Our Mission

The Travis Mills Foundation supports post 9/11 recalibrated 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.

We support these veterans through our nationally recognized retreat located in the Belgrade Lakes Region of Maine. Veteran families who have been injured in active duty or as a result of their service to our nation receive an all-inclusive, all-expenses paid, barrier-free vacation in Maine where they participate in adaptive activities, bond with other veteran families, and enjoy much-needed rest and relaxation in Maine’s outdoors.

In 2017 we hosted 84 veteran families that participated in adaptive sports and activities. Those activities included:

Our Vision

The Travis Mills Foundation has created a fully accessible retreat for combat injured veterans and their families.

The Travis Mills Foundation 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 was recently renovated and opened for veterans and their families in the summer of 2017. The retreat helps 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. 

We offer 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.
