capable “LIFE RANCHES” will be pursued when feasible.
Donations are sought to underwrite the costs of the LEO workshops planned for 2022. This includes funds needed for hotel venues, quality speakers, staffing, and follow-up support.
Help us meet these pressing needs. There are many ways you can give:
• Attend fundraisers planned for Nebraska, Florida, and Washington state
• By mail: PO Box 6685, Lincoln, NE 68506.
• Donate stock through the Forward Free Foundation (donor avoids capital gains tax and earns bigger tax deductions; Forward Free receives larger donation!).
