About Us

S.H.E.R.O.E.S.

 Serving, Honoring, Empowering, and Restoring Our Esteemed Servicewomen

 

Definition: 

A woman regarded as a hero.


Mission Statement:  

Passionately empowering our nation’s SHEROES to write the rest of their story.


Valor Ranch focuses on a holistic approach to empower our nation’s female veterans.  Each veteran is housed in her own “cottage” on the ranch, but shares in activities such as cooking, gardening, and tending to the animals to support the ranch population as a whole.  Additionally, our SHEREOS participate in group and one-on-one counseling, budgeting and cooking classes, and volunteering in the community in order to learn the life skills necessary to successfully transition into civilian life after Service to our Country.


Valor Ranch is the brainchild of a widow, mother, daughter, sister, and granddaughter of veterans, who has teamed up with the head of program operations of a local Veteran Service Organization based out of Ft. Worth, Texas. Together, they are on a mission to begin the journey of Serving, Honoring, Empowering, and Restoring Our Esteemed Servicewomen.


Vision Statement: 

Valor Ranch provides a safe, nurturing environment where SHEROES can stay for one to 12 months to refocus and outline the next chapter of her story.

Our Programs

A Safe Place

image15

Valor Ranch offers our Nation's Sheroes a network of sisters from a commitment to mutual respect, support, and sisterhood. In effect, it's a network built on the tried and true military concept of having your sister's "six". 


Put simply, Valor Ranch provides a safe place for military sisters to connect and encourage one another. Then, from this camaraderie and collective strength comes the opportunity for women to fight for improvements in the conditions that structure their lives, the lives of their sisters, and continue writing their story.

Equine Therapy

Caring for horses through grooming, feeding, and being around them has positive effects on the physical well being,communication skills, and much more.


Equine therapy allows the veteran to experiment with caring for another again. The relationship that develops between the veteran and horse becomes a powerful change agent.The presence of the horse helps to reflect the individuals’ actions in the moment. The facilitator translates feedback the horse is giving and prompts the client to think about her preconceived ideas about relationships, leadership, and communication.

Canine Therapy

PTS, MST and other military trauma is complex that is often treated with both therapy and medication. 


Therapy dogs can help prevent future issues like substance abuse. Having emotional support is crucial for individuals suffering from mental health issues like PTS, MST, or other military trauma.

Community Service

For many Veterans, this serves as an opportunity for them to give back in a way they haven’t been able to do so since leaving the military. It provides a strong sense of community for many Veterans and has helped pave the way for many to find jobs and become better acclimated to civilian life.

Ambassador/Mentor Program

image19

Leaders on the Ranch and in the community will act as outreach champions at events and meetups, promoting the Valor Ranch and its mission.


Ambassadors will increase mission on/off the ranch and cause exposure by sharing their own experiences and information.


Ambassadors will encourage the community to become supporters by introducing friends, family members and strangers to the need of support for the mission of Valor Ranch.


More importantly, Ambassadors will become mentors to the Sheroes on the ranch. Especially those who have been through the program.

Sister Chat

A major benefit of sister chat is validation. By being in a group with others struggling with similar challenges, you can see that you are not alone in your struggles.


Another benefit of sister chat is the ability to learn from the experiences of others. What worked and what didn't work. Helping others can increase self-esteem, as well as belief in your own abilities.


Finally, sister chat provides an excellent way of receiving social support from others. A group setting can provide you with the opportunity to develop supportive, trusting, and healthy relationships.
