Building a New Homestead for Our Veterans


Located in the most densely military populated area in the nation, Hampton Roads is in desperate need of a innovative homestead designated solely for our Veterans and their families. We have seen the need first hand. The battle does not end for our military service members when they return stateside. The war continues in the fight against trauma, and transition stress. 

We have seen the need and are committed to filling the void. Once we are fully funded with 1.5 Million dollars, we would have 30 acres in a sprawling and secluded area of southern Virginia Beach. The space would have a horse barn, a retreat center, counseling offices, lounge space, miles of wooded trails, gardens, and plenty of room for outdoor activities. 

This facility would allow for Trails of Purpose to invite 10 times as many participants through its doors. We would be capable of hosting family retreats and summer camps. We would also be able to provide for apprenticeship training in horsemanship, farming, gardening, nonprofit management, along with many other potential apprenticeship programs currently in the works. By allowing for such growth, we can provide community and support to many men and women who are fighting against PTSD and transition stressors everyday in our neighborhoods. 

We see the dire need to provide our Veterans and their families with community. We recognize their sacrifice and their suffering. We will stand beside them through both. We can not do this without you. Consider donating towards our 1.5 million dollar goal today.
