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 in the Inland Northwest
The purpose of Friends of Disabled Veterans is to offer a place where disabled veterans and their families can have a place to go where people appreciate and respect what they've been through. The goal is to help them feel completely accepted and included in a fun, relaxing environment.
Our program also takes disabled veterans with a family member or friend on local hunts. We have acquired private land access to hunting with landowners that want to give back to our disabled veterans that have given so much for us!! Our members have helped create/design unique scissor lifts on trailers that our veterans can reach up to 20 feet in the air to view the surrounding area for their hunt.
With such a high suicide rate amongst our veterans, as well as the struggles of PTSD and the difficulty of re-assimilating into everyday life, we want to help these service men and women know that we appreciate them and care enough to offer an outlet through friendship, fellowship, and activities with fellow servicemen/women and others that genuinely care.
This getaway will be a place where they get spoiled and participate in numerous outdoor/indoor activities. These activities include but are not limited to camping, horseback riding, indoor/outdoor gatherings, shooting at the archery, pistol and rifle ranges. All of which will be designed specifically for ADA compliance and at NO COST!!
- Find new property to purchase (In Tri-Cities area)
- Establish a campground and gathering spot
- 10 spots for RV/Trailer parking
- Horse stables
- ADA compliant bathroom facility with archery, rifle, and pistol range
- Acquire more private access hunting land
- Build an event and gathering lodge/facility
Currently, we do not have a location for our veterans to get away specifically designed with these needs in mind. Since 2016 our members /volunteers have worked hard 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!! Visit our Go Fund Me Page by clicking the donate button below.
