About HOPE FARMS:
First of all THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your interest in HOPE
FARMS FOR VETERANS ! !
This is our plans:
HOPE FARMS WILL BE FREE FOR ANY VETERAN THAT AGREES TO OUR TERMS AND CONDITIONS TO ENTER OUR TWO YEAR TRAINING PROGRAM.
Our mission is to help ANY Veteran, PTSD veterans, MST veteran, or any disabled combat
veterans reintegrate back into society through the use of horticulture therapy,
while working together in a relaxed, open environment. Veterans will work as a
team to develop solutions that will enable them to overcome physical and mental
barriers. To form a coalition of Veteran support organizations to work together. To help any Veteran that needs our help.
Our goals are:
to be a place of transition for any Veteran that needs time for healing.
to provide a home and a job to restore hope.
to help make the transition back into civilian life.
to partner with as many organizations as possible to assist any veteran, or any
disabled veterans to restore their hope in themselves.
to train and teach veterans how to run a small business in their local community
to expand out to all fifty states.
We want to make a connection between our veterans and the
civilian community at large. The way we do this is by:
1) Having our veterans/disabled veterans develop organic, hydroponic,
aquaculture, and bamboo farms or any products that they might have made.
2) To show the public that veterans and disabled veterans can be successful
working in the civilian world.
3) To educate our veterans to make the transition back into civilian life and to
become valued citizens in their community.
4) To aid and assist our veterans in benefits applications for VA claims or
5) To collaborate and work with local organizations, farmers, organic
associations, community business leaders and any local community trade
schools, colleges and universities to aid any of our veterans.
6. To have a funding program to support "Hope Farms" without taking any type of
grant from the Federal Government. Our "Pay-It-Forward" program is in the
development stage now. We will use this program to support each farm until it
becomes a profitable farm in the local community.
