Our sanctuary was built by Vietnam Veteran, Dan R. Strain, his wife Tana Strain, Desert Storm Veteran Hayes Wilson, and his wife Stacy. Non-profit founder Stacy Strain Wilson prayed from the onset of the move to the sanctuary, for her father to see at least one veteran helped on the land he grew up on. She waited for over a year.

One Sunday morning she prayed that same prayer and God said, "Why do you keep asking for what I have already provided?"  Images of her Father and her Husband laughing, plowing with the tractor, and digging in the dirt flashed across her eyes.....along with tears of joy.

Her Father and her Husband were the first Veterans to get therapy and begin to heal at Home Place Veteran and Animal Sanctuary. Thank God for every blessing because everything He gives is purposeful.
