Our Mission: To better the quality of life for our veterans and their families while strengthening the community.
Warrior Farm’s Chris Dorsey knows how hard it can be when you first get home from the service. Originally joining the army in 2001, when Chris got back home, he knew something was wrong.
With debilitating PTSD, Chris tried every available resource offered by the VA with no luck. He quickly found that returning soldiers didn’t get the support they needed and deserved from the currently available resources offered to veterans.
Using his background in agriculture, Chris set out on a mission to expand and improve the options for therapy to returning soldiers – thus the birth of the Warrior Overwatch and Warrior Farms projects.
Chris never wants another veteran to feel like they need to struggle alone. Bettering their quality of life is something Chris is passionate about – even going so far as wanting to build housing on the farm so veterans can stay and be a part of something bigger than themselves for as long as they please.
His eventual goal is to provide the necessary experience to these veterans so they can attain an accredited farm management degree, which will allow them to start their own farms. Chris seeks to make Warrior Farms a comfortable place, not only for veterans, but for their families and members of the public as well.
