War Horse Ranch, LLC wants to provide the best possible services to each veteran who has returned from our most recent theater of war. War Horse Ranch, LLC will not charge the veteran directly for services as this should be provided free of charge considering their sacrifices and bravery for services to our great nation.
War Horse Ranch, LLC will not seek state or federal monies. As a veteran myself, I find it rather appalling that someone tells me what is best for me and this is according to research of others who are vastly different from myself. Our goal at War Horse Ranch, LLC is to seek out a sponsorship for each veteran from various companies, organizations, philanthropists and other large corporations. Since War Horse Ranch is working in a joint venture agreement with FAMILY RECOVERY COUNSELING CENTER, www.frcc-okc.com , an established 501(c)(3) agency in Oklahoma City, we will be able to utilize their private non-profit status for tax incentives, write-offs, etc. Each soldier/veteran will be able to receive the services needed without someone else from the state or federal government dictating what is best for you.
War Horse Ranch, LLC will only provide services to 8 heroes at this time. There is a reason for this number. First, it is the most therapeutic for a licensed professional to manage in a group setting. Secondly, it will allow the licensed professionals to focus more intently on the needs of the veteran. Another factor is housing. Our intentions are to provide enough housing for our nation's heroes, permanent ranch staff and managers. With that stated, ideally 4 of the veteran's structures will be for a veteran, their spouse and children. If you were deployed and separated from your family, that was difficult enough. It was hard on you, your spouse and children. We want to offer your family to receive the support services with you, not as a consumer, but as your primary support system. Everyone within the family unit may need to speak up or speak out and this will be done with the intention of strengthening the family unit together.
The other 4 slots are for single veterans. This would be a veteran who does not have a spouse or children living with them and providing direct support. These structure will allow 2 veterans to share a semi-private room The single veteran's housing will be gender specific.
Imagine this....walking through a gate and right into a "western town". Complete with a watering trough and hitching post. That's what we envision for the housing. Basically a dirt road with buildings on either side. The entire "town" will be modernized on the inside with the necessary amenities. The outside will have the look and feel of the "old west"....minus the guns and shoot outs. We want you to be able to ride your horse to your home, tie to a hitching post, walk inside and be comfortable. War Horse Ranch, LLC will strive for blending the Old West into the New World. We want you to relax and rehabilitate your mind, body & soul. We want you to do this with the comfort of home, the companionship of your horse and dog.
The veteran will be able to reside & live at "The Ranch" for 18 months. Any services received will remain completely anonymous with exception of your sponsor. Your only commitment is to honor your agreement of remaining in services for the duration of your agreed sponsorship. For more details, please contact us. We would be happy to discuss the options.
During your stay at The Ranch, you would be hired as a part-time employee of War horse Ranch, thus alleviating the disruption of your employment status. We will strive to offer you medical/dental coverage as well as begin investing in a retirement program designed for you from professionals who want to assist you in succeeding. Upon leaving "The Ranch", if you choose, you will be able to maintain your medical/dental insurance coverage, as well as your very own retirement package to take with you. You will be offered the opportunity to adopt your horse and dog for a new found life and adventure. We will provide you assistance in obtaining gainful employment as some of the sponsors are extremely veteran friendly. They want you to succeed.
War Horse Ranch is dedicated to supporting our Nation's Heroes and their family members. Send a message to others...."NO SOLDIER LEFT BEHIND"...ever!
War Horse Ranch wants to be the one place where veterans can feel supported in their return home. Civilian reintegration will be difficult. Social Readjustment will be hard. Family reunification, while inevitable, will be challenging. We want to help you, as a veteran to successfully return home safely. With the help of other veterans who are willing to openly speak with you about anything. You can visit our website for full details of what War Horse Ranch is all about. The basic idea is it's all about the soldier/veteran.
The mission of War Horse Ranch (WHR) is to provide a place of civilian/social reintegration and family reunification for the soldier/veteran who is suffering from moral injuries, post-traumatic stress, losses, and silent wars that are a result of military
