"Recently, My family and I had come up on hard times. We had suffered many losses of loved ones in our family and loss of employment all at once. I reached out to the West Michigan Veterans Ranch for help, Within hours they stepped in and treated my family as their own. We received help with groceries and a gas card to help my family through the week. Without them, my wife and I would not have been able to make it to the appointments needed to find a new job and for my children to see their doctors. We had no groceries in our home, but thanks to the WMVR we were able to eat that week.
Thank you all so much for what you have done for my family.
"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 May 2017.
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.
