The community is invited to learn about a new program being offered to veterans during an open house Sunday afternoon at Cedar Hill Enrichment Center.

Through a new partnership, Cedar Hill and Veteran’s Heart Georgia are teaming up to offer a series of retreats specially designed for veterans.

The program will feature offerings such as yoga, meditation and horticulture therapy.

Veteran’s Heart Georgia is a nonprofit organization that, according to its Web site, seeks to “foster the healing of veterans of all wars by attending to the spiritual and emotional needs of veterans, their families and communities.”

During the open house, which is set for 2 to 4 p.m., the community can learn how to get involved with the retreat program, whether through financial donations, volunteer service or providing supplies.

Kat Stratton, director of Cedar Hill, said in a statement that “community involvement is vital in assisting our military veterans heal from the effects of war.”

“Community support is essential as we seek to offer this special retreat program series to our veterans and service members at low or no cost to them,” she said.
