Our Programs

The Ranch

We secured 140 acres in Prosser Washington to create a very special accessible "Ranch" for veterans and those closest to them to enjoy together.  The Ranch will feature multiple outdoor focused engagement and learning areas designed to accommodate a variety of physical challenges.  

Advancing multiple skills such as creative problem solving, communication, confidence, team work, and soft skills through a variety of classroom and outdoor, hands-on experiences and instruction.

Located 15 minutes NW of Benton City, WA. Empowering and inspiring, bringing veterans and their families together.

The Ranch is being built through donations of time, materials, dollars, and amazing individual volunteers, suppliers and contractors.  If you would like to be involved in designing and building the Ranch, please email Khris Beyer at kbeyer@rcentrics.com. 

Fueling Connections 2024

Are you a veteran in the Tri-Cities, WA area, who finds budgeting for additional fuel, a barrier to spending time with those that mean the most to you?  We would like to help with a $25 fuel gift card.  The intent is to provide a little help fueling connections with the ones you care about, either at our Ranch in Prosser, WA or to visit friends and family.

Provide your name, branch of service, and tell us how this would help you "fuel connections" in your life.

Connecting solutions

We get donations of all types and we strive to connect those with disabled veterans that can use them.  If you have an asset or service you would like to donate towards our Connecting Solutions Program, please email us the details. Brian@friendsofdisabledveterans.org. 

We also strive to engage other like minded veteran non-profit organizations when we can help each other serve veterans.  

Private Land Hunts and Fishing

Our program takes veterans with a family member or friend on local hunts or fishing trips. We depend on local land owners and multiple fishing guides to donate their resources to fulfill hunting and fishing trips.  We have expert fishing and hunting guides to assist veterans and a guest in their hunting and fishing trips.  

If you are a land owner or fishing guide, we would love your help in fulfilling these requests.  We have expert guides for duck, geese, upland bird, deer, and coyote who will respect rules, boundaries, and your property.  Please contact us if you are willing to host a hunt.  Or if you are a fishing guide willing to take a veterans and their guest fishing.   khris@friendsofdisabledveterans.org. 

If you are a veteran interested in these activities, email us.  

scissor lift Blind

We have a mobile, scissor lift blind for placement on property we hunt. We’ve rebuilt the safety deck on the lift and added some desert paint, so it will blend into the surroundings. The lift came from a local, anonymous donor who wanted to support our cause of giving back to our veterans. This community has been great in giving to our cause and supporting our veterans!

Our first hunt with the new blind was in one of the local vineyards with a Navy veteran and his brother. A heartfelt thank you to those that made this hunt successful.

We look forward to each hunting season and taking veterans out with our blinds. We are able to get the veteran up over 40 feet, so they have an unobstructed 360 degree view. A special thanks to Ranch and Home and the Dress Family, Signs by Sue, Northwest Jet Boats, Sunbelt Rentals, and other generous companies that wish to remain anonymous. We could not have started this great cause without you.
