About Us


THE MISSION of the So Brave Foundation is to provide veterans, and their family caregivers struggling with PTS (Post Traumatic Stress) and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) access to various healing modalities, education and encouragement not currently available through the VA Healthcare System.

OUR GOAL is to provide healing, education and encouragement, FREE of charge, for those seeking healing beyond narcotics & prescription medications.

IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM PTSD/PTS or TBI, please come on by.  The setting is informal, and we do not take or record personal details such as would be affected by privacy act laws (HIPPA).  Your privacy and comfort matter!



IF YOU ARE A HEALER, we ask that you consider helping out at the clinic located downstairs in the Veterans Museum at Balboa Park on the 2nd Saturday of each month, from 12 to 4pm.  Come say hi, and let's see if this is for you.  🙂

IF YOU ARE A SUPPORTER, we gratefully accept donations, to offset administrative costs and mission efforts.   It will be a few more days til our web person can put the donation button up. (She's on volunteer time, and learning WordPress as fast as she can...)  In the interim, please contact us for info on how we can accept funding.

IF YOU ARE A WEBMASTER, or know WordPress and would be willing to help out, even just once a month, Cj REALLY wants to hear from you!  Please contact her at:  WhiteElephantRodeo@gmail.com
