We are actively pursuing land purchasing opportunities in the outlying areas of Tri-Cities, WA which will become the central hub of our Eastern Washington operations.
A LOCAL 501(C)3 NON-PROFIT SUPPORTING LOCAL DISABLED VETERANS
Our mission is to empower and inspire by providing an outdoor location where disabled veterans and their families go to unwind and relax.
Serving Disabled Veterans throughout the Tri-Cities and Lower Valley
Friends of Disabled Veterans supports disable veterans by offering a place where they can enjoy indoor activities and outdoor adventures with their family and friends. This is an environment of support, appreciation and respect. The goal is to help disabled veterans feel completely accepted and included in a fun, relaxing environment.
As part of our program, we take disabled veterans, along with a family member or friend, on local hunts. We have acquired access to private land from landowners who wanted to give back to our disabled veterans who have given so much for us and our country. Our members have helped design and create unique scissor lifts on trailers that our veterans use to reach heights up to 20 feet, allowing them to view the surrounding area for their hunt.
We have acquired significant acreage to allow us to fulfill our dream of a weekend retreat for disabled veterans and their families. The resort is being built in stages and is currently available for hunting expeditions.
Once complete, veterans will also have access to a stunning lodge, a do-it-yourself garden, a traditional archery range, and a children’s playground —all ADA compliant. Activities will include hunting, horseback riding, indoor/outdoor gatherings, gardening, and archery. All of which will be designed specifically for ADA compliance.
There are also plans to provide support services such as counseling, budget planning, and horse therapy. All programs and services will be offered at no cost to the veteran or their family.
- Obtain Significant Acreage - DONE!
- Conduct Guided Hunts - HAPPENING NOW!
- Drill a Well
- Build a Lodge
- Create a Playground
- Plant Crops
- Acquire Donations - Monetary and Goods
Currently, there is not a location for our veterans specifically designed with these needs in mind. Since 2016, our members/volunteers have worked diligently to raise the money needed to purchase the much-needed acreage here in Eastern Washington to fulfill this dream.
We need your help in giving back to our heroes that have given and sacrificed so much. Anything you can afford will help us reach our goal! To donate, visit our Go Fund Me Page by clicking the button below.
