To the Finish Line
Help us fulfill our 2021 funding goal to complete work on our Veteran’s Bunkhouse and host our first Strongpoint by the end of the year.
Thanks to our generous donors we raised $300,000 in three years to meet our minimum funding goal for the Bunkhouse, which houses up to 20 participants and allows handicapped veterans to experience The Ranch. With construction due for completion in September, we need $50,000 this year to get us the rest of the way there, paying for necessities including furniture, finishing touches and the budget to continue hosting programs. Please consider giving today.
In 2016 when we began hosting programs for veterans in our own home, this structure was just a dream. Because of your generous donations, a structure specifically designed for the benefit of our nation's veterans is now a reality!
Strongpoint Theinert Ranch (STR) is a place where active and veteran military members, their families, and Gold Star families come together to strengthen themselves both physically and mentally, transition through life’s challenges, and reconnect with friends, family, and most importantly themselves, as they bond over shared experiences and participate in a wide range of activities amongst the natural beauty of the scenic mountains and open prairies of New Mexico.
Programs at Strongpoint Theinert Ranch are kept small, so that each trip can be customized to the needs and interests of that group. Our agility and flexibility allows us to better serve our members.
Our goal is to create a sense of community at Strongpoint Theinert Ranch that allows our participants to come away stronger than they arrived with newfound energy and friendships to improve their overall quality of life.
Strongpoint Theinert Ranch is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is entirely funded by donations. There is no charge for veterans, veteran families, or Gold Star families to visit the Ranch.

Unit Specific Strongpoint
When a military unit is hit with a particularly challenging event, be it: mass casualties, suicide epidemic, or having lost connection with each other. This shared Strongpoint can serve as a catalyst for healing.
With nearly one million acres of National Forest in our backyard it would be a shame not to explore it. More physically challenging, but just as healing, as a traditional Strongpoint
Gold Star Mothers
As a family who lost someone in service to our country, we understand the pain and challenges it can cause. We were honored to host a group of Gold Star Mothers to come to The Ranch and offer healing opportunities.
Partnered with Mashomack Preserve
When a veteran returns home from a Strongpoint the work continues as they involve their family in the healing process. Reunions allow us to integrate veterans and families.

Even the roads at STR qualify as mountain biking paths, a great group activity.
The only traffic you'll find here is a tumbleweed or two.
Together we hike, work, grow and improve.
