How We Are Of Service

Horticultural Holistic Health and Wellness Program

The Men and Women Veterans Served

Veterans in Supportive Situations

These are veterans who are receiving some type of support from a veterans service organization but have needs beyond the help they are receiving.

How We Are Making A Difference

Healthy state of mind, body, and spirit: By providing veterans the health and wellness tools to increase their ability to be self-sufficient, more involved in the wellbeing of other veterans as well as being positive contributors to their communities and society.

Eddie Beard Vet House Program Model

Transitional housing environment model demonstrates the value in combining health and wellness interaction with essential self-reliance support and tools into a powerful health and wellness force for veterans, individually and collectively.
