About this Event

Please join us on February 22 at The Mount Vernon Grand Hotel for a night of fun and relaxation! We will have a catered dinner at the Grand catered and then enjoy a Sip and Paint session across the street at The Makery. We will then spend the night in the luxurious rooms of The Grand. The next morning after the continental breakfast provided by the hotel, we will take part in a spousal academy.

We are proud to announce our instructor Dr. Tracy Elder. Dr. Tracy is the author of "Climb Every Mountain: A Chaplain's Story", founder of the International Alliance of Chaplain Corps, and is certified in family mediation.

As the wife of a first responder there are many challenges to overcome that if not careful, could damage our marriages, families, friendships, and even our mental and spiritual health. While sometimes these challenges seem impossible to overcome and even though they are certainly unique to our first responder families, there are ways to navigate through these storms.

The Half Units was created as spousal support for those who are married to police officers, deputies, firefighters, chaplains, and EMTs in an effort to help spouses cope with the various stressors in our lives and as a way to strengthen relationships with one another.
