Boulder Crest was founded by Ken Falke and Julia Falke. Ken spent 21-years in the US Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) community and retired as a Master Chief Petty Officer. Halfway through Ken’s career, he was severely injured in a parachuting accident and after healing, went on to make over 1000 parachute jumps and lead men and women on thousands of high-risk missions. Ken’s personal story is a great example of Posttraumatic Growth.

During the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, hundreds of EOD warriors were injured and killed on the battlefields. Ken and Julia visited many of the wounded EOD warriors and their families and witnessed firsthand the care they received.

Ken and Julia felt that these brave men and women and their families deserved more support and care than what was available to them. The Falkes started their personal journey of philanthropy by hosting veterans and their families for meals and short stays at their home, but they knew there was more work to be done.

In 2010, the Falkes donated 37 acres of their property and made a substantial financial investment to establish Boulder Crest Foundation.

From this generous act and the tireless efforts from a passionate team of individuals and an incredibly supportive community, Boulder Crest forged ahead developing a new approach to train combat veterans, first responders, and their families to transform their struggles to strength. We call it PATHH — Progressive and Alternative Training for Healing Heroes.
