Our Vision

The National Veterans Vocational Village (NV3) is a self-sustaining Vocational Training Center & Residential Village that educates, employs & houses veterans, transitioning them from military and first responder duties to civilian life, creating "Esprit De Corps" and building lifesaving, lasting connections.

To restore a sense of community and purpose and ignite HOPE among disabled and injured veterans as well as those with wounds that are not visible.

Ground Breaking Mission

Village ground-breaking is planned for 2025 coinciding with the 35th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Awareness and fundraising activities for between 40 and 2000 acres of land will precede ground-breaking.

  • Phase I - 2025-2027

    Central to NV3 is a village of accessible housing to be made available for disabled veterans and those with invisible wounds. The NV3 village development is modeled after a European Village or a small US military installation. On the compound vocational training facilities are included, including a helipad for those who wish to fly again.

  • Phase II - 2027-2028

    The next phase of NV3 development is a larger assortment of housing, the expansion of educational/ vocational offerings and recreational activities. Housing planned includes the following:

    Community Life in a multi-residence (house apartments) complex
