Our Programs

Agricultural Therapy

WVWR is a resiliency agricultural program established by veterans and for veterans of all military branches. We can no longer turn a blind eye to the alarming rates of veteran suicide, depression, divorce, homelessness, and substance abuse. By providing resources through farming, raising animals, fishing, trails, gardening, horseback riding, beekeeping, and fostering master resiliency techniques we seek to provide veterans and their families with the tools necessary to live their best life!

Community Support

Did you know that only 1% of United States citizens have ever served in the military?  That’s right!  1% defend the 99%!

Now is your chance to serve those who have so selflessly served you!

NEW WVWR SANCTUARY BARN!

We have added the new Sanctuary Barn in an effort to use animal therapy in our fight again mental health issues such as combat related stress, PTSD and depression. Whirlwind Veterans and Warrior Retreat is proud to bring together our passion for animals with our love and support of our dear veterans.

MEMORIAL POND COMING SUMMER OF 2024

Our newest pond will be completed the Summer of 2024 and will be dedicated to fallen Petty Officer Jared Metro of Hamburg, NY. He passed away tragically on 11 September 2020. A huge thank you to NOCO, AMVETS, TC Contracting of Hamburg, Union Concrete, National Fuel, Kelleran Services, CTS Contracting and Ron Gier for making this project possible.
