PERSONAL LIFE SKILLS
For many Veterans the transition to civilian life is challenging. Learning to navigate life without the structure that the military brings requires confidence in oneself, organizational skills, and self-discipline. Veterans are responsible for adhering to ranch life responsibilities and policies and maintaining personal hygiene and their individual living quarters. Whitetail staff support Veterans in learning time management.
Financial health is also important. Room and board are provided in-kind to ranch residents; therefore, veterans can save their veteran benefit allotments while living on the ranch. Local professionals provide fiscal management workshops.
Lastly, a healthy life does require a work life balance. Whitetail Ranch Center works with outside veteran non-profit groups to offer recreational activities for ranch residence. In addition, connecting veterans with veteran organizations, religious organizations, sporting activities, and non-veteran social groups supports a well-rounded opportunity for social engagement.
