We are Advancing Warriors International, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit created by retired USAF Major and Psychiatrist Ellie Stevens, chosen as a Top Doctor in the Denver Area, to provide a space for men and women Veterans, service members, and emergency responders to rise above the stressors and traumas they have faced and to reconnect with God and one another.

This program is designed to break through barriers and allow military, veteran, and emergency responder men and women to rise above adversity brought on by life events, relationships, trauma, combat, and on the job stressors. It equips people to learn how to see themselves as so much more than products of their experiences and whom others in their lives have defined them to be. Break the cycle of fear, stagnation, avoidance, and isolation. Join an authentic tribe of people who have been through the darkest night and are climbing out of the shadows and back on the mountain top. These groups are led by Veterans, military members, and first responders who have been through their own struggles and hardships and now want to help their brothers and sisters heal and experience an abundant life. Take action and find your mission and motivation for life. Join a team of people that will work together to break down walls and barriers to healing, health, and success. All groups have remote clinical supervision of a board certified Psychiatrist as well as free Psychiatric care offered to those participants who need it. 

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”


Our Mission

We are Advancing Warriors. Our mission is to rise above and reconnect to an authentic community and to God.


Our Vision

Despite the tremendous efforts of the government and the VA to provide care for the men and women who have sacrificed so much for this country, 23 veterans are ending their lives every day. Ultimately, our vision is to help provide a platform that offers holistic support in the form of 8-week groups, monthly meet-ups, peer support mountain retreats, and the opportunity for free psychiatric care based on each individual's needs in order to help combat isolation, suicide, and post-traumatic stress.
