Central Oregon Veterans Ranch

After six years of working as a trauma therapist for the Department of Veterans Affairs, Alison Perry envisioned a working ranch where veterans could begin the journey of post traumatic recovery in a new way. As an alternative to the medical model and psychiatric ward she had been working in, Alison and her advisory board outlined what has turned into Central Oregon Veteran’s Ranch, a working ranch that restores purpose and spirit to veterans of all ages.
