Returning Healthy Veterans To America

Give Help

How you can help

The most impactful way you can help the National Center for Healthy Veterans in its mission is by referring a Veteran to our program. Referring a Veteran is easy: simply contact us at the telephone number or email address below or fill in and submit a referral form. Upon referral, a member of the Valor Farm Veteran Care Council (VCC) will contact you within 24 hours to conduct an initial telephone interview and initiate the application process. Upon receipt of the application, the VCC will conduct a screening, which includes a background check, records review, and an interview. The second way you can help NCHV is by funding our movement through a tax-deductible donation. You can also help by volunteering at Valor Farm.

The Potential

Value of Our Veterans

Our Veterans are a national treasure.  All have pledged to support and defend the Constitution of the United States with a blank check for their very lives to defend freedoms for each of us.  These Heroes have served alongside every race and creed and uniquely understand that we all bleed the same red blood. One of their fundamental values is respect for others. 

The National Center for Healthy Veterans helps Veterans achieve their full God-given potential through community, dignified work and advancement opportunities, faith-based recovery and life skills programs, and a natural healing environment.

The Healthy Veterans initiative is a tremendous service to the health of our nation’s Veterans and equips them to continue serving.  The United States needs Veterans more than ever before – as leaders, as role models of racial understanding and reconciliation, as moral standard bearers, and as valuable contributors within every home and marketplace of America.

“Our veterans need America and America needs Healthy Veterans.”

Profile Of Those We Serve

The National Center for Healthy Veterans serves at-risk veterans who are willing to invest nine-months at Valor Farm for a “reset and restart”. We expect them to commit to change, be willing to work toward optimizing their daily performance, and restore relationships. PATRIOTS are selected through a thorough referral and application process which matches their needs with NCHV programs and resources.

The Solution

Bringing It All Together

The National Center for Healthy Veterans (NCHV) is DISTINCTIVE because it combines private sector best practices into one location, serving as an enabler for many other veteran focused organizations.

Our wellness program supports holistic veteran health through our unique PMSER (Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, Relational) model for whole person healing.

NCHV brings together wholesome community, dignified work, economic opportunity, and empirically driven trauma recovery and life skills programs into a natural healing environment.

The Veteran Engagement Engine below explains NCHV integrative approach to veteran wellness. Our standard is Excellence of Care equal to Excellence of Infrastructure. NCHV’s real graduate level work is rewiring the brain, reshaping the heart, and restoring the soul.

Ready To Volunteer?

NCHV volunteers create a special community here at Valor Farm. From our regular volunteers who come weekly to help with cleaning or cooking to those who come once or twice a year as a church group or work organization. Many of our volunteers have mentioned how they get a sense of purpose coming and helping with our mission. Some have said, “This saved my life!” Over one-half of our volunteers are Veterans, all of whom give help or get help from others. NCHV volunteers now number over 700, an amazing show of community support. The NCHV volunteer movement is truly amazing, and we are truly grateful. Come join us!
