Farming Campus to Help Heal Veterans

With the help of your Donations, we seek to  develop an agricultural program which will provide treatment, agricultural job training and placement for homeless veterans diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury.
The agricultural program aids veterans to heal in mind, body and spirit; it begins with several phases of rehabilitation, intended to mirror the military structure in which these veterans thrived.
Next they will learn skills in farming, culinary arts and creating artisanal products, which they will sell to the local community. The facility will provide residence and opportunities for case management, mental health, spiritual health and physical activity, social reintegration and job skills growth.

STAG VETS is developing a small agri-business located at Comfort Farms headquartered in Milledgeville, GA, where veterans can achieve recovery, acquire training, and plan for gainful employment in agriculture. Our Holistic program will use the elements of nature and grounding therapy to heal veterans. It is a large undertaking, but we are committed to develop this working facility with your support and the support of local and national partners.

When you are ready to assist veterans to heal mind, body and spirit through our comprehensive and ground breaking program, please reach out to us in the contact section of this website.
