THE FARM OBJECTIVES:


Establish a recreational / retreat area for military active duty, veterans (highly focused on disabled veterans especially those suffering from PTSD), Jr ROTC classes from the local high schools and first responders with facilities that:

  • Provide a safe, stress free, therapeutic environment that encourages personal interaction and open communication.
  • An environment that memories and feeling can be freely communicated.
  • Develop facilities that are accessible to veterans and first responders with limited disabilities
  • Provide interactive facilities that meet the needs of the local Jr. ROTC units’ educational requirements in a fun environment

PLANNED ACTIVITIES:

  • ​1 on 1 & group discussion facilitation:  This is the Primary function of The Farm.  Owned and maintained by a disabled vet, The Farm has been a place of healing for him that he wants to share with others that have faced the same challenges.  The quiet countryside, the comradeship of fellow veterans that have similar experiences. It is place of meditation that lets one search and hopefully recognize / understand what the memories, often mentally locked away, are doing to them.  In the short time that the site has been available to other Veterans many have made significant progress in their fight with PTSD and helped a number of people to simply cope with the stress of fitting back into civilian life.  The Farm is a sanctuary where no one is standing in judgement; no one is under pressure to share anything they are not ready to bring into the light.  We strive to aid each other to fight the demons that most combat veterans carry with them every day and this is the area that we hope to see grow and provide support to many more people.  

     THE FARM is a NO ALCOHOL or ILLEGAL DRUG venue.


.    We provide assistance on disability claims by inviting representatives from the Veterans Administration, Disabled American Veterans,

     Veterans of Foreign Wars, and other organizations to provide guidance in following the proper process for filing claims that get approved

     faster.
