Servicemen


WMVR is a non-profit veterans outreach set on helping the service men and women who have essentially been "left behind". The VA and most veteran non-profits are only willing to help to a certain extent, WMVR is here to go the extra mile to make sure that the men and women who bravely served our country get what they deserve. We stand true to the phrase, "No man left behind".

Not what you expected, but definitely what you needed ...

WMVR has devoted a good portion of our resources to make sure that veterans coming to us have everything they need. Whether it's a place to live or just a place to get away, WMVR wants to make sure that your needs are met. Just north of Hardy Dam in White Cloud, Michigan, we have a parcel of land where we are creating housing and activity centers for veterans nationwide to get centered. The focus is to help reintegrate veterans into civilian life, and to help homeless veterans back to their feet, but no veteran will be turned away because no one gets left behind.

1. Non-profit

Unlike most, when we say non-profit, we mean it. We are 100% volunteer run and operated, to ensure your donations go to the veterans and their families. ALL members of WMVR donate their time purely because we want to honor our fellow service men and women, from the founders down to the newest volunteer.

2. Connected

Our organization may be small but between our prior service connections and those of us who are still serving, we have many avenues in the civilian and the government sectors that we can access to make sure that things keep moving. Our diverse network grants us access to not only other non-profits but multiple veteran orginizations throughout the nation.

3.  Enjoyment

Just because some of what we do can be tedious, we're still constantly smiling for two reasons. 
1. We genuinely enjoy helping.
2. We break up the monotunous with new and exciting events to keep things from growing stale. 

4. Bonding

We are here to help, and we realize that sometimes the official setting can cause a feeling of awkwardness. If we need to show up in blue jeans and talk over a cup of coffee, then that's what we will do. If a more formal setting is what the situation requires, we can be just as professional as any corporate office. We cater to the needs of those we're serving, and by doing so we're able to remind them of the brotherhood that the military instilled into us. By the end of the first meeting, we will leave a lasting impression and a sense of belonging. A feeling of family, that will do anything to ensure their needs will be met. Our goal is to know they won't hesistate to make us the first person they call in a time of need.

"I just wanted to tell you how West Michigan Veterans Ranch has helped my family when my husband John was sick and dying. We had been trying for a while to get a wheelchair ramp for about 2-3 months from the VA, but the park where we live was giving us a hassle about the ramp from the VA because it was metal. My sister-in-law got a hold of TV8 about it and it aired last year in May.

West Michigan Veterans Ranch along with Hometown Battles got a hold of us, they wanted to build a wheelchair ramp & deck for us. I was a little careful because we didn't have money for anything. But they came and talked to us and told us it wouldn't cost us anything at all. They brought in carpenters and volunteers, and they already had donations that took care of everything, permits and all.

They got volunteers to work with them and it took them less than 2 weeks from start to finish. They worked morning and night, they were all so very kind and caring, even after all was said and done. They were still around right up to and after my husband passed. When it was near the end they stayed and were here for when he passed. They helped me so very much with the funeral and everything else. In fact, my husband and I called them our lifesavers. We were so blessed by them for everything they did and still do. They are the real heroes.

Sincerely,


Amy B."
