“Don’t let Everest be the greatest thing you ever do.”

What Erik’s guide, PV, meant was “make it matter.”  Summits are like trophies.  What matters most is not that you collect them to simply gather dust but that you take that experience and elevate the world.  Erik has since dedicated his life to building No Barriers, dedicated to helping people see and navigate the world despite the challenges they face.  After years of learning from people on the front lines of shattering barriers, the No Barriers Life emerged – the formula for helping people harness adversity to live their best life.  If you know Erik you know that his passion and purpose is helping others find their light.  Call it strength, determination or even hope, No Barriers will continue to help shift the lens through which they navigate the challenges in their lives.  With your help No Barriers will continue to impact tens of thousands of lives every year.  Make your gift today!

family caregivers at No Barriers Caregiver’s Retreat

The work of family caregivers is often invisible or hidden.  We see you!  Navigating caregiving responsibilities is daunting and isolating.  The No Barriers Caregiver Program recognizes the gap that exists for caregivers.  We know that caregivers can experience extreme mental and physical exhaustion and loss of self.  No Barriers helps caregivers address trauma and grief, find forgiveness, rediscover self, build community, and heal.

Family Caregivers are an often forgotten part of the process when any family experiences a drastic change.  More than ever, there’s a need to provide opportunities for caregivers to practice self-care, build community and find their own dreams and goals outside the caregiver role.  No Barriers’ Caregiver Program offers caregivers the opportunity to step out of their caregiver role and engage in conversation, activities, and building meaningful community.   There are 53 million adult and youth caregivers in the U.S.  It’s likely that you know someone who is a caregiver.  It could be you, a neighbor, a sibling, or co-worker.  Nearly one in five are providing unpaid care to someone with health or functional needs.  In addition to being a parent or spouse, sibling or loved one, they wear other hats – chef, assistant, stylist, chauffeur, advocate and nurse, but mostly they are loving caregivers who selflessly serve with no pay or time off.  No Barriers Caregivers is a safe place for our caregiver community to find their rope team, support each other, and rediscover hope.

“It’s been so hard to find words to describe an experience that has completely left me speechless.  Signing up I had fully prepared myself to represent and dissect the caregiver I’ve become.  What I wasn’t prepared for was the (re)discovery of myself.  I found myself questioning “Am I living – or just alive?” With the help of No Barriers I left our time together with a sense of self and the fuel to add to my fire.  As a veteran spouse caregiver, who also cares for our child with epilepsy, and someone who grew up in a caregiving home with a disabled parent, I had no idea what I was getting myself into and no idea how much my DNA required a reset.  I’ve dedicated every day since my return to reminding myself of my strength and that I’m a “Climber.”  The impact you have had on my life is priceless…irreplaceable…and I’ll be forever grateful.”
