Warfighter Ranch's Mission, through the spirit of God, holistic means, faith-based teachings, the heart of community, and the empowerment of oneself we are helping to heal the hearts, minds, and souls of Warfighters and their families.
Our veterans that fight for our freedoms serve at a very high cost. Our nation’s warfighters are among the most at-risk groups for suicide. This overwhelming sustained and unresolved trauma has led to 22 veterans a day committing suicide, while the divorce rate for our combat veteran community hovers at 80%.
Warfighter Ranch will offer a 30-day program where 12-24 veterans and their families are healed through Christ. The veteran and their family will be assessed before they enter the program to individualize their needs. The families will sign the program contract as well as the veteran, as we will need complete cooperation from the whole family for the success of the veterans healing. In the first three weeks the veteran will be attending the individually tailored program at the ranch with other Warfighters. The family members will be briefed weekly at home. In the final week, the family will be brought up for individual, couple, and family Spiritual Therapy. Along with the therapy there will be reintegration and bonding moments carefully set for the family and their veteran. At the end of the four weeks, the family will go home with the ability to adapt and thrive together.
Now THAT is what we're all about! We aim to heal the Warfighters of our nation with intention, purpose, and with Christ at the center of it all!
We're fervently praying for a location near the temperate climate of Prescott, Arizona - where Warriors AND THEIR FAMILIES will be welcome to grow, heal, and succeed!
