The vision begins with a main lodge as the operations/event center providing areas for intake, registration, dining, and meeting rooms, master bedroom for a hired case manager, 6-8 single bedrooms, media center and a central gathering room. The Main Center will having dining, conference rooms and computer rooms where our Veterans may acquire new skills in "Information Technology", other occupations or vocational workshops, training sessions, group therapy and worship services. The vision continues with tiny house cabins providing a very quiet and peaceful serenity to it. It will have a look of commune living where our veterans can gather together in camaraderie, drink coffee, converse, or just relax. Continues with a Fitness and Wellness Center which will accommodate the physical and mental health of our veterans.

Today, Memorial Day, is a federal holiday remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces. We observe this event every year on the last Monday of May, to honor all Americans who died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end. The Rocky Mountain Veterans Village is established to continue honoring, not only our veterans who died but especially those from all eras who are living but often forgotten. America is the "home of the brave" but so many of our brave are "homeless". There is no honor in that. Hence, we seek your participation in continuing to honor our "brave" by giving "Hope" to our veterans at risk. We have an immediate opportunity to take these veterans off of the "streets of despair" into our "Village of Hope". We desperately need all patriotic Americans to give what you think is fair to enable us to acquire the Rocky Mountain "Village of Hope" where they will be housed in a "home" environment, trained in life and occupational skills, participate in rehabilitation and recreation and participate in an opportunity to build and own their own house. Please continue to honor our deceased and living heroes by joining us in this noble and necessary cause. If we DO NOT make this happen, more veterans will remain homeless, be deprived of being a community asset and achieving self actualization. They gave for us. Now it is our turn. DONATE, JOIN, VOLUNTEER. Observe Memorial Day and be proud of being part of the solution.

My heartfelt thanks goes out to Deborah Henderson and Gwen Carter for their very significant donations. Our business plan projections indicated that if each one of their friends tells a friend and they in turn tell a friend, we will be able to purchase our "Veterans Village" and within 30 days of acquisition begin the transition of forty veterans at risk of being homeless. We sincerely believe that this act of "Hope" will provide enormous gains in erasing the despair that many of our veterans are facing and thus, reduce the reason for suicide. Another positive impact is that the return of the veteran to the work force will significantly bolster their respective communities. I therefore strongly urge each and every one of you patriots to get aboard and get this movement moving. You win, the veteran wins and the community wins.
