Frequently Asked Questions

What is A Warrior’s Oasis?

A Warrior’s Oasis, Inc. is a military focused non-profit organization that plans to serve all military branches across the United States and work with Health Care professionals who are dedicated to supporting people who are hurting from post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury and military sexual trauma.

We also welcome service members with or with out families who are weary from deployment fatigue to come and find rest and rejuvenation.  

Where is A Warrior’s Oasis?

The ranch is a peaceful, 480 acres setting located in a quiet, beautiful rural area outside of Quemado, New Mexico.

The ranch with individual cabins, a galley, reading rooms and fitness center, hiking trails, fishing, and equine therapy available for service members and veterans to decompress with their immediate families. It is our mission to help families reconnect and re-bond after stressful deployments, in addition to supporting those who are suffering from PTS, MST and TBI.

How Can This Help Me and My Family?

Peace and relaxation that comes from release of tensions and stress can last for several hours to even days.

It is during this time that an individual, couple or family can give rise to a new direction of thoughts and patterns.

From these new thought patterns, we believe that a new way of seeing life and the daily circumstances can take hold and develop into a new direction of healing.

Our goal: to provide environment that feels relaxing, peaceful and comforting.

AWO’s mission is to provide relief for those who need it by providing a quiet place without the everyday triggers and chaos. Fishing, hiking, equine therapy, and many others activities in an environment where the mind and body at rest can let the soul heal.

This allows for professional certified therapists who have experience with PTS, MST and TBI to assist Soldiers, Sailors, Airman, Guardsman, Marines and veterans to find a way to manage these effects in a peaceful and safe environment.

When did A Warrior’s Oasis begin?

Time Line

Summer 2016 - The idea began when we were discussing the painful status of a few dear friends that suffer from post-traumatic stress, and how they and their families were struggling to exist with this debilitating condition. We began to think about what we could do to help them and others. Many hours of discussions occurred as the concept began to take shape and form.

January 2017 - With a nod and blessing from our respective spouses, we decided to create an organization to provide a place where service members, veterans, and their families could go to rejuvenate.

August 2017 – We had a name ~ and 'A Warrior’s Oasis' was born. The logo concept for our new vision was passed to two active, duty Navy Sailors to create. Next, we flew from Orange County, California to New Mexico so we could take a look at some properties. When we saw Silver Sky Ranch, we knew this 480-acre property was the perfect place where this incredible opportunity to serve those who serve(d) our nation would begin.

September 2017 - Escrow was opened on Silver Sky Ranch in Quemado, New Mexico. AWO's Board of Directors was formed, and A Warrior’s Oasis was officially incorporated in New Mexico, by the Secretary of State on September 28, 2017.

November 2017 - A Warrior’s Oasis, Inc.'s logo was completed and we began moving forward at light speed!

December 13, 2017 - A Warrior’s Oasis, Inc.'s 1023 application was filed successfully with the IRS for the non-profit 501(c)3 status.

January 2018 - David and Rene closed escrow on Silver Sky Ranch for A Warrior's Oasis, Inc.

February 5, 2018 - The IRS sent a 'Letter of Determination' officially designating A Warrior’s Oasis, Inc as a non-profit entity, backdating AWO's 501(c)3 status date to our incorporation date of September 28, 2017.

March 2018 - A Warrior’s Oasis website (awarriorsoasis.org) went live and A Warrior’s Oasis logo received its official copyright of the hand-drawn logo crafted by active duty USN Sailors. And now, our joyful mission begins!

Mid 2020- A Warrior's Oasis opens its ranch gates to serve veterans and service members.
