At Hoplite Resilience Center, we have a strong culture of growth, support, and encouragement grounded by our guiding values of integrity, duty, and loyalty.

Our Hoplite Resilience staff share an ethos – a set of guiding beliefs and ideals that represent our organization and our people. Our ethos inspires people to rebound and thrive…that is what our center is all about. An ethos can sometimes be hard to describe, but you know it when you see it. We demonstrate our ethos by our action, not by simply stating it.

Hoplite Ethos: The Hoplite Ethos was developed using four words that uniquely describes the Hoplite Resilience Center and differentiates our organization from others. Our ethos makes our Center distinctive. The Hoplite Ethos is displayed outwardly and used as energy for action. The Hoplite Ethos is resilience, passion, people, and commitment, and we live it in deed every day.

Our nation’s law enforcement officers have one of the toughest jobs in the nation. Every day, they risk their lives to keep the peace and protect our neighborhoods from criminals. Due to the stressful nature of their occupations, law enforcement officers need better access to mental health services to improve their health and help alleviate the anxiety that is a byproduct of their jobs.
