Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem we are working on is Veteran homelessness. While there has been great strides in reducing the number of homeless Veterans, there are still way to many. The number of homeless Veterans published, also cannot give a true number of Veterans actually homeless as many Female Veterans, and many Veterans with families do not identify as being homeless for fear of having their children taken away, or fear of the military due to past traumas. We aim to put them into a community that will not only house and feed them, but give them all the support , structure and comradery that will allow them to rebuild their lives to once again become self-sufficient, productive members of society.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to have 100% of the Veterans that walk through our doors, gain back their self-respect, their self-worth, and gain the tools they need to never again have to face being homeless. Our goal is to have the spouses and children of our Veterans that have been living on the streets or other places not meant for human habitat, to gain back their feeling of being safe, and also by having other people around them that have gone through the difficulties they have, it will help in their healing. Our goal is to build a community that will give our homeless Veterans the therapy, the OJT, the resume writing and interview preparedness, and any other tool they need to get back on their feet. Our size goal is to eventually own 200+ acres that our community can grow in to.

We are not trying to reinvent the wheel. Our strategy is to take proven methods that are currently being used to help our homeless Veterans, but put them all in one place, one community. Our community will be able to address the physical needs, the emotional needs, and the spiritual needs. We will have a farm to not only feed the community, but for therapy and OJT for those that want to go into farming. Also, to sell the excess in our country store and local restaurants to bring back funds to help support the community. Both of which can be used as employment for the Veterans, spouses and children (age appropriate), and also as OJT for those that might want to go into retail management or sales. We will have a culinary institute which will be used for therapy, food prep. for the community and also OJT for those that wish to go into a culinary field. Every aspect of the community will be used for healing, training and support to maintain the community.

Our main capability is in our people. Each of our board members bring a unique talent to the table. Collectively there is business management, agricultural, Veterans affairs, community relations and engagement, organizational management and more. We have people from not only our local community but throughout the state that are champions for our organization, and are constantly opening new doors to insure the growth and success of our organization.

It is difficult for a start-up to obtain funding or obtain public acceptance. We have started receiving donations on our website, and people are buying the products we sell on our website in which 100% of the proceeds go to help us build our community. We have people that are willing to help us in the different aspects of our community. For example, we have a Veterinarian that has said he will help with the pets that are brought to the community. We have a Navy Vet. and Le Cordon Blue trained chef that has said he will help with the training and food prep. We have a Navy Vet with years of construction that is helping with getting donations for building supplies and volunteers to build the structures that our community will need. We have artists that will help with our art therapy program. We already have had our first write up in the newspaper. So our foundation to build upon is well underway. Next will be the acquisition of the land to begin helping our homeless female Veterans.
