What We Do

Our purpose is to “Return Healthy Veterans to America.” We address health in terms of physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, and relational wellness. The National Center for Healthy Veterans (NCHV) distinctive is that longer-term participation in dignified work and learning opportunities creates a firm foundation that enables true life change and future success. Our Patriots are immersed in a healing and wellness culture, grow through best-practice/faith-based programs, and create relationships through community.

Serving veterans in the Greater Lynchburg area and from across the nation! We operate primarily on a referral basis. These referrals come from community veteran programs, regional veteran networks, national veteran service support organizations, and a large number of faith-based military outreach nonprofits.

Every Patriot will have a mentor and will progress through their own Personal Development Plan (PDP) in accordance with their specific needs and goals. The PDP tracks status and progress across 5 categories: Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, and Relational (PMSER). As well, the PDP tracks progress in specific trauma recovery, life skills curricula, and professional development programs. The Patriot will complete the Resilience God Style Curriculum (12 weeks), REBOOT Combat Recovery programs for Veterans and First Responders (video), and Career Prep (IVET Curriculum, et al).

PDP elective courses may include equine-assisted therapy, life skills, financial literacy, effective communication, conflict resolution, diet and nutrition, sleep management, art therapy, marriage and family and trauma recovery.
