Home of the Brave, Inc. is a Christian 501c3 non profit corporation located in Senatobia, Mississippi. A beautiful country setting for peace and tranquility close to many services returning veterans may need. We are a farming and ranching community that understands and values the sacrifices that military men and women make for Americans.

This first class facility consisting of bunkhouse, recreation room, mess hall, offices, woodworking shop, pottery shed and most importantly a chapel for worship and missions is now complete. In 2019 we added a ropes course and The Brave Challenge course for those that like to live on the edge. 

Our weekend, weekly and monthly programs offer veterans returning from military service a peaceful place to rest and refresh to help them transition into civilian life. Veterans that participate are taught sustainable living through farming, ranching, gardening, planning, and money management. Each program offers fun activities to challenge you physically and mentally as you work to achieve personal goals.

Home of the Brave, Inc.'s focus is to cultivate faith, hope, and love through mission projects and community outreach. Each month on the second Saturday, veterans meet at the ranch for lunch and fun activities.  

If you know of a veteran that would be interested in a retreat or camp please have them download the H4B Application below, fill it out and mail the application to us for approval into the program of their choice. 

Please Donate to this worthy organization or become a Brave Member by pledging monthly support. Members receive an official H4B Challenge Coin, a monthly newsletter and benefit from the variety of produce and products made on the farm. 


Please also pray that God will continue to bless us and lives will be enriched.
