The Travis Mills Foundation supports combat injured veterans and their families through long term programs that help these heroic men and women overcome physical obstacles, strengthen their families, and provide well-deserved rest and relaxation.
During Travis’s recovery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Travis was a mentor and leader to other recalibrated warriors at the facility earning him the nickname: “Mayor of Building 62.” In the midst of Travis’s journey to his new normal, Travis and his family travelled to Crested Butte, Colorado where he participated in adaptive sports. This trip to Crested Butte had a profound impact on Travis and his family, and they had a vision to bring recalibrated warriors to their new home state of Maine so that these warriors could continue their recovery and rehabilitation.
The Travis Mills Foundation is creating a fully accessible retreat for combat injured veterans and their families. The retreat will be a uniquely designed, fully accessible comfortable lodge for relaxation, adaptive sports and family recreation.
The Travis Mills Foundation has purchased the historic Maine Chance Lodge originally built in 1929 by cosmetics pioneer, Elizabeth Arden. Located in Rome, Maine, the lodge was the nation’s first elite spa dedicated to serving celebrities. The lodge is currently being renovated and scheduled to open for veterans and their families in the summer of 2017. The retreat will fill a vital role in the recovery, camaraderie, spousal support, reconnection, relaxation and reintegration of our military heroes – a true and lasting symbol of a grateful nation. The Travis Mills Foundation offers you the opportunity to join our mission to benefit and assist combat-injured veterans and their families. Donations and sponsorships are critical to achieving our mission; accordingly, we are sincerely grateful for every dollar donated to the Travis Mills Foundation.
