Valor for Veterans is a veteran’s advocate group. We use the full circle from a fresh start to paying it forward theory that we created. We are a nationwide program which recognizes that it often takes a tribe to help those in need. So when we need more assistance in helping our veterans, we work with other nonprofits throughout the nation. In Valor for Veterans, we start by fixing the emergency problem(s) and then find out how the veteran and/or their family got into the situation they are in. We gather the resources they need from new jobs to benefits and other programs their families may find of assistance. As a program, if the problem is financial we often pay the bill(s) to get them caught up, and give them the fresh start they need by offering financial guidance to prevent the problem from happening again. We ask the veteran and/or their family to pay it forward by helping another veteran in the future.
Red Pollard once said, "Everyone thinks we found this broken down horse and fixed him, but he fixed us."
In the state of Colorado, we also have a horse retreat program at the Second Chance Ranch which brings families and veterans out to enjoy the peace and tranquility that only horses can give. We teach them to ride and enjoy working with the family or the individual teaching them about the unconditional love that horses can give. Click Here for more information.
