Central Oregon Veterans Ranch (COVR) is a 19-acre working farm property located in the HEART of CENTRAL OREGON...

Our MISSION is "A working Ranch that restores purpose and spirit to veterans of all ages."

COVR was started by a group of concerned citizends and VETERANS who wanted to provide an alternative to traditional medical model of care that alienates so many of our nations veterans...

WE wanted to create a SANCTUARY where veterans could help veterans and...

Where veterans could:

- Engage in agricultural activities in a natural, healing setting that fostered camaraderie and a sense of MEANING and PURPOSE.

- Find PEER SUPPORT and healing among different generations of veterans from OEF/OIF to Vietnam to WWII.

-  Receive TRAUMA-INFORMED END OF LIFE CARE in a unique setting with specially trained staff and volunteers, including VETERAN COMPANIONS.

- Become part of a hub of veterans and access other valuable community RESOURCES via the Ranch.

Our INNOVATIVE approach to care is a model that is now being sought out around our state and around the nation.  

WE NEED YOUR HELP to help us keep moving forward with the momentum and success we've developed so far, and to PURCHASE the Central Oregon Veterans Ranch.

In 2015 we partnered with a very GENEROUS PRIVATE INVESTOR to secure our beautiful 19-acre property. Now we want to pay him back and OWN THE RANCH!!
